Javier Ramirez

CFO
Chicago, Florida, Michigan, Washington, D.C.

As chief financial officer of Access Point, I am responsible for the overall financial performance of the PEO, Staffing, Recruiting, and Healthcare IT divisions.  At the same time, I am in charge of providing leadership, guidance, and measurement to the accounting, tax, treasury, and other corporate functional teams such as sales, IT, and operations by focusing on Access Point’s core values and its CARE initiative.

I have been fortunate to acquire finance and accounting experiences from diverse industries ranging from banking, manufacturing, technology, and professional services for the last 15 years which have allowed me to assist management teams with unique and valuable strategic decisions.  A couple of my most memorable experiences prior to the PEO industry were having the opportunity of being the head of operational finance, planning, and analysis for Yahoo! and being the regional CFO for BlueStar (a technology wholesaler) which became the number one Motorola and Zebra distributor for at least 3 consecutive years.

In terms of the PEO industry, I was the manager for finance, planning, and analysis at AlphaStaff helping the company to become a top five industry leader.  Then, I served as head of Finance and Operations at EngagePEO while it was the fastest growing PEO in the US.  Later, I was recruited by CoAdvantage to be its Vice President of Finance, Planning, and Analysis.

When I am not working, I love to spend quality time with my wife, Cristina, and my sons, Elijah and Ethan. I enjoy traveling, exploring new places in the city, building with legos, and going to church.
