G&A Partners announced today that it has acquired Leading Edge Payroll and HR Solutions, LLC a Wisconsin-based HR outsourcing provider.
Leading Edge is the seventh acquisition G&A Partners has completed in the past two and one-half years, following those of Ascend HR Solutions in November 2017, Employer Essentials in December 2017, Platinum Colorado in June 2018, Zogg Benefits in August 2018, Focus Management Group in January 2019 and Pay Pros in October 2019.
With the addition of the Leading Edge accounts, G&A Partners now serves 2,000 clients with nearly 55,000 worksite employees across the U.S. and Latin America, further establishing G&A Partners as one of the largest privately held PEOs in the nation. This acquisition will also allow the firm to develop an even stronger presence in the Midwest, where we also have offices in Chicago and Minneapolis.
“Adding Leading Edge to our growing list of successful acquisitions represents an exciting opportunity for us especially during this time of business uncertainty,” said John W. Allen, G&A Partners’ President and COO. “Beyond the expanded geographic reach that it will provide for our brand, we’re also adding great talent and experience to our team.”
As part of the acquisition, Leading Edge’s owner, Laurie Stueber, will join the G&A team. G&A Partners is also retaining Leading Edge’s client-facing employees to minimize change and continue providing the personal attention and quality service its collective clients have come to expect.
“As a business owner myself, I want to ensure our clients continue to get extraordinary customer service and top-notch HR support. G&A Partners has a nationally recognized reputation and is known for its commitment to its values. That made it a perfect match for Leading Edge,” said Laurie Stueber, former owner of Leading Edge Payroll and HR Solutions and now a senior HR advisor for G&A Partners. “I am confident that by becoming part of the G&A family, I will be able to continue servicing my clients with the same commitment to excellence. This acquisition will allow G&A to expand in the Midwest and it will provide our clients with state-of-the-art-technology, offering even more in-depth expertise and better benefit plans to our clients and their employees.”
