Chris Carlino

Founder & CEO

With nearly two decades of business development, sales management, program development, and PEO underwriting experience,  I have been able to see the industry from many sides. Working for various PEOs through the years and building a large national PEO brokerage has given me a unique perspective in to the industry.  


Working for PEOs has allowed me to gain valuable insight in to the internal underwriting, pricing, and profitability margins of a PEO which is pivotal to understanding how to structure every client to make it work for both parties.  Building a national PEO brokerage for one of the largest MGAs in the country, has given me an intimate understanding of the sensitive relationship between a retail agent and their clients.  Respecting these relationships is fundamental in our approach to working with agents and business owners.  Educating our agents and clients on the PEO concept and value proposition, is most effective coming from someone with years of experience and a true "inside" perspective in the industry.
