LBMC Employment Partners, a leading Professional Employer Organization (PEO), HR outsourcing, payroll service bureau and benefits broker based in Nashville, TN, is pleased to announce its expansion into Charlotte, North Carolina. The announcement follows the firm’s key expansion into the national space by adding Cigna national plan to its PEO, complementing the established BlueCross BlueShield of Tennessee plan. Today as benefit brokers, LBMC Employment Partners represents all major U.S. carriers, including Aetna, Humana, and United Healthcare.

“LBMC Employment Partners is excited to announce our expansion into Charlotte. We are thrilled to bring our dedicated and personalized HR, payroll, and Professional Employer Organization services to the Charlotte area and look forward to the opportunities that await,” said Sharon Powlus, President/CEO, LBMC Employment Partners.

The addition of LBMC Employment Partners in Charlotte was based on a growing client demand for services in the human resources space and will augment LBMC’s growing presence in that market with its Technology Solutions affiliate, resulting from the merger with InterDyn Artis in 2020. LBMC Employment Partners will also be working closely with LBMC’s divisions of Information Security, Risk and other consulting and advisory services in Charlotte.
