Growing up in a small farm town in Wisconsin, Jake learned the value of a hard day’s work at a young age by completing chores like picking rocks from fields and driving tractors. Looking to expand his horizons, he left Wisconsin to attend the business school at Miami University (the one in Ohio).

Looking to expand his horizons, he left Wisconsin to attend the business school at Miami University (the one in Ohio).  On campus, he became fascinated with the world of business and the increasingly important role of big data and technology in driving success. 
 
After graduating with a degree in Finance and a minor in Statistics, Jake traded the cold of the Midwest for the sunshine state and took his first job in the Logistics industry in Orlando. Over the next few years he held multiple positions, using his analytical and financial acumen to improve processes and expand data visibility. This included systems integration work to increase visibility and communication between the dock, the boardroom, and everywhere in between.
 
Joining Christie Lites in the summer of 2017, Jake’s goal is to establish a best-in-class transportation management system and KPIs. Jake currently lives in downtown Orlando and enjoys his free time cheering for the Green Bay Packers, attending shows, and spending time outdoors.
