About AIS » Jeff Pieta
Jeff PietaJeff Pieta was raised in the western suburbs of Chicago and currently resides in Western Springs and the River North Neighborhood of Chicago. After graduating from Lyons Township High School in 2001, he enrolled at UIC in the college of engineering, though neither of his parents had college degrees. Around that time, a friend of his worked for a local small business that needed IT assistance. He asked Jeff for assistance, which he obliged. The business owner, impressed with Jeff's knowledge and intelligence, offered to refer Jeff to his business owner friends. From there Jeff met an accountant, who became one of Jeff's first business mentors. He then dropped out of college after three months with Sean Casey to found AIS, which has grown to a mid-sized business with two offices.
Jeff spends most of his free time with charities he is proud to support, primarily related to cancer, developmental disabilities, and helping other businesses. He serves on the board of directors for Helping Hand Center, the H Foundation, and as fundraising chair for the Rotary Club of LaGrange. He is also Chairman of the Board for the West Suburban Chamber of Commerce and Industry and is involved in the Young Leader's leadership program for the Executives' Club of Chicago. The Chamber and mentorship programs provide an opportunity to pay-it-forward as they helped to give his business life a start.
Jeff loves learning new things to stay ahead of the curve. In 2007 he became a licensed electrician in the process of learning how to rehab a house. In January 2009, Jeff and Sean launched a new, successful digital signage business to offer affordable local advertising. By December of 2010, AIS pioneered a fixed-price, automated monitoring/maintenance/troubleshooting service, branded NeD.
Jeff Pieta was recognized by Chicago Magazine as one of Chicago's Top Singles in their July 2009 issue.
