Founder & CEO

Jeff holds a Master’s Degree in Administration, a Baccalaureate in Social Sciences, Diploma in Business Administration and a BC Insurance License.

After working 10 years combined in three different Universities as a leading edge community and business development leader, Jeff's experience as an entrepreneur culminated in 2003 with the initial structuring of the Thrifty Foods buy-out and succession plan. It was the groundwork to one of the most successful business transactions on Vancouver Island. Subsequently, he and his business partner led to rapidly grow and sell a manufacturing plant with a chain of five retail outlets, a packaging distribution company, seafood trading company, and a produce import business. This provided a wealth of business acumen along with the knowledge of Government technology tax credits, grant, banking, and investment programs. Ensuing, he has been involved with the restructuring of several businesses, personal estates and has assisted other prominent business leaders including bringing companies out of the verge of bankruptcy to profitability and eminent sale. 

The SDI founders invest in now over 30 start-ups and great business opportunities and have  vast experience working with hundreds of CEO's and entrepreneurs learning best practices. Jeff started his own software company that managed to secure 7 different government programs before exiting. 

He has acquired a successful real estate portfolio with a keen eye on self-managing great real estate acquisitions.
