SANDUSKY – Alyssa Millis has joined The Ashley Group, stepping into the role of accounting assistant. Reporting to the controller, Millis will be responsible for general accounting duties including receivables, payables, spreadsheeting, accounting system updates, and other projects.

Millis joined The Ashley Group from her most recent position at Payne Nickles & Co., where she learned essential skills in accounting including bookkeeping, tax and payroll tasks and gained experience across multiple accounting systems and programs. Millis attended Tiffin University where she earned her bachelor’s and graduated from Ohio Northern University with her master’s in accounting.

“I was attracted to The Ashley Group because of their reputation and the warmth of the employees I met,” said Millis. “I am especially thrilled to be working with Kim Hiemstra, TAG’s controller. I’m focused on assisting her with her daily workload while taking on additional accounting projects to further the goals of The Ashley Group.”

“Our Agency Support Team becomes ever more important to the growth of The Ashley Group as we have added new territories, new client groups, and new services to our arsenal,” said Tim Paradiso, president of The Ashley Group. “Without support from departments like accounting, marketing and administrative roles, our core business team members would lose focus on the most important aspects of our work: the clients.”

The Ashley Group was founded in 2002 to provide local businesses with strategic solutions for their employee benefits. With over 30 team members, The Ashley Group educates employers and their employees on how to get the most value from their benefits package, performs in-depth financial analysis for long-term cost-saving strategies, and advises on compliance and regulations relating to health insurance, ancillary benefits, and retirement services. The Ashley Group has offices in Sandusky, Fremont, Maumee and Medina and is actively seeking new talent to support aggressive growth goals.
