Jeff’s passion for Fleet Feet is quite literally in his blood—his parents Kathy and Bob own three Fleet Feet stores in the Raleigh area. After first working for his parents beginning in 2009, Jeff joined the Store Support Team full-time in 2014 as database analyst for the brand’s POS and inventory management system.

Jeff grew up in Hillsborough and graduated from Appalachian State University with a degree in international and comparative politics. His time working for his parents on the sales floor laid the foundation for all he does in his current role, from setting up vendor catalogs in RICS, placing weekly orders for Fleet Feet’s distribution center, and running point on POS setup for store conversions.

Jeff works remotely for Fleet Feet from his home in Winchester, Va., with his wife, Lauren (Fun fact: Jeff makes lunch for her every day before she goes to work teaching), and boxer, Rose. When not traveling back to visit with his family, Jeff enjoys going on hikes with Lauren and Rose as well as getting in an early morning run around Blandy Experimental Farm at Virginia State University.
