Jeff Brownlee

There are two types of people, those who run toward a crisis and those who flee. Jeff Brownlee is known in Lansing for his ability to calmly assess and quickly extinguish the fires of difficult situations. He breaks down formidable problems into manageable objectives with actionable strategies to achieve success.

For organizations desiring to offer their products and services to a public entity, the procurement process often resembles a towering inferno! With 15 years of contracts and procurement experience—serving as the State’s chief procurement officer for 6 years before joining PAA—Jeff is an asset for any business wishing to begin, expand, strengthen, or repair a supplier relationship within the public sector.

Jeff lives the concept of “collaborating across the aisle” every day. As someone with Green and White running through his veins, he married Beth, a card-carrying member of the Maize and Blue. Both are natives of the Flint area and now live in Dewitt with their two beautiful daughters, two sly cats, and a lazy dog.
