Jeff Samay

Founder & CEO

As Founder and CEO of Skill Developers LLC, Jeff Samay is responsible for guiding all facets of the business and helping clients meet their skill development goals. Jeff has over 23 years of learning & development and corporate training experience with expertise in areas of establishing long term relationships, providing high quality customer service, and driving client growth. Because investing in employees and their skill development is critical to the success of all businesses, Jeff has guided the strategic and tactical execution of training programs within various small, medium, and large organizations with industry expertise in areas such as technology, mortgage, banks, higher education, aerospace, defense, information security, and government organizations; and within training categories such as Leadership Training, Technology Training, Microsoft Office Training, and more.

Caring about others and helping people is at the core of who Jeff is; which is why Skill Developers and its company culture thrives at helping individuals, teams, organizations, and those they serve advance their lives and careers. For example, he and Skill Developers started and continues to offer a 100% free training program during the pandemic where anyone can attend to learn tips & tricks, a new skill set, prepare for a certification, prepare for a new job, or expand their knowledge to get things done with high levels of efficiency (such as Free Microsoft Office products training — Excel, Powerpoint, Teams, Word, OneNote, etc).

Skill Developers exudes a client-centric, family first, work-hard-while-having-fun-doing-it culture… because life is way too short not to enjoy every day, and improve while smiling along the way.
Jeff gains stability and inspiration from his wife and 2 daughters. In his spare time, he enjoys biking, sports, and cheering on all Pittsburgh sports!
