Senior Director & General Manager
Jeremy first joined Advance Partners in 2004 and took the reins as Senior Director and General Manager for the company in 2019. As the leader for Advance, Jeremy has overall P & L responsibilities for the business, which has grown tremendously since the start of his tenure as senior leader. He prides himself on the Advance Team he partners with everyday, focusing on their growth and success while empowering them to offer guidance and vision that will define the future trajectory of the company.
Jeremy’s leadership style is heavily focused on teamwork and maintaining a great company culture, both of which he is extremely proud of when reflecting on his two decades with the company.
“We are true to our company values, both those we established before joining the Paychex family in 2015, and then intertwined with the values of our incredible parent company. They fit together like a perfect puzzle; it’s those values which have driven our success and will continue to drive our success into the future”.
Jeremy talks frequently about our business being a relationship business, grounded on developing trust and partnership with our clients: “Our Team hears me frequently say that the key to building long-lasting, mutually beneficial client relationships is finding ways to make our client partnerships feel anything but transactional. That requires effort, compassion and alignment on what is important. We truly care about the businesses and people we support, from the owners of the business to their in-house staff and perhaps most important, the hundreds of thousands of temporary staffing professionals that we help in the process through our various services. Being a part of something bigger than just Advance’s success is an amazing thing that I do not take for granted and I know our great Team is like-minded.”
One of Jeremy’s proudest achievements at Advance is bringing his commitment to the Cleveland Food Bank to the company. He volunteers there as often as he can, and after sharing his passion for the organization with coworkers, others began joining him to help support Northeast Ohio’s food insecure population. Advance has always been committed to philanthropic efforts in our community, which is a further demonstration of our values.
Jeremy is a member of the Cleveland Food Bank’s Finance Committee, as well as the Cleveland chapter of Young President’s Organization (YPO). When he is not working, volunteering or playing baseball, he loves spending time with his family and supporting the Cleveland Guardians, Cavaliers, Browns, and his alma mater, the Indiana Hoosiers.
