Why Start SSG?

In late 2002, Jeremy decided to move from Baltimore back to his hometown of Buffalo as his mother’s health was in question.  He wanted to spend as much time as he could with his mother but also needed some kind of income, so he decided to start his own recruiting firm right from his parent’s house.  This allowed Jeremy to be by his mother’s side and also make ends meet.  He was tenacious and made some headway while also learning from mistakes.

Jeremy eventually moved his business to Charlotte, NC.  He kept the business small for a few years before deciding to invest in growth.  He went from wanting to see himself succeed to having the desire to help others reach their goals and today SSG employs over 60 people across 3 offices.

Favorite Thing About Headhunting: 

Jeremy loves being the go-to resource for executives as they consider how to hire great talent. He knows how hard it is to find great talent and he feels rewarded when he and his team can be the solution. Jeremy also enjoys the special bond he has developed with his core team of leaders and recruiters over the last 7+ years. Jeremy has a great vision for where he wants to take the firm and has proven that nothing will hold SSG back.
