Jeff was involved in the photography business for 26 years managing stores, co-owning stores and as a Technical and Senior Account Executive with Minolta Corp. until their sale of the photographic division to Sony.

A position opened at Jeanneau America where for the next 9 years Jeff was the Commercial Product Specialist responsible for all boat shows throughout North America, technical training and support for the Jeanneau dealer network, working with the factories both in France and the U.S. on the introduction and production of new models.
