Jeff Shavitz, Salespreneur and CEO
Jeff Shavitz worked as an Investment Banker at Lehman Brothers in the Corporate Finance/Mergers & Acquisitions Group and specialized in transactions ranging from $250MM-$500MM.  With an offer in hand to attend graduate school to earn his MBA to continue his climb up the corporate ladder, Jeff consciously decided to leave this fast-paced, well-paying position to starting up a 1-person business; friends would say “what are you thinking?” His passion and purpose for creating “his life” was his driving force in determining his business future.   It was helped in no small part when out of his New York apartment while still working on Wall Street, he created “Spectoculars”, a paper folding binocular that received a NFL license in 1991 and 250,000 pairs were distributed at Super Bowl XXX.

Fast forward several years and Jeff co-founded Charge Card Systems Inc., a national credit card processing company that helps merchants with their processing requirements including the acceptance of Visa, MasterCard, American Express, and Discover.  The company grew to over 700 sales agents throughout the country with 3 regional offices.  In 2012, Jeff sold the business to Card Connect, owned by private equity firm FTV Capital which has been its largest acquisition to date.

His current venture, TrafficJamming LLC is a virtual membership group for independent business owners and entrepreneurs comprised of many different business services and products to help grow their companies.

In addition to managing his company, Jeff enjoys writing and his first book “Size Doesn’t Matter – Why Small Business is BIG Business” hit #1 on amazon in the entrepreneur and business management categories.   His other book titles are: (1) Networking – Get Connected, (2) Small Business Aha Messages and (3) The Power of Residual Income – You Can Count on It.   All of his books cover different business topics and share his “aha moments” and life lessons as described from his professional and personal journeys.

Jeff received his Bachelor of Arts degree in Economics from Tufts University and spent one semester at the London School of Economics specializing in finance.  He is very involved in many business, civic and philanthropic organizations including Young President’ Organization, Make-A-Wish and the Israeli Tennis Foundation.  He is married and has 2 daughters, 1 son and 2 dogs.   Besides family, health, and world-wide peace, his selfish goal is to play the 100 top golf courses in the USA!
