Jeff grew up in the metal recycling business and at a very young age, learned the value of customer service and the importance of understanding customer needs. By high school graduation, Jeff was well versed in the business. He pursued his passion at UC Santa Barbara, earning a degree in Aquatic Biology in 1991. At UCSB, he had the opportunity to spend some time studying in Paris, France. He also rowed crew for UCSB.
The values and work ethic developed during that time helped lay the foundation for starting his own company and formed the work culture that exists to this day. With years of experience working in the family business, Jeff decided to forge his own path and, in March 1999, Jeff founded Industrial Metal Service, Inc. formally known as Industrial Metal Recycling, Inc.
When Jeff is not focused on the metal business, he spends his time restoring vintage Ford Broncos, surfing, fishing, and enjoying time with his family. He loves to play soccer and coaches the local high school soccer team.
