Leadership & Business Development Team
“Leadership is the capacity to translate vision into reality.”
At Safeguard by Innovative, our leadership team is proactively involved in all aspects of our business. The leadership team leads by example, providing the vision, the guidance, and the support that empower each member of the team to make decisions that not only support our organizational goals but also support our customer’s goals.
President & Co-Owner
Drew started his career with our company as a Production Coordinator in 2008. In this customer service and support role, Drew was responsible for driving all aspects of his customers’ projects: from quoting to obtaining ink and paper samples, from researching promo items to delivering kitted items, from managing press checks to reviewing personalization sign-offs. Working closely with our customers, our production facilities, and our supplier partners, Drew understood how crucial the details are in successfully delivering each project.
In 2015, Drew was promoted to Production Team Leader. In this role, Drew was instrumental in helping to cultivate and nurture the culture of Safeguard by Innovative: the culture of focusing on our customers while empowering team members. Under his leadership, both his team and the company grew. In 2017, a new opportunity presented itself – the opportunity to purchase the company for which he had worked for 9 years. The company, owned by Safeguard Business Systems – Deluxe Corporation, was going to be sold and operated as part of the Safeguard franchise network. So, in June 2017, Drew and colleague Jordan Hartline purchased the business and Drew took on another new role, the role of President of Safeguard by Innovative.
Today, as President of Safeguard by Innovative, Drew remains as customer-focused as he was when he began his career with the organization. Drew is also dedicated to and supportive of his employees. He works closely with his team, ensuring that best-in-class solutions are provided to our customers; however, he never loses sight of what makes us special, our culture of team member empowerment and our expertise that is second to none.
Drew and his wife have two active children. In his spare time, Drew enjoys golfing and cooking. His favorite pastimes, though, are attending his children’s sporting events, curling up on the sofa with his family for movie night, and cooking dinner together with his wife and kids.
CEO & Co-Owner
Jordan began his career with our company in 2003, when he graduated from Ursinus College with a degree in Business Administration – Accounting and Finance. Jordan’s original position was that of fulfillment manager. In this role, his responsibilities included hiring and developing fulfillment personnel, estimating project costs, building project timelines, establishing and documenting best practices to streamline workflows, as well as developing quality control processes.
After several years of successfully building and leading the fulfillment department, Jordan received several promotions. The first promotion was to the position of Accounting Assistant where his responsibilities included reviewing and preparing the accounts receivable and accounts payable documents and having corresponding daily interactions with customers, vendors, and colleagues. Next, Jordan was promoted to the position of Finance Manager, with a promotion to Operations Manager following shortly thereafter. In these positions, Jordan expanded his skills outside the normal finance and accounting roles to include proposal writing, business development, and management of IT operations.
Then, in 2017 a new opportunity presented itself – the opportunity to purchase the company for which he had worked for 14 years. The company, owned by Safeguard Business Systems – Deluxe Corporation, was going to be sold and operated as part of the Safeguard franchise network. So, in June 2017, Jordan and colleague Drew Galvin purchased the business and Jordan took on yet another new role, the role of Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Safeguard by Innovative.
Today, along with his duties as CEO, Jordan oversees the operations side of the business, including the accounting, IT, and warehouse functions. Jordan enjoys getting involved in projects and working with his team to develop unique solutions that resolve customer’s pain points.
Jordan is married to his high school sweetheart. They have three children and a dog. In his free time, Jordan loves coaching his children’s baseball team and spending time with his family.
