Jeff Hyman founded Retrofit after he and his wife shared a life changing experience at an exclusive weight loss resort. They were assigned a team of experts who helped them change their mindset, focus on long term results, and reconstruct the way they ate and exercised. Through Retrofit, Jeff seeks to bring that same intense, successful experience to people throughout the country. Jeff is an entrepreneur at heart with a lifelong passion for creating innovative and human-powered companies. This fundamental belief in the potential of those around him led to a career in the talent management field, where he was Founder and CEO of three internet-based services companies. He served as SVP of Sales & Marketing for Ameritox, a private equity-owned healthcare services company, and before that he was the first VP of Marketing at Dyson. Jeff is an active member in Young Presidents’ Organization (YPO). He holds a BS from The Wharton School at University of Pennsylvania and an MBA from The Kellogg Graduate School of Management at Northwestern University.
