Co-Founder, Chief Executive Officer: Virtuance
Jeff is the Co-Founder and current CEO of Virtuance: a real estate photography, visual marketing, and technology company based in Denver, Colorado. Under Jeff’s command, the business has quickly grown from a small two-person startup, to one of the leading providers of real estate photography in the country and has landed on the INC 1,000 as one of the 1,000 fastest growing private companies in the US.
Included in Virtuance’s long list of awards is repeatedly being named the 4th best place to work in Denver in both 2016 and 2018. Jeff was quoted in the DBJ report saying, “Perks and benefits are great crowd pleasers, but the best way to make employees feel valued is to let them know they matter.”
Virtuance also recently received the prestigious ‘Best of Houzz 2018 Service Award’.
Following a career in journalism and commercial real estate, Jeff earned his Masters Degree from the University of Denver before founding Virtuance in 2010. He started the company with the idea that creative technology could solve some of the most difficult and ongoing challenges of real estate visual marketing. The state of the industry had long been tied to an inefficient relationship between price and image quality – the higher the quality, the more expensive the service. Virtuance challenged that longstanding notion from day one by providing high-quality, extremely marketable images at some of the lowest prices of any available photography solution.
Outside of work, Jeff is actively involved in Entrepreneur’s Organization and is passionate about supporting entrepreneurial development.
Jeff resides in his hometown of Denver, Colorado with his wife, Ashley. Jeff and Ashley have two young children: Emory (3) and Levi (1). They enjoy spending time in the mountains and taking advantage of everything the great state of Colorado has to offer.
