Jeffrey Lehnen


Jeff was born and raised in Council Bluffs, Iowa where he lives today. Jeff graduated from St. Albert's Catholic High School, went on to Iowa Western Community College and graduated from Buena Vista University in Storm Lake Iowa in 1992 with a Bachelor’s Degree in Business Management/Entrepreneurship and a minor in Computer Science.   

Jeff started with Tagge-Rutherford in the spring of 2013 in our Iowa office. Jeff has over 27 years’ management/customer service experience in both retail and financial industries. Through those years he has adopted a very simple but powerful mantra – “Always give people more than what they expect to get.” Most of Jeff’s business is gained from referrals established through personal as well as professional relationships and networking opportunities outside the office.

Jeff spends much of his spare time helping coach his son Jaxson in football, baseball, basketball and soccer. Jeff is also a car buff with 4 storage cars that only get driven on nice days and on Sundays to St. Peter’s Catholic Church. Jeff is active in the community and is a member of Benevolent and Protective Order of Elks, Lodge #531.
