In 2007, Jeff Spanbauer cofounded Relevate Health with the understanding that healthcare is local, intending to improve brand performance by developing a better marketing strategy. By layering in data-driven locally relevant content, precise targeting and peer-to-peer influence, Spanbauer has transformed his vision into a patented approach. Under his leadership, Relevate has experienced exponential growth, serving 100-plus of the top pharma, medical device, biotech and healthcare clients. Colleagues say Spanbauer not only creates, but also embodies an organizational culture where colleagues thrive. 

Spanbauer values sharing his marketing talents with other organizations dedicated to promoting healthy communities. He serves as a board member of Adventure Crew, which connects inner-city kids with outdoor adventures, and as a mentor with Cincinnati Youth Collaborative, an organization that empowers young people to overcome obstacles in education, career and life.
