JUNIOR EXECUTIVES

Roger Yamanaka

PT, ATC, CSCS Owner | Rehab2Fitness

“Jeff Balash is relentless in his dedication and commitment to improving all aspects of his life. As a brain-based practitioner I work with a variety of clients from high-level business executives to professional athletes helping to optimize their physical and cognitive performance. Jeff’s work ethic, focus, and grit is unmatched across my client portfolio in over 15+ years of working together. He consistently shows up twice a week without fail and brings 110% to each and every session. His energy level and fitness are terrific and better than many of my clients who are decades younger than he is.”

“Jeff has an unusual blend of experience, creative thinking, and tenacity. He appreciates how your problems fit into a larger narrative and he easily combines insights from disparate industries to develop a variety of potential solutions to new and different situations. He’s also quick to admit if he’s not the right person to answer the question at hand. However, he likely he can point you in the right direction if that’s the case since he knows virtually everyone.”

Jordan Blashek

Eddy Oser / Eddy Undertow 

Composer/Musician/Performer

“Jeff is a great friend and a great leader. He has a wide-ranging intellect and the ability to connect with people from all walks of life. This special ability to connect with people appears to come from two main sources: one is that he is driven by a genuine curiosity about the world writ large and about individual people that is undimmed by his broad experience. The second, which is related, is that he really takes the time to listen to people and genuinely understand them in a way that few other people do. I can’t recommend him enough.”

Scott Layne

Founder of Azimuth Trading: algorithmic trading

“Jeff is especially animated by new and essential ideas and trends, whether in business, current events, or culture. His very intentional and proactive approach to business and life promote his success and ability to be a productive resource and thought partner. He is a synthesizer of ideas and information and a facilitator of other people’s potential. He is affable, gets a quick read on people, and maintains an extensive network that he uses and shares constructively. He has provided discerning and critical feedback and advice that I have found very helpful.”
