DataServ’s Leadership Team
Founded by experienced business people as a Software as a Service company before SaaS was cool. We have built the smartest team in the industry, with more Certified AP Consulting Professionals than any other provider.
Furthermore, we pride ourselves on our commitment to providing best practice change management and continuous process improvement, which is demonstrated by the fact that over 70% of our clients have been with us for over 10 years.
Co-Founder & CEO, CRO
Jeff has been building companies and fueling his entrepreneurial spirit for over two decades. His expertise spans several industries, including consulting, information technology, and telecom — all of which led to the founding of DataServ in 1994. Although the term had not been developed yet, DataServ was the first Software as a Service (SaaS) provider of document and process automation. Jeff has led the company through many growth phases and three recessions – all while successfully building and maintaining strong client relationships. He is frequently a speaker at AP and Shared Services industry events and serves on the Leadership Council of the University of Missouri – St. Louis College of Business Administration. Jeff is the former board president of the Foster & Adoptive Care Coalition, which focuses on eliminating the time kids spend in foster care by quickly finding homes.
