After holding management positions in the non-profit arts & commercial entertainment industries for fifteen years, Jeff joined Red 7 Media in Norwalk CT. where he helped launch the Event Marketing Institute (EMI) as Member Services Director in 2007. He was named Executive Director of the Exhibit Designers & Producers Association (EDPA) in 2008. Jeff has worked side-by-side with eleven association Presidents, the officers and full Board of Directors to push the growth and health of EDPA’s membership base as well as its many programs which include the EDPA Foundation, a separate not-for-profit organization.
Jeff launched PRO Management LLC in late 2015 to continue the association management work of the EDPA as well as the EDPA Foundation. By all accounts (except Jeff’s’) the transition was seamless. And after 60+ years, Jeff was instrumental in the official & legal name change of the association in early 2017, now known as the EXPERIENTAL Designers & Producers Association (EDPA).
An undergraduate of The Catholic University of America in Wash. DC., Jeff did his graduate work at Yale University where he earned his master’s degree in Nonprofit Management. When not enjoying his lifelong passion for live theatre, you’ll find Jeff volunteering his time in the Pediatric Unit (7.2) of Yale New Haven Hospital, where he performs bedside magic for children and their families.
