The merger expands Engage’s growing presence in the western region of the U.S.
“Utah is a strong market for the PEO model and partnering with the Zamp HR team allows us to bring Engage’s unique product set to small and medium-sized businesses in a state known for entrepreneurship,” said Jay Starkman, CEO of Engage PEO. “The Allreds have built a quality PEO. The Zamp HR team is both client-centric and employee-centric and is a great fit with the Engage family of companies.”
“The entire team at Zamp HR is laser-focused on client service, and we have always prioritized our own team as well, both of which are clearly shared values with the Engage team,” said Craig Allred, co-founder and president of Zamp HR. “We are excited that our clients will be the beneficiaries of Engage’s expanded set of high touch services, without any change in their Zamp contact points that they have worked with over the years.”
Zamp HR will retain its brand name and become an Engage company. Zamp HR’s Lindon, UT office will remain as its center of operations.
