Jeff Veirling

Tailwind Nutrition
Founder & CEO
Durango, CO
Jeff is a co-founder of Tailwind Nutrition, along with his wife Jenny. Tailwind began with Jeff's head in a trashcan at the finish line of the Leadville 100. That sparked a quest that led to creating his own drink mix for endurance athletes. Soon he was meeting people in parking lots and handing off baggies of white powder. Flash forward 7 years, and Tailwind employs 21 people in Durango and Bayfield, exports to 23 countries, and recently was a Wright Award Finalist and awarded the Governor's Award for Excellence in Exporting. Jeff's background includes several startups (both for and non-profit) and software/tech. Jeff and Jenny have raised their two daughters in Durango and love mountain biking, hiking, skate skiing, and all the Southwest has to offer.
