Jeff Mangan

One of Jeff’s core beliefs is that an opportunity to learn, to mentor, to share experiences should be readily available & accessible… to everyone. Leadership and ethics resources, however, are too often out of reach. His goal is to change that narrative. Jeff has spent 35+ years successfully navigating roles in the private & public sectors. Having led several successful businesses and serving when given the opportunity in both elected and appointed public service roles, Jeff served as Montana's 12th Commissioner of Political Practices. Good governance includes approachable leadership, a commitment to core values & beliefs, and the ability to communicate these ideals. Born & raised in Montana, Jeff lives in Craig with his wife, Lisa.
