Professional employer organization Presidion Corp. has opened its first regional sales office in Georgia to manage operations in the southeast.

The new office in Duluth, near Atlanta, will provide sales and customer service solutions to the firm’s client companies and more than 2,000 worksite employees in Georgia, South Carolina, North Carolina and Alabama.

In addition to the new office, Troy, MI-based Presidion operates 11 offices throughout the southeast and midwest.

“We’ve been very successful in executing our growth plans in the southeast and believe that there is significant opportunity for additional growth. Atlanta is a dynamic market ranked among the very best in the country for starting and growing a business,” said Craig Vanderburg, president and CEO of Presidion. “The economic strength in the area and the number of small and medium-size businesses that can benefit from our services makes Atlanta a perfect next step in our geographic expansion plan–.”

Jim Beesley, vice president of sales for Presidion with more than 15 years of experience in the industry, will manage the company’s Atlanta office.
