After growing up in Los Angeles, Jeff received his bachelor’s degree from Rutgers College in New Brunswick, New Jersey, and then returned to Los Angeles to earn his law degree from Loyola Law School. He began his career in sports law at sports management firms representing such professional athletes as Shaquille O’Neal, John Randle, Pete Carroll and Willie McGinest. Taking this background in law and management, he joined ConvExx in 2006 to oversee all contract negotiations and oversight of the operations teams, and earned his CEM in 2010. He has since been elevated to President & CEO of ConvExx, where he has demonstrated his leadership skills when ConvExx took over as Show Management for the SHOT Show and guided his team with only six months to prepare for the show. In fact, Expo Magazine awarded Jeff the Expo Elite Award in 2014 for his accomplishment in successfully navigating the transition. Over the last several years, Jeff has overseen tremendous growth for ConvExx and its shows, including continued expansion of the SHOT Show, acquisition and expansion of Mobile Tech Expo in both Orlando and Las Vegas, as well as the engagement by the National Confectioners Association in 2018 to assist with managing the Sweets & Snacks Expo held annually in Chicago. Jeff lives in Las Vegas with his wife, Jill, and two daughters, Amanda & Rachel.
