Stratus HR Welcomes Clay Kelley as Chief Revenue Officer

After working with Stratus HR as a "Fractional CRO" for over 3 years, Clay Kelley is now the Chief Revenue Officer (CRO) for Stratus HR.



Sandy, Utah - Stratus HR is excited to announce the hiring of PEO (Professional Employer Organization) industry sales expert Clay Kelley as their Chief Revenue Officer. Clay has a solid reputation for advancing the PEO industry nationwide by teaching the value of HR outsourcing and has been heavily involved in NAPEO for many years.

"For over three years now, Clay has been a ‘fractional’ Chief Revenue Officer for Stratus HR,” said John Farnsworth, CEO of Stratus HR. “I’m thrilled that he has now dropped the ‘fractional’ piece of that title. Having him on board full-time as our Chief Revenue Officer creates a strategic position for Stratus HR to achieve unparalleled new heights.” 

With more than 39 years of industry experience, Clay has helped advance and strengthen the PEO industry through his Clay Kelley HR Outsourcing Sales University (“The U”) and his Training Camp. “Stratus HR is fully supportive of Clay’s ongoing commitments to both Stratus HR and the broader community, recognizing that his involvement is invaluable to the PEO industry,” explained Farnsworth. “His expertise and continued contributions will shape our success while supporting the industry’s growth as a whole, as we continue to focus on selling the value of PEO."
