I’m passionate about what we do as a company, and I’m ready to continue to build on PEMCO’s success in my new role as CEO.

Burgess has more than 20 years of management experience in the employee leasing industry, and has been serving as PEMCO’s president and COO for the past 10 months.

“Clint’s extensive experience in leading a PEO provides a strong foundation for our future goals as a company,” said Nate Ward, of PEMCO’s board of directors. “He has been instrumental in making significant improvements thus far, and I’m confident he will continue to grow and expand PEMCO into the leader in the industry.”

Burgess will set the overall strategy and oversee all aspects of the company.
