Jeff Turczyn, Regional SBDC Director

Originally from Michigan with a B.S. in Civil Engineering from Michigan Technological University, Jeff has been a resident of Bozeman for the past 27 years.  He and his wife, Suzie, have raised three boys in Bozeman whose ages are now 20, 23 and 27.  Jeff spent 21 of his 27 years in Bozeman as the owner and manager of Lone Mountain Gymnastics and Swim School orchestrating a major expansion of the business in 2006 with accolades from Prospera Business Network as Entrepreneur of The Year in 2008.  Lone Mountain’s expansion included renovating an old steel warehouse on the corner of Rouse and Oak which made them the anchor business for what is now known as Bozeman’s Cannery District development.  Lone Mountain’s expansion included the addition of a warm water instructional swimming pool and swim program as well as an academic pre-school.  After selling his business in 2017 Jeff is now excited to be joining the Prospera Business Network utilizing his skills and knowledge to assist the developing small business community in Gallatin and Park counties.  Although extremely busy, Jeff and his family have also managed to take full advantage of Montana’s outdoor recreational activities including hiking, mountain biking, skiing/snowboarding and boating.
