Jeff has been active in Financial Reporting, Consolidation and Corporate Performance Management since 2000.
After his studies, he joined the software firm Cartesis (now known as SAP BFC, after the take over first by Business Objects, then SAP) where he was responsible for custom development with Transact-SQL for SQL Server and PL/SQL for Oracle for a number of the firm's implementations in North America. In 2003, Jeff along with his wife, decided to relocate to Europe where he had the opportunity to work on several software implementations related to IFRS conversion and statutory consolidation with SAP BFC in the UK and Belgium.
In February 2009, Jeff decided to take up a new challenge as an end user at the pharmaceutical company UCB in Brussels, where he was a part of the group's consolidation and reporting team, which allowed him to gain further understanding of financial reporting concepts. He joined element61 in June 2012. Jeff's main focus is on Corporate Performance Management. His background with software implementations in the United States, the UK and continental Europe, plus his experience as an end user allows him to add value in financial reporting projects.
