16 Jun Three’s Company
Ryan Lefeld: “Tic-tac-toe, three Jeffs in a row.”
If you don’t know these three Choice One musketeers, left to right, meet Jeff Puthoff, Jeff Kunk, and Jeff North. When they randomly sat together for a company meeting, Ryan Lefeld (another first name we have at least three of) noticed and pointed out this winning three-in-a-row.
So many good things come in threes—breakfast, lunch, and dinner, Goldilocks’s three bears, stooges… and our trio of Jeffs is no different. These three have been a staple of our company for almost its entirety. Indeed, Puthoff is one of the original Choice One founders (i.e. he’s old), and both Kunk and North began at Choice One shortly after its founding in 1994 (again… old). More recently, we’ve added a fourth Jeff (McMullen), and other than the fact that he’s a passionate Pittsburgh Steelers fan, he’s just as terrific as the first three Choice One Jeffs.
All joking aside (mostly because we don’t know which Jeff is the setup, the punchline, or the delivery of the joke), without our lineup of Jeffs, Choice One probably wouldn’t be the company it is today. From the traffic signals’ red, yellow, and green trifecta, to the sturdy survey tripods, we thrive on the power of “threes” in our industry, and at Choice One, the pictured Jeffs are certainly one… er… three of a kind!
