Fresh Group Atlantic

Parent Company of Fresh Developments Atlantic


Graduating from Saint Mary’s University, B. Comm, Class of ’92, entering his family’s business, Silver’s Agencies Limited as the fourth generation of Marine and Cargo Surveyors.

Silver’s Agencies Limited via its ancestor company, Silver’s Limited, is currently the oldest independent Marine Surveying Company in the world.

On completion of University, Jeff began to grow the historic company in new, innovative directions within the International Maritime Industry, expanding product lines, efficiencies and international business contacts to gain a 90% local market share and a 20% increase in Traditional Revenues within 5 years of entering the company, a 100% increase in revenues within 10 years, and reaching a 200% increase in traditional line revenues by year 12.

After maximizing the market penetration and scope of services for the now 110-Year-old company in 2007, Jeff began to expand the business into property investment via Silver’s Investments Limited (est. 1946) and began acquiring commercial and residential rental properties.

Eventually, Jeff brought Fresh Group Atlantic within the Holdings of Silver’s Investments in the Autumn of 2008, going on to establish a Mortgage Brokerage, a Real Estate Brokerage and Fresh Developments Atlantic all under Fresh Group.

Partnering with David Johnston in early 2009, the Mortgage and Real Estate divisions were subsequently divested from the Fresh Group Portfolio, profitably, in 2010. This gave Jeff and Dave the ability to place a refined focus on Fresh Developments Atlantic as they identified it as representing the most significant growth opportunities of all their Holdings.

To date, Fresh Developments has been experiencing an average 100% year-to-year growth rate since inception; with the 2012 projection to be a 500% growth over 2011.

Jeff has now conducted business throughout Europe, North America, Central America and South America; he personally has extensive Marine, Transportation, Insurance and Hospitality Industry contacts worldwide and remains fully engaged and active in the day-to-day operations at Silver’s Agencies.

Through his Maritime Industry Network, Jeff has correspondents at every Marine Port in the World, and can put “boots on the ground” globally within hours.
