Vice President - Operations

Jeff brings more than 30 years of senior level business operations experience to the Amplify team.  He began his Maine career developing and managing the procurement, supply chain and logistics divisions at IDEXX Laboratories, ultimately growing their distribution and logistics operations across five continents.

His experience managing healthcare operations was on full display as COO of Synernet, Inc. During this time the business expanded to encompass 6 separate operating divisions, servicing hospital systems throughout North America. This growth led to a successful buyout and sale to MaineHealth, Inc. 

Most recently Jeff utilized his experiences to teach Entrepreneurship and Business Marketing classes to high school students in Arizona, with that program being recognized by Governor Ducey and the State Legislature for its innovative and creative approach to our youth.

Jeff and his wife have moved back to Maine and enjoy golfing, skiing, hiking, their two grandchildren, and their Puerto Rican rescue dog named Rummy.
