About

Jeremy Boilek is a Principal at Summit Advisory Team with almost 20 years of retail and e-commerce experience.

Some areas of focus include Product Management, Project Management and implementation, omnichannel, order management, mobile POS, e-commerce, customer service, associate support, and retail operations, sales, and leadership.

Jeremy takes a customer-first approach with high attention to detail while also keeping the overall objective and experience front and center. He has a keen eye for areas of opportunity and readily identifies, addresses, and proposes creative solutions to process, system, and service issues.

Personally, Jeremy enjoys a wide range of activities such as improvisational comedy, boxing, music, pottery, and (admittedly, intermediate-level) cooking.
