As CEO, my role is to develop and communicate a vision of success for AccessPoint. Another important part of what I do is to assemble and grow the right team and make sure they have the tools required to realize that success. I recognize that our team dynamic and our company culture are key differentiators for AccessPoint, many of us have been working together for over 20 years. I am passionate about expanding our AccessPoint Cares initiative, particularly in our Detroit community.
I began my career in the PEO industry in 1984 with Dallas based Omnistaff, Inc. as an independent sales representative. After realizing the success that PEOs could have in the Michigan marketplace, I founded my first PEO, Amstaff, in 1985. After twelve years, Amstaff was acquired by ADP, forming what is now ADP TotalSource. I served as Midwest-area president for ADP TotalSource for two years. In 2000, I helped found AccessPoint and I have served as Chairman and CEO since 2002.
My personal life is busy as always, despite being an empty nester with my wife, Laura. We enjoy traveling and skiing, cycling, hiking, and boating together. We also spend whatever time possible with our four adult children, all of whom live out of state. I am currently pet free, but after having Rottweilers for most of my adult life, I am hoping to have one again in the future.
