Meet a board member! Jeffrey Bischoff:

Jeffrey Bischoff, Vice President. Jeff is the owner of Old Greenwich Consultants, a financial services recruiting firm. A graduate of Villanova University (BA, English), Jeff was head of recruiting for the UBS Private Bank after serving as the National Recruiting Officer for Citigroup’s private wealth management division, Smith Barney.
A published author himself, Jeff was moved by the works of Eric Sloane when he was given Eric Sloane’s Diary of An Early American Boy on a trip to Old Sturbridge Village in 1972. Sloane’s stories of early American settlers and their “Yankee ingenuity” inspired him to take up many hobbies that are still drivers in his pursuit of happiness: organic gardening, reading about and exploring stone walls, barns, farms, and American history. Jeff resides in Old Greenwich with his wife and two children.
