Founder, President, and CEO
Brian Fayak founded Nextep with the excitement only a true entrepreneur can possess. Migrating from the safety of a publicly-traded company to a one-man operation — sales, owner, and whole-enchilada organizational leadership.
Since those modest beginnings, Nextep has grown into the industry’s premier professional employer organization, with clients coast-to-coast. And the reason is no secret: Nextep knows how to grow business.
Chief Operating Officer
Melissa oversees all human resources, benefits, and payroll operations and directs client relations. Most importantly, she is the unofficial keeper of Nextep’s culture, making this a great place to work and giving that same respect and care to our clients and their employees.
Chief of Sales & Marketing
Adam oversees Nextep’s sales and marketing operations. In his role, he determines goals, finds innovative ways to use technology to bring solutions to clients, and oversees the branding initiatives. At the core of all of this work, his main commitment is to making life easier for people.
Payroll Team Lead
Since joining Nextep in 2012, Nichelle has been a huge source of knowledge for the payroll team. Because laughter is the best stress reliever, she joins in on the jokes even when deadlines are tight.
