After starting his career with Big 4 firm Deloitte & Touche, Jed has served in various financial roles in companies from start-up to multi-national multi-billion-dollar companies. He has helped improve such companies as Credit Suisse, Red Hat, and Jaggaer as well as several smaller privately held companies.
He is battle-tested and not afraid of a challenge, having been involved with a company backed by a dot.com VC investor during the dot-bomb of 2000; an international bank and broker dealer during the financial crisis of 2008; and a hospitality and real estate company during the COVID shutdowns of 2020 and 2021. Each of these experiences taught him to remain calm under pressure and how to navigate potentially devastating events while remaining flexible to pivot and amend operations and strategic planning where necessary.
Jed is a Certified Public Accountant (CPA) in the state of North Carolina and a Chartered Global Management Accountant (GGMA). He obtained a Bachelor's of Science in Business Management and a Master’s of Accounting degree, both from North Carolina State University.
While Jed wrestled in college for North Carolina State University, the years sitting at a desk behind a computer have not been kind. He spends time trying to get back in shape through working out and the occasional disc golf and kayaking outings. One day he hopes to be able to once again do an unassisted pull-up or ten.
