Jeff has been in the industry for more than 40 years. In 1968, while still a business administration student at the University of Utah, he joined Wasatch in the line department. Shortly after that, he moved into the office and worked his way up through a series of increasingly responsible positions, including assistant project manager, project manager, and service department manager. He then moved into his current position. He has successfully negotiated projects for more than 20 years.
In addition to business administration courses at the University of Utah and advanced business classes at New York University, Jeff has attended numerous seminars and training sessions on leadership skills, design/build project requirements, and value-added subcontracting. Most recently, he attended the Gettysburg Foundation’s seminar, "Leadership Training for the Twenty-First Century".
