Leadership - Jeffrey Wade

Jeff is a talented and accomplished executive who excels at relationship building and team management.  He has over a decade of experience producing results for high echelon clients including software companies, non-profits, and medical practices.  He is considered the “business surgeon” who analyzes unhealthy business processes and makes an endurance athlete out of it.

Jeff received his B.S. in Marketing from Southern Illinois University in 2002.  It was there that he developed his passion for helping organizations succeed and traveling the world.  He has worked in Brazil, and Mexico, and has fostered enduring relationships with organizations in China. With an overflow of international experience, Jeff has a strong understanding of various markets, both nationwide and internationally.

Jeff thrived in his career as he continued to network and grow.  After a five-year tenure in the payroll and HR industry, Jeff decided to feed his insatiable appetite for the medical industry.  Utilizing his vast knowledge acquired from years of networking, Jeff co-founded Emerge One Medical, LLC in 2014.  Emerge One Medical provides solutions to organizations with Go To Market Strategies, Compliance Regulations Management, Product Sourcing and Diagnostic Services.  Jeff understands what truly drives success.  By utilizing his collaborative and analytical skills, in four short years, Emerge One has experienced (and continues to experience) explosive sales growth.  Jeff simply listens to what customers want and moves to create a sound strategy that produces lasting results.

Jeff currently sits on the board of the Asian American Chamber of Commerce as the first Filipino-American elected.  He enjoys traveling and spending time with his wife, Anna, and his two kids, Myla and Judan.  In his free time, you will see him playing poker.  Mr. Wade enjoys traveling to Las Vegas to play in the World Series of Poker.

Our vision is to be instrumental in connecting Asian American businesses and organizations in the St. Louis region as well as positioning this region to be internationally competitive.
