March’s Featured Entrepreneur

March's Featured Entrepreneur, Jeff Wach.

Jeff Wach
EGW Associates
CEL Core 2010 graduate, current Class Connections member

Founded in 1969 by Jeff’s father, Eugene G. Wach (Core '88), EGW Associates Inc. started as a technical temporary employment agency providing engineers, designers, and draftsmen to WNY manufacturing and engineering firms. Over the years, Gene’s wife, Nancy, and their four sons joined the family business as it grew and evolved to meet their clients’ changing employment needs. Jeff joined the firm in 1996 and became president in 2012. Today, EGW continues to innovate with custom tailored solutions including employment outsourcing and hourly recruiting.

Jeff is a CEL Core grad, an active Class Connections member, a frequent mentor and reactor in the Core program, and serves on the CEL Alumni Association Board. We asked Jeff about his entrepreneurial journey and to share any advice for budding entrepreneurs.
