Jordan Demetris

In what can best be explained as a complex setup, he is also an employee of The Chestnut Hill Local doing a very similar job. He is responsible for financial reports and maintaining proper non-profit regulation standards. He coordinates our relationships with payroll and benefit vendors and keeps our employee files in order. He also produces files needed for our annual audit and helps organize this for the auditing team.

Jordan lives in Northwest Bucks County. Among his hobbies are following politics and playing in a band.
