Jeremy started his recruiting career in 2000 with international retail giant H&M. Based in NY, he helped open one of their first stores in the US. Jeremy worked his way up from the sales floor to management and was eventually promoted to a recruiter for the US expansion team. With this role, he traveled the US and was responsible for the recruitment and hiring for emerging markets along the East Coast and throughout the Midwest.

In 2008 Jeremy joined the Covelli Enterprises Franchise of Panera Bread as the Director of Recruiting. Covelli Enterprises is the nation’s largest franchisee of Panera Bread operating over 250 locations in 7 states and Canada employing over 25,000 people. With a focus on the Greater Tampa Bay market including the Gainesville, Ocala and The Villages area, Jeremy hired management and catering personnel for 30 locations. Additionally, he was responsible for the staffing of new bakery-cafe openings as well as filling upper management positions in their support office.

Jeremy has a true passion for recruiting. The relationships and connections that are made with each placement are what motivate Jeremy to find that perfect match for both candidate and employer.

While not at the office, Jeremy spends his time with his wife Vanessa and their family. Jeremy and Vanessa consider themselves to be food enthusiasts and enjoy seeking out the best restaurants in the area. Jeremy can also be found working out at the gym or watching the Tampa Bay Lightning.
