Joe Pintimalli, CPP, founded South Florida Payroll Services in 2007.  He had formerly built and sold one of the most successful payroll services in the Northeast US, and then served as Regional Vice President for one of the nation’s top 5 payroll providers.Joe PintimalliThe creation of South Florida Payroll Services enabled Joe to put his vision
for the industry into action and create a company that would give customers what is missing in the payroll industry: VALUE.  Joe recognized that in the past, most businesses could only choose from the behemoth national companies that focus on bottom line profits rather than customer satisfaction.  These big payroll service bureaus grew larger through over-inflated processing fees and endless nickel-and-dime charges.  However, Joe knew there was a better way to build a payroll service, one that would not include inexperienced and uncaring payroll processors.  South Florida Payroll Services prides itself on providing a high-quality, customer focused payroll service at a very competitive rate.
