ESG’s founder and President, Craig Allred, has been in the HR outsourcing business since 1991. After working in the industry for several years, Craig designed a new concept of how to partner with small- and medium-sized businesses to have a more client-focused approach. ESG was founded April 1, 1997, with 30 clients and 3 employees and annual sales of $3 million. By the end of 2005, ESG’s sales volume had grown to over $150 million with more than 400 highly valued clients in multiple states being cared for by 50 highly trained and experienced employees. ESG currently operates from three locations. The Company headquarters is located in Orem, Utah about 30 miles south of Salt Lake City.

Century II was founded in 1985 by Nashville businessman Ross Hickey at a time when PEOs were a relatively new concept. In 1997, CSM, Inc. acquired Century II and CSM CEO, Marc Fortune, became president and CEO of the firm. Prior to the acquisition, CSM was a Century II client. Then in 2001, Century II established Century II Services, our life and health insurance agency. Fortune Industries acquired Century II in April 2005. Our client companies are in a wide variety of industries, ranging in size from small professional groups with as few as five employees to larger multi-state, multi-site corporations with as many as 300 employees.
