Who we are

Our passion for small business success drives everything we do. More than 30 years ago, our co-founders Larry Bartholomew and B.J. Wright set forth to build a business that would benefit the small companies in their community.

Today, Rick Bartholomew and John Bartholomew continue this legacy, offering solutions that positively impact business owners, employees, and their families. Our services help businesses transform into places where employees are empowered to be their very best, which in turn helps both the company and our community succeed.
