Engage PEO Expands Into New England Market with the Acquisition of GenesisHR Solutions

November 29 21:53 2022

Fort Lauderdale, FL, USA – November 29, 2022 – Engage PEO, a leading professional employer organization (PEO) providing HR outsourcing solutions to small and mid-sized businesses across the U.S., is pleased to announce it has merged with Genesis HR Solutions, a Burlington, Massachusetts-based PEO. The merger enhances Engage’s growing national position by bringing a premier, service-oriented New England PEO with a strong set of Massachusetts clients into the Engage family of companies.

“We were looking to expand our offering and unique product mix and so partnering with a team as well established in New England as GenesisHR was a no-brainer for us,” said Jay Starkman, CEO of Engage PEO. “With decades of operating experience as a PEO, GenesisHR prioritizes doing things the right way over the lifetime of their clients, which is completely in line with Engage’s culture.”

“For over 30 years, we have focused on delivering exceptional value to our client companies and their employees. We are extremely proud of the team of professionals here at GenesisHR and their commitment to making a difference for their clients,” said Bob Burbidge, CEO of GenesisHR Solutions. “We chose Engage because they share similar values to both clients and employees.”

Both companies are accredited by the Employer Services Assurance Corporation (ESAC) and maintain the Certified Professional Employer Organization (CPEO) designation from the IRS. Less than 3% of PEOs have both ESAC and IRS certifications.

Genesis HR Solutions will retain its brand name and become an Engage company. GenesisHR’s Burlington, MA office will remain as a joint center of New England operations for the companies.

Jones Day acted as legal advisor to Engage PEO in connection with the acquisition. Akerman acted as legal advisor to Genesis HR Solutions. McHenry Consulting acted as an advisor to GenesisHR Solutions in this transaction.
