Jeff is also an Omaha, NE native who has lived in California, Colorado and now resides in Lahaina, HI. Even though Jeff and his spouse, Courtney, are new to Lahaina, he and his spouse are not new to rolling up their sleeves to serve community.  Jeff is a Financial Professional with a Midwest work ethic who has over 18 years of experience.  This experience has allowed him to hone his skills in Annual Planning, Financial Modeling, P&L Management, Product Costing, Bookkeeping, Payroll, and Supply Chain Operations.  Amid the COVID-19 pandemic, Jeff made the decision to pivot.  Using his toolbelt of skill sets, network of relationships, and faith, he decided to establish Amentous, LLC.  Jeff has had the unique opportunity to work with several large and start-up companies.  He draws from a breadth of experience across many roles within ConAgra Foods, Sara Lee, Danone-Whitewave, Boulder Brands, Califlour Foods, and Mutual of Omaha.  Outside of the office, Jeff had held President and Treasurer positions for a 501(c)(3) in Erie, CO.  He continues to spend time working towards industry credentials and enjoys a variety of outdoor activities such as SCUBA diving, hiking, cycling, and pickleball.  He is also passionate about spending quality time with his wife Courtney, his four kids, Keegan, Kennidy, Karson and Kampbell and learning how to create culinary experiences to enjoy with others.  (All four children joined the Zoom meeting from the mainland to see their parents’ induction ceremony!)
To quote Jeff: “Courtney and I are grateful of our Rotarian Sponsors Larry and Joanne Laird, who have provided us with the opportunity to join the Rotary Club of Lahaina Sunset Maui to continue to share our spirit of continuous improvement.  We joined this club because we find the opportunity to serve richly rewarding and a sense of self-fulfillment”.
