He is responsible for leading the digital and eCommerce initiatives for Wiha’s North, Central, and South American business.
Over the past decade, Jeffrey has done everything from managing explosive growth at a pure-play eCommerce company to leading sales and marketing for a non-profit travel company.

Jeffery commented, “Wiha has premium products with a loyal following, which is a marketer’s dream. Our job on the eCommerce team is less about selling and more about making the brand’s digital experience seamless and meeting customers wherever they are online.” When asked what unique traits he will bring to the company Jeffrey responded, “A growth mindset, as I choose to view limitations as future opportunities for us to do better as a company serving our customers.”
Lastly, Jeffery was asked to provide his favorite quote and he replied with the following,
