Strategic Financial Solutions is bringing 1,500 jobs to WNY

BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) – Strategic Financial Solutions is coming to Western New York and bringing 1,500 client servicing and sales consultant positions.

Strategic Financial Solutions made the announcement Wednesday afternoon, along with Empire State Development. The 60,000 sq. ft. contact center will be located in Amherst International Park on Wehrle Drive near Youngs Road.

Strategic Financial Solutions is a New York City-based debt consolidation company, and the Empire State Development Corporation has pledged $10 million in Excelsior Tax Credits spread over a 10 year period, but SFS CEO Ryan Sasson said that is not the only reason the company is expanding to Western New York.

“We love your pride in your city, in your towns, in your jobs. It is something that is energetic, it is something that Strategic believes it can really feed off of, and that is why we chose Buffalo.”

Sasson expects the Amherst office to open by early August, and begin operations by this fall. The company is already accepting job applications, and interested Western New Yorkers can submit their resumes here. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
