Ontario, Calif. – More than 250 business and civic leaders were on hand for the grand opening of The Corporate Advocate’s new offices in Ontario. The ribbon-cutting ceremony was held on Thursday, April 21, 2016, at the 6,000-square-foot facility located at 1455 Auto Center Drive Suite 125, near the Ontario Auto Center.
The Corporate Advocate (TCA) is comprised of a family of four companies that offer unique business solutions independently of each other or in collaboration with each other – a model TCA refers to as “co-sourcing” – based on the client’s needs: 1) JS Platinum provides business insurance; 2) TCA Business Services offers payroll and employee administration; 3) TCA Government Incentives fills employment recruitment, hiring and training needs and helps small business navigate government resources; and 4) TCA Financial helps companies realize their full financial potential and ensure long-term viability.
Previously located in Rancho Cucamonga, the new location represents the fulfillment of a longtime vision of founder Joey Sanchez, who partnered with Ray Blom in 2008 to transform TCA from a tax and accounting firm into a full-service resource for small, medium, and large-scale businesses which also needed payroll, personnel, and insurance products. As TCA became more successful in the region, the need for more space and opportunities to expand client services drove the search for a larger facility.

“We basically outgrew our former location, said son and TCA chief executive officer Joey Sanchez. “Our team envisioned a location that would bring our products and services together in one location to facilitate communications between TCA divisions and to implement our collaborative co-sourcing model for our clients. Also, we can now offer meeting and training space, new tools and technology that increase our value to our clients.”
Pedro Eugenio, owner of EZ Seal Construction, Inc. and a client since 2009, agrees with Sanchez’s assessment. “It’s great to have a larger place with all of the TCA companies together in one place,” he stated. “Before, I had to go to one location for payroll services, and another location for accounting or insurance needs. It’s good for them to be here.”
In his welcoming remarks, Hon. Paul S. Leon, mayor of the City of Ontario, noted that TCA’s presence fits well into the City’s vision, given the anticipated return of control of Ontario International Airport. “We are creating Ontario as a city to live, work and play in. Now is the time to be in business in Ontario,” he said.
Leon was joined by field representatives from the offices of San Bernardino County 4th District Supervisor Curt Hagman, Congresswoman Norma Torres (35th District, Ontario), and Assemblymember Freddie Rodriguez (52nd District, Chino) in presenting certificates of recognition.
TCA management, employees, and representatives from Ontario, Eastvale, Rancho Cucamonga, and Fontana chambers of commerce then cut the ceremonial ribbon and invited guests into the modern facility for tours and a wine reception courtesy of Ontario’s San Antonio Winery. Attendees dined on In-and-Out hamburgers, chips and soft drinks while listening to music by Inland Empire-based jazz band Plena Vista.
