Jeff’s vision for Tinley, from founding through today, has been to build an early-mover, premium brand manufacturer and marketing company in the emerging cannabis beverage sector. Previously, Jeff spent a decade in venture capital, merchant and investment banking, focusing on emerging industries including marijuana, health foods and technology. He drove growth from inception to $500 million as VP Corporate Development at an IPTV start up, and financed several medical marijuana companies in Los Angeles.
The Tinley Beverage Company combines Jeff’s investment, financing and management track record with beverage brand creation experience at the Watt Design Group, the second-largest food and beverage branding firm in North America, then owned by Cott Corporation, the world’s largest cola company after Coke and Pepsi.
