CHIEF GROWTH OFFICER
With more than 25 years of successful CEO leadership experience across two multi-national businesses plus two entrepreneurial start-ups, Jeff Mariola has a reputation for creating cultures which consistently outscore other high-performing companies in engagement, revenue and EBITDA growth, empowerment, and leadership.
His tenure as CEO is hallmarked by his mentorship and development of his management teams. Numerous directly reporting managers have seasoned into presidential and senior executive capacities.
Jeff’s ability to inspire his management teams to stretch beyond their expectations is a testimony to his compassionate and direct management style.
Jeff believes it’s his responsibility to ensure all of his people have the opportunity to develop on both a personal and business level. In fact, it’s this philosophy that has fostered the loyalty and engagement sustaining his success. With Jeff at the reins, retention rates average 25% higher than direct competitors. This is largely due to Jeff’s commitment to creating ways for his teams to find meaning and purpose in their work.
Having recently finished leading the recapitalization of a privately-held company to private equity in 2018, Jeff has now changed gears and united with Michelle, to create Mariola Unlimited – a leadership development advisory service business focused on executive coaching, leadership, management workshops, brand marketing, and keynote speaking.

On a personal level, Jeff is an avid endurance athlete having competed in over ten marathons, four half-Ironman’s and a full-Ironman. His athleticism carries over to providing young adults the opportunity to reach beyond their own self-limiting beliefs.
