Jeff Kluge

Principal | Board of director

Jeff Kluge is an experienced consultant and broker. He grew up in Kansas City, Missouri, but after visiting Salt Lake City during the 2002 Olympics he was so charmed by Utah he decided to move here permanently. 

Jeff believes in kindness amid ambition and that there is no substitute for hard work and persistence.

“There will always be smarter people in our world, but I will work harder than they will,” he says. “How you take care of employees when they encounter major life challenges—as they have taken care of you—is more important than any business accomplishment an individual could ever receive.”

When he’s not running around town attending meetings you can find Capitan Jeff on his sailboat, in the mountains skiing or biking, or traveling and spending time with his wife, and two children.

"I have been working with Jeff Kluge and his team for several years now. I wish I had found GBS earlier on in my career because I would have switched our company over to their service to save me money and headaches! The method in which Jeff and his team work with us resembles a partnership rather than a client. They genuinely care about our employees and work together with us each year to come up with the best possible health and wellness solutions. "
