Meet the Team

Nikki Gniadek

April 12th, 2007 – March 29th, 2024


 “Nikki” has been the face of Jaguar Business Solutions (literally, take a closer look at our logo!) and has served as the right-hand feline to our founder and CEO, since Jaguar’s official incorporation in 2017. 

On March 29th, 2024, we had to say goodbye to our fabulous feline friend. Although Nikki is no longer with us physically—or crashing Zoom calls—he remains with us in spirit. 

Though Nikki lacked the basic project management skills, he was known for his professional attire and direct communication skills. He was particularly known for his prominent meows, and was always the first to interrupt any Zoom meeting to alert the team (and Mom) when it was lunchtime.

Best friend and loyal confidant to our CEO, Nikki was loved and will be missed by all.

Jaguar Business Solutions initially launched in January 2011 under the DBA, J.H. Language Solutions, which provided content writing, copy editing, and proofreading services.

In May 2017, Julie left the “corporate” world to focus on her own business full time, growing and expanding the business into what it is today. Jaguar Business Solutions offers project management support, process improvement and optimization, business analysis, and business coaching and mentoring services to entrepreneurs, leaders, and small businesses spanning across the for-profit and nonprofit sectors.

She has worked with both for-profit and non-profit entities, and even helped several organizations establish PMOs and developed a successful project management mentoring program. 

In her “free” time, Julie is a semi-professional aerial gymnast, dancer, competitor, performer, and choreographer. She enjoys reading, running, kayaking, hiking New Hampshire’s beautiful White Mountains. She is also a published author, diehard power sports enthusiast, and a cat mom.
