Hi, I’m Jeff Hilimire. Father of five, CEO of Dragon Army, author of The 5-Day Turnaround and The Crisis Turnaround, co-founder and Board Chair of 48in48 and Ripples of Hope.

My purpose is to have an out-sized, positive impact on the world. Reach out if you want to help me with that!

How to find me:

My two books, The 5-Day Turnaround and The Crisis Turnround, were written to help leaders embrace the habits of the world's most successful startup CEOs, and to learn to lead through a crisis, respectively. Whether you're a team lead at a non-startup, the CEO of a small company, or anywhere in between, these books will help you become the leader you always wanted to be!
