BUSINESS

CHIEF EXECUTIVE OFFICER

DIBS

As CEO and Co-Founder of DIBS, Jeff began working on a new concept in color cosmetics in 2020 with Austin-based lifestyle authority Courtney Shields. The premise: makeup that is mistake-proof, effortless and accessible to women across America who don’t relate to clinical minimalism or have the time for a twenty-step YouTube routine.

DIBS launched in September 2021 with one of the highest reported velocities for a new makeup brand. In its first week, it sold out five of nine products to tens of thousands of customers in all 50 states (and US territories) and earned features in Vogue, Glamour, Byrdie and NewBeauty.
