Jeff Mariola

About

With more than 25 years of successful CEO leadership experience across two multi-national businesses plus two entrepreneurial start-ups, Jeff Mariola has a reputation for creating cultures which consistently outscore other high-performing companies in engagement, growth, empowerment, and leadership.

His tenure as CEO is hallmarked by his mentorship and development of his management teams. Numerous directly reporting managers have seasoned into presidential and senior executive capacities.

Jeff’s ability to inspire his management teams to stretch beyond their expectations is a testimony to his compassionate, direct management style.

Jeff believes it’s his responsibility to ensure all of his people have the opportunity to develop on both a personal and business level. In fact, it’s this philosophy that has fostered the loyalty and engagement sustaining his success. With Jeff at the reins, retention rates average 25% higher than with direct competitors. This is largely due to Jeff’s commitment to creating ways for his teams to find meaning and purpose in their work.

Having recently finished leading the recapitalization of a Brilliant Staffing, LLC to private equity in 2018, Jeff has now changed gears and united with his wife, Michelle, to create Mariola Unlimited – a leadership development advisory service business focused on executive coaching, leadership, management workshops, brand marketing, and keynote speaking.

Jeff is certified by Multi-Health Systems in the use of the EQi 2.0 Assessment & EQ 360 Leadership Assessment tools, as well as Stephen R. Covey’s, The Five Choices. He has also successfully completed the Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) Course. Most recently he became a certified partner in The Predictive Index.

On a personal level, Jeff is committed to inspiring young adults to reach beyond their own self- limiting beliefs. Jeff is an active speaker and workshop facilitator for non-profit organizations such as Family-Centered Educational Agency, St. Jude Leadership Society, and the Samella Hope Center.
