Jed Jacobs
Business Strategy

Jed is an acknowledged consulting expert on small–mid size businesses, as his experience (2001–present) is in working with over a hundred small businesses ($5–150M) that needed turnaround or start-up expertise. With total command of the financial, strategic, and cultural landscape of privately held business, Jed’s hand on approach and high degree of accountability saved or assisted in the significant growth of virtually every one of his clients. One of his earliest clients came up with the name “The CEO’s-CEO”. It stuck.

Prior to his consulting experience, Jed was the CEO of a privately held fragrance and flavor company. Prior to that, Jed ran one of Panasonic’s US companies.

Jed has held numerous EVP and VP of Sales and Marketing positions with impressive awards, including 21 “best vendor” honors at the companies he led.

Jed acquired his MBA (1989) from the University of Pennsylvania’s Wharton School, and earned his undergraduate degree from Northern Illinois University (’72) in political science, history and education, where he founded the Learning Exchange, which grew into a free university, as well as starting his own fraternity.

Jed is the proud father of three grown sons, and loves to talk about (and play) golf, current events, and history.

Jed’s core belief: “In all the fabulous years of record breaking P&L/balance sheet statements, my proudest achievement is mentoring those who have gone on to wonderful achievements themselves.”
