After working in corporate finance Jeff built a sustainability consulting practice at Natural Capitalism Solutions that engaged corporations representing 3% of U.S. GDP. He led a team to develop a new business model and concept design for the renovation of the Alliance Center. The value of their building rose 3x and their annual revenue doubled.
