Jesse Stein

Founder & CEO,; YPO Americas Gateway Chairman

December 2018

Jesse Stein is a highly successful internet entrepreneur who operates from downtown Coral Gables. Formerly CEO of New York’s Soho Digital, an online marketing company which he sold in 2005, Stein went on to found Triton Web Properties and, which he operated from a Gables warehouse until it was sold in 2016. Since then he has been running Dietspotlight. com from his offices on Valencia Ave. A vendor of natural dietary supplements 

and weight loss software, Dietspotlight has gotten 120 million visits since it was founded. 


Stein is this year’s chairman of the America’s Gateway chapter of the Young President’s Organization, a society of super successful business leaders, all of whom have run a company with at least $13 million in annual revenue (or at least 50 employees) before age 45. There are 24,000 members worldwide. 


“I have been in the Gables for five years now. I love it. This is a great place to have an office. It’s as pedestrian as it gets. I love walking around, especially now with Girdalda [Plaza] finished, and the widened sidewalks on Miracle Mile,” he says. “The most humbling thing [in Internet marketing] is the SEO [Search Engine Optimization – i.e. rankings] game. Google continues to humble me, because they will make sudden algorithmic changes month by month, and you have to reverse engineer what you think it is they now like.” 

As for his YPO chapter, Stein says, “We are one of the most diverse chapters in north America, with 26 nationalities among our 75 members… My goal this year is to increase engagement among members, to make everyone feel a deep connection with the chapter.”
