How Jeffrey is building a better working world

“In my daily work with clients, I am focused on finding new ways to help private equity investment make a positive and lasting impact on society as a whole, specifically in helping to improve the lives of professionals, retirees and communities. I view private equity as a form of positive equity.

Outside of my role with EY, I am an active member of the Dean’s advisory board of the Frank G. Zarb School of Business at Hofstra University. It is important to give back and to develop and guide the future leaders of our profession.”
