Jeff’s job is talking and telling the industry’s story, but his official fancy title is NACS Vice President of Strategic Industry Initiatives. What that means is that he helps find ways to partner credible nutrition and community-focused groups to decrease misperceptions and underscore the industry’s positive business practices to the public, media and policymakers.
And, of course, talk about fuels. Don’t get him started with mind-numbing details and trivia related to the history of fueling (Col. Sanders once owned gas stations!) or stats and other details about America’s fueling stations, convenience stores.
Along the way, Jeff has conducted nearly 6,000 media interviews and has been part of hundreds of videos, on both sides of the camera. Not bad for someone with an engineering degree (Worcester Polytechnic Institute) and also a graduate degree (Syracuse University).
