Symmetry Software promotes Jon Bohnert to President
Symmetry Software, specialists in payroll withholding tax solutions for the internet and corporate intranets, has announced the promotion of Jon Bohnert to President from Executive Vice President. With over 13 years of experience with Symmetry Software Corporation, Jon Bohnert was the right choice for the job.
Bohnert states that when he started receiving calls from payroll industry leaders ADP and Paychex, followed by other Fortune 100 customers such as Exxon Mobil, “I knew we were onto something good.” Symmetry Software had carved a niche for itself amongst large employers and payroll providers by creating tools and products that handled complex payroll taxes in the most elegant and simple way. Large companies were attracted to Symmetry because the company offered a cheaper and more efficient solution than they could build themselves.
According to Bohnert, the most rewarding part of working at Symmetry Software goes beyond the products and sales. He describes how at Symmetry’s annual industry tradeshow, people come up to him and his employees hugging them telling them how much they love Symmetry Software and their products. “It’s very gratifying to know that we make such a difference in the day-to-day lives of our customers and users,” he exclaims.
The road to President hasn’t always been easy. Bohnert describes as a significant challenge during his time at Symmetry Software battling the perception that Symmetry is too small a company for major players to do business with. At 20 employees, Symmetry considers itself a small giant within the payroll industry. “We’ve overcome this perception. We are the best at what we do and therefore the big companies buy our products time and time again.”
