Jeff has nearly 20 years of experience, primarily as a successful Wall Street analyst, having published research on more than 100 public and private technology companies. He is often quoted in leading financial publications and has appeared as a guest on CNBC and Bloomberg News.

“Jeff is a very welcome addition to our team,” said Stephen Day, Co-founder and Managing Director of Navidar. “His research, investment analysis, and industry expertise will further enhance our leading middle corridor investment banking platform. We are delighted that a veteran of Jeff’s status will deepen our industry expertise, strengthen our capital-market initiatives, and lead our research efforts.”

Before that, he served as a business valuation analyst at Houlihan Valuation Advisors. He has earned the designation of Chartered Financial Analyst® (CFA) Charterholder and holds an MBA from DePaul University as well as a BA in Computer Science and Philosophy from Indiana University.

“I was drawn to Navidar’s impressive track record of generating outlier results for SaaS software companies located in the middle corridor of the U.S. The Navidar team is well-respected given its reputation for putting clients’ interests first,” said Jeff. “I look forward to building upon Navidar’s already well-established brand.”
