Jeff co-founded Clinipace Worldwide in 2003 with the idea of building a clinical research company that would take a different approach to managing clinical trials. He wanted to build a company where technology served as the foundation of the research. At Clinipace Worldwide, technology is in our DNA with Jeff and his team successfully delivering a technology-amplified approach to conducting research resulting in strong year-over-year growth.
Prior to founding Clinipace Worldwide, Jeff held several executive-level positions within the life sciences and software industries. As CEO of NextAudio, an early pioneer in Internet-based services, he successfully merged the company with Koz to create Mediaspan where company expanded to over 200 employees and more than $26 million in sales.
Additionally, Jeff was a co-founder of HealthMatics, one of the first electronic medical records (EMR) software providers, which was sold to A4 Health and later acquired by Allscripts. Prior to these technology endeavors Jeff spent 10 years at Ciba (now Novartis) and 2 years at Glaxo Wellcome. During this period, he pioneered some of the earliest direct-to-consumer advertising campaigns within the industry and shared marketing-based responsibility for one of the largest Phase IV studies ever conducted at the time (over 10,000 patients).
Jeff served on the Board of Directors for CampbellAlliance (prior to its acquisition by InVentiv) and currently services on the Board at Cathedral Corporation, a leader in print and electronic data output services.
Jeff has a Bachelor of Science degree in Chemistry with minors in Business Management and Biology from the University of Tampa.
