Joe Yelenic


President and Chief Operating Officer


What do you do at Headway?  

As Headway’s President, I provide strategic financial and operational leadership for the Company, managing a team of senior executives in the provision of human capital solutions that promote innovation, drive efficiencies, and exceed client expectations. I am a licensed CPA with over thirty-five years of financial management experience, primarily in HR outsourcing and temporary staffing industries.  


What do you like most about working at Headway? 

Headway to me means family. We’ve strived, from its inception, to foster an environment of cooperation, determination, leadership, and opportunity to keep Headway at the forefront of the human capital industry. We encourage a culture that allows individuals to ask questions and challenge the status quo to bring new ideas to the table. When I look around, I see a team that treats each other like family and with respect. Many members of the team have been with the Company for more than 10 years and have become the nucleus of this family-like culture.  Depending on the season, you’ll find us working hard to meet client deadlines or enjoying a beautiful North Carolina day with a picnic and catered food truck lunch in our company parking lot. Our people will always be the driving factor into anything we do.  


What do you like to do for fun outside of work? 

Outside of work I enjoy spending time with my family.
