President & Founder
Jeffrey Baum graduated from Hamline University in 1996 with a Bachelor of Arts in International Management and Russian Area Studies. Jeff started his career as a Sales Representative in 1996 and worked his way up to a Key Account Executive in 2011. He accomplished several milestones along his journey. Jeff was a Top 10 Account Manager from 1998 through 2007 in the Million Dollar Club Qualifier. He consistently placed in the top 10% for annual revenue growth 1999-2007. The one he is proud of most is when he pioneered Intertek’s Life Safety & Security Program. It now accounts for $7MM+ in revenue.
Throughout his 20-year long career, working for various labs, Jeff realized a gap between the labs and clients. 90% of the clients were not sure if their product met the requirements. This is when the thought of Testing Partners came to his mind. To assure clients that their products have gone through the necessary scrutiny to minimize or in some cases eliminate non-compliance issues, he started Testing Partners in 2012.
Jeff has over 15 years of experience in direct sales, stream sales, business development, marketing, and sales management in highly competitive segments of the testing & compliance industry. His expertise lies in GMA, Haz Loc/ATEX, Medical, Laboratory, Industrial, Consumer and any electric/electronic product.
