Jeff Randolph

(International man of mystery.)

When I grow up I want to be:

Entertained

The last great book I read:

The Food Lab by Kenji Lopez-Alt, and On Food and Cooking by Harold McGee. I want my food science 24-7.

Favorite food:

I have a deep weakness for tacos and pizza. And Long Island Tea. That last one is genetic. The other two… not so much.

Significant people:

Susan, Kerstin, and an English Bulldog named Pippa.

Favorite movie:

I could pick just one if The Big Lebowski and The Shining had a baby.

Something unique:

There’s not much unique — I’m exactly like every other former professional juggler who later coached college soccer in between snowboarding, scuba diving, golf, and extreme running adventures while giving brewery tours and teaching master’s level marketing courses.

Bio:

Jeff has held strategic marketing positions in both large and small advertising agencies, with clients ranging from restaurants and entrepreneurial ventures to multi-national telecom and regional banks. His most recent positions saw him take the helm of global marketing efforts as the Chief Marketing Officer for professional association ARMA International, and national brand marketing as the CMO for Camp Fire. Working with these nonprofit organizations let him showcase his talent for doing outstanding work and award-winning campaigns with few resources.

He earned his marketing-focused MBA at Avila University in Kansas City and continues to teach marketing at the graduate level as an adjunct professor. In his free time, he serves as President of the award-winning Kansas City chapter of the American Marketing Association, where they frequently (and inadvisably) give him a microphone.
