Director-Franchise Business Development and Operations.

Jeff LaFave began his career with Bio Dynamics selling blood glucose meters and strips to hospital nurse educators. There he became the number one sales person in the country and was promoted to regional manager. Bio Dynamics was purchased by Boehringer Mannheim which was then purchased by Roche Diagnostics in 2007.

Jeff then joined Idexx Laboratories as a regional manager orchestrating a team of 10 diagnostic sales specialists selling chemistry and hematology systems to Veterinarians. He quickly had the leading region in the company, achieving sales of $3.7 million in overall revenue.

As a successful regional VP of sales with KCI, Jeff generated revenue growth from $2 million to $4.5 million in one year. He was then recruited to serve as a national sales manager with Synermed Diagnostics where he directed the recruiting, onboarding, and development of a professional sales staff of 12 members. He also has a successful business development background with Digene Corporation and Cepheid selling state-of-the-art molecular diagnostic solutions for many of the country's infectious diseases, including HPV, MRSA, and Norovirus.

Most recently, Jeff was an Area Director for Zoetis leading the Diagnostic Division product group. He was a President Circle winner with his region in 2015, 2016, and 2018.

Jeff is excited to join the team at VetCheck Urgent Care. The model is a one that can be duplicated very successfully across the country in every market. With so few choices in franchising within the veterinary space, the time is right to bring the VetCheck Urgent Care to the market and offer those veterinarians looking to move into their own practices or expand an existing hospital an option for a turnkey solution.
