Asheville, NC – North Carolina- Administrative Concepts, a Florida-based PEO, recently announced a joint venture with Darrin Hunter based in Lexington, creating an unprecedented network of PEO and risk management services throughout Florida, North Carolina and California.
Darrin was looking for a way to enhance service offerings to his existing staffing clients in the areas of worker’s compensation, risk management and other PEO-related management tools.
Hunter traveled to Florida to research and review Administrative Concepts and liked what he found. Hunter states, “They are privately held, large enough to make a real difference but small enough to be responsive to changes in the industry. I was impressed.” A joint venture soon followed.
Hunter notes, “The high unemployment situation in North Carolina has significantly impacted our area’s unemployment tax rates. This, combined with our area’s lack of worker’s compensation solutions, position Administrative Concepts to offer significant relief to business owners in our area. We live and work right here and understand the issues North Carolina business owners face.”
Administrative Concepts is a top-ten ranked Professional Employer Organization (PEO), now with thirteen locations throughout Florida, California and North Carolina. The diversity of locations, as well as a comprehensive set of PEO and risk management solutions, affords the ideal opportunity to provide clients with extended support services.
When asked about the venture, Rick Bibler, Administrative Concepts’ Director of Business Development, commented that the Florida and North Carolina markets are complementary to one another. Worker’s compensation rates are similar between Florida and North Carolina. Additionally, there are very few PEO Organizations with expanded offerings actively marketing in that state. For these reasons, Administrative Concepts feels this will be a positive venture to increase their position in North Carolina.
Bibler commented, “We are excited about our expansion into the North Carolina market and look forward to continuing our organic growth. We will certainly entertain more joint ventures in the future.”
As a result of this latest joint venture, Administrative Concepts now offers PEO and related services in Lexington and Asheville, North Carolina, as well as Encinitas, California and ten locations throughout the state of Florida.
