Working closely with the iMasons Board of Directors and staff, Jeff is responsible for overall strategy and execution to meet iMason’s mission, planning, budget and financial management, with a particular focus on meeting iMason’s gender and other diversity goals, education and university partnerships, mentorship and intern programs, and oversight of iMason’s corporate giving program – the iMasons Fund.
Prior to joining iMasons, Jeff founded the Green Electronics Council and managed its flagship program, EPEAT, from start-up to become the premiere eco-rating program for electronics on the planet. EPEAT is used by thousands of public organizations and private enterprises world-wide to specify and choose greener electronics. In 2012 the combined purchase spend on electronics of these large purchasers topped $50 billion USD, and it continues to grow. This large market for EPEAT-registered more-sustainable electronics attracted the participation of all leading multinational manufacturers of PCs, displays, printer-like products, TVs, mobile phones, and in 2018 servers, improving the business case for making more-sustainable electronics worldwide. As Executive Director of GEC and of EPEAT, Jeff led this industry-changing, mission-driven nonprofit from start-up to global market leadership.
Jeff started his career in the tech industry in the Silicon Valley, and later owned and managed a small consultancy. He received an MS from Stanford University on an Executive Fellowship in the Honors Co-op Program. He lives in Portland, Oregon, where he is an avid(ish) backcountry skier and road cyclist.
