Jeff Paul

Co-founder / CEO

As Ligature’s executive and digital mastermind, Jeff spends a lot of time thinking about user experience and the value of good leadership. Colorado’s intersection of industry, innovation, and outdoor lifestyle is what originally lured him here, so we’re never surprised to see Jeff astride the Front Range or meeting a client on a Summit County chairlift. As a seasoned long-distance runner, his endurance is central to Ligature’s continued success and growth.

A life-long recreation enthusiast, Jeff is passionate about health and healthcare equity/access. (Ask him about the relationship between payers and providers in the American healthcare system, or the importance of advocating for one’s own care.) Beyond his work at Ligature, he serves as a Board Member for FRXC (Front Range Cross Country) and regularly volunteers at trail races and trail building events. He is also a co-founder of the Happy Hour Foundation, bringing Denver locals together for quarterly philanthropic happy hours to make supporting local nonprofits as simple as raising a glass.

Prior to co-founding Ligature, Jeff held UX/UI roles with several agencies, and (way back in the day) served food and drinks while developing superhuman scorekeeping abilities at the minor league baseball games where his dad was the PA announcer. He is originally from Great Falls, Montana and received a Bachelor’s in Graphic Design from Saint Mary’s University of Minnesota.
