Jeff White

Jeff moved to Eureka from Pittsburg, CA in 1977.  After graduating from Eureka High School, Jeff chose experiential-learning over college, working for a variety of natural resource companies, including several local timber companies and an oil exploration company, offering him the opportunity to travel throughout the western US. This is where he first discovered his aptitude for electronics.

At 25 he returned to Eureka to be with family and decided on a career in sales.

Jeff began working for Coastal Business Systems in our Eureka location in 1987, selling copiers back in the day when they still had moving tops.  As technology advanced, so did Jeff’s skill set and he became our first IT technician. He has worked at all three of our locations, but permanently moved his family back to Eureka to raise his son Matthew.  In 2000 Jeff started our Document Management Division which he is still managing today.  Having a strong background in both sales and service Jeff was promoted to Service manager in 2010.

Jeff lives in Eureka with his partner Lisa and step children Jack & Morgan.  He is an active member of Six Rivers Masonic Lodge, having served three times as Master.  He enjoys improving his golf game, shooting trap, and is looking forward to the arrival of his first grandchild.
