Since graduating from NUIG in 1998 and qualifying as a CIMA management accountant in 2000, Jeffrey has built up a wealth of experience in the food and beverage industry over the last 20 years. His first foray into the industry was with Diageo where he worked for six years in various functions within the group covering commercial finance, financial accounting and manufacturing. Jeffrey subsequently moved into a role with H&K International which saw him focusing on operations, cost accounting and transfer pricing during his four year tenure.
Jeffrey’s strong interest in the Food & Beverage Industry, along with consumer brands, led him to Java Republic in 2008. Initially he had responsibility over the finance function and his role also saw him supporting and managing various aspects of the business through its growth. More recently, Jeffrey took on responsibility for all aspects of operations such as procurement, logistics, production, service, quality and Java Republic’s two cafés, before proudly taking on the role of Managing Director in early 2023.
