Jan Upton-Lloyd, a native Californian, joined Nancy Squires and the fledgling Squires Group in 1996 as its first employee. She was our original bookkeeper and she also joined Nancy in recruiting and account management. Jan is an avid reader who has developed a healthy global perspective. This has helped her connect with candidates and clients from all parts of the world.
Jan was in this role until her husband, Kevin, retired from the Annapolis City police force in 2003 and they moved to the mountains of western Maryland and then Pennsylvania. Since 2005, Jan has been the owner of a seasonal antique store, River’s Edge Antiques in Confluence, PA.
Jan recently rejoined the Squires Group on a part-time basis doing reference checks and helping Apurva in developing marketing collateral that gets published on our corporate website.
Jan and her husband enjoy seeking out antiques and collectibles for the store and her Etsy shop by attending auctions and estate sales.
