PASSION has a New Home. Driving Inspired Lifestyles offering Garage Condominiums for Car Enthusiasts
As children, the Badger kids were exposed to art & creativity by their mom, and craftsmanship by their dad. That combination bore fruit when Jeff left his years as an executive in a logistical software company and in 1991 started a custom log & timber frame design/build and development company, Badger Brothers. Since, has gone on to another passion, cars. Combining his design, development and, building and business skills with his passion for cars, he is now developing and building Northeast Ohio's first "Country Club" for car enthusiasts and collectors, Club Motor Estates. Now, there is a place where like minded enthusiasts can get together ALL YEAR long and enjoy the passion of cars. He is taking Club Motor Estates nationwide.

Back in 2006 while developing, designing and building Homes of Natural Distinction throughout the country, I had the problem of storing my cars and finding that blend of enjoying my passion and sharing that with others. A two car, then a four car garage was not large enough, especially when one of my cars was used as the perfect spot to hide for the kids playing kick the can. After seeing others trying to solve the problem, the concept of having a campus of many like minded people has been fully developed and now ready. Club Motor Estates is so much more than just a place to store cars. That idea has come and gone, and has failed. Club Motor Estates is part Country Club, part caviar, part motor oil. It is a venue, a place to enjoy your passion of cars every day, surrounded by people who enjoy their passion of cars. To that end, we are excited to introduce Club Motor Estates, the venue for all car lovers. Golfers and boaters have had their clubs and marinas. Now, it is time for collectors of cars to have our place. So much more than just a passion, our foundational principals of delivering the highest value for our customers guides our way. We invite you to come and see for yourself. Together, our passion for cars and a sound model of success makes Club Motor Estates the place to be for Northeast Ohio. IT'S ALL ABOUT THE EXPERIENCE

This new software start-up company, designing dispatch application software/hardware solutions for truckload carriers, started with great technical expertise but little experience in business, sales or marketing systems. After hands-on interviewing customers, we developed and became the premier real-time operational dispatch system for the truckload logistic industry with sales growing to over $5 million. This new approach made it possible to become the replacement supplier for the US Army Logistic Center Worldwide (Damms-R) making it the largest software company in the industry (over $100 million).
This company was started by purchasing a division of Reliance Electric product line for the process control vibration technology industry. Sales were stagnant at 1.5MM for years. Hired as a consultant to develop a strategic plan with detailed systems and recommendations. Transformed the old analog based technology to digital technology, changed production systems, installed a management system, overhauled the distribution system and created a marketing campaign that changed the image of Vitec to the premier leader in the industry. Sales grew to over $5 million.
