WHO SAYS YOU CAN'T HAVE FUN AT WORK?!

We are a community of consultants that like to work as hard as we play. We don't just think outside of the box, we rethink the box altogether.

THE JEFFREYM STORY

Our story begins with the golden question – is there an actual JeffreyM? The answer is yes. Meet Jeffrey McCannon, whose humble beginnings in his cold garage laid the groundwork to allow us to evolve into the full-fledged staffing and consulting firm we are today. Founded in 2006, Jeff established JeffreyM Consulting after transitioning from his 13+ year corporate career at Microsoft into the world of consulting. When a few friends from the corporate world inquired about following suit, he brought them on under the umbrella of JeffreyM. These talented friends had connections to talented friends of their own, and an ever-expanding business was born. What should it be called? JeffreyM of course, a nod to his previous e-mail alias. Today, this umbrella spans across the globe, with consultants and clients located far and wide. We house offices in downtown Seattle, Bellevue, Chicago, and now internationally in London – ensuring we are always close and accessible to both our consultants and our clients, and always able to cultivate the fun and fearless culture that is JeffreyM.

 

MEET THE TEAM

We like to remind ourselves that we’re in the people business, and our people are pretty great. JeffreyM houses a diverse assortment of personalities from fitness enthusiasts and sports fanatics, to foodies and manic wanderlusts – and everything in between. We are a unique set of individuals united by passion for our clients and customers.

Jeffrey McCannon Founder & President Jeff McCannon’s consulting empire arose from humble beginnings; working from the cold garage of his eastside home, he grew what is now a full-fledged staffing and consulting firm with offices in Downtown Seattle, Bellevue, Washington. With his vast experience in sales, analytics, and channel programs, Jeff has grown his brand into an elite community of diverse consultant professionals with proven expertise and a love for the fun and fearless culture that is JeffreyM. When he isn’t busy taking over the world, Jeff spends his time with his wife and three children in addition to the occasional golf outing.
