Meet The Team
As co-founder and CEO of Axiom Human Resource Solutions, Andrew Zelt gains great personal satisfaction by providing human capital management services that allow company leaders to focus on the main objective; directing business growth and opportunity.
Prior to starting Axiom, Andy held leadership positions in the benefits and professional employer organization industries where he gained experience in all disciplines of human resources; specializing in benefits and payroll. During these years he recognized how much time company leaders spend managing the workforce instead of focusing their efforts on executing business strategies to ensure sustainable success and profitability.
Andy now leads Axiom and a team of human capital management professionals who add value to companies across the U.S. by freeing up company executives so they can redirect their focus to attaining business objectives.
Andy earned a bachelor’s degree in economics from Purdue University’s Krannert School of Management. He is also a licensed insurance agent and is active in the community and participates in local Chambers of Commerce. In his spare time, Andy and his wife Carrie are chasing their 4-year-old son around with their two dogs. In the fall, you can find him at Ross-Ade Stadium, tailgating and rooting on his beloved Boilers.
Previously the Executive Director of YTIME: Now™, a Kronos Workforce Ready Partner, Chad Fittro brings more than 10 years of experience with our platform to lead the way as Axiom’s new Vice President of Operations.
Providing a state-of-the-art Workforce Management Suite structured around extraordinary customer service and flexibility has always been a top priority for Chad. His philosophy is one that focuses on adapting products and services to meet the needs of the user, rather than the user conforming to limitations.
Out of the office, Chad enjoys spending time with his family, traveling, and camping. And if he’s not doing those things, he’s probably in the garage building something! He likes to tinker…
