Chief Financial Officer / Chief Operating Officer
Jeff Burkel, Chief Financial Officer and Chief Operations Officer, is that rare breed of “numbers” guys who also loves the unpredictability of the agency business. He brings decades of experience in leading marketing strategy and operations. As a thought leader and change agent, Jeff is an expert at developing agencies and organizations, and his insights have contributed to Clean’s incredible growth in recent years.
In his current role, Jeff orchestrates daily operations, harmonizes agency capabilities to integrate all departments, supports human resources, and minimizes business growing pains. He ties the mechanics of the agency’s operation back to both their financial implications and their strategic impact. Most importantly, Jeff understands how to get an agency working more efficiently, productively, and profitably without clamping down on the creative product.
Jeff is also a leader in the community and beyond. He serves through the Holly Springs Chamber of Commerce and is a past board member for Worldwide Partners Inc. Additionally, he volunteers his time and expertise as a guest speaker at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.
