Meet the Owner

Jamie Tedesco, founder, has a strong background in the wood business with several family members owning logging companies in the Pacific Northwest. He learned about natural resource management as a youth being mentored by family members in the industry and upon moving to New Mexico in 2001 he fell in love with the outdoors in the southwest. After completing a Business administration degree from Vanguard University, Jamie rounded out his knowledge with coursework in management, business practices, fiscal controls, entrepreneurship, marketing and the overall administration required to have a positive impact in the field and in the office.

Jamie has a strong network of partners he has built up over the last several decades that allows him to facilitate contract or grant based projects of all kinds. Jamie owned and operated a green Recycling company in Northern New Mexico that he doubled in size and was eventually sold. This venture helped him see the importance of "Full Circle Implementation" when dealing with Natural Resources management. Tedesco likes to harness innovation and new ideas for maximum efficiency in all his endeavors. This is evidenced in another current company he owns and actively manages known as ZAP Marketing Partners, a full service advertising agency, marketing and public relations firm. This broad based knowledge and contact base enables Wood Sharks, LLC to deliver at all levels of a project and ensures goal completion.

Wood Sharks, LLC and ZAP Marketing Partners work closely together to form a strong and effective partnership with diverse capabilities. Tedesco is looking at new ways to use recycled materials and wood fuels harvested from contract or grant jobs that include home furnishing and fixture applications. Tedesco has also participated as an Interim regional Director for the NM Green Chamber of Commerce and has served as a panelist and contributor for local Senator Martin Heinrich in regards to sustainable and renewable energies. Tedesco spearheaded the local effort in Taos County to engage the community regarding the creation of the Rio Grande Del Norte National Monument and is also an active member of the Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation.
