Our commitment to integrity in everything we do has made us what we are today: a solid, trustworthy company that builds long-term relationships with our clients, candidates, and employees. We’re proud of our reputation as the company that helps you get things done on schedule, on budget, and with great quality.
The founders of The Premier Group started the Company with one basic goal: to give back to our community.
Having spent decades working for large corporations that hungrily chased revenue at all costs, we came to realize that there had to be more to business than net income, stock prices and shareholder meetings. So, we decided to build a company that offered people an opportunity to do GREAT things right out of the gate. All these years later, we are proud to be able to look back and say that, from the first dollar sold, a portion of every invoice we have ever generated has gone towards helping those in greater need.

Rich is a transplant from Northern England who grew up in Thatcher Britain. Coming from three generations of farmers and truck drivers he learned very quickly that the harder you work the luckier you get. As a member of the Great Britain Track team, he jumped on an opportunity to come to the US on a track scholarship once he realized, (before everyone else did) that his competitor’s superior talent was quickly catching up with his hard work. An entrepreneur at heart, he started a successful business in college that he later sold, before beginning a career in Staffing. Having spent the next 10 years climbing the corporate ladder, only to realize that the view wasn’t all it was made out to be, he switched his interests back to building a company and a culture the way he believed all companies should look. Despite a successful career in sales and business, by far his proudest achievement is his amazingly talented children who quickly ground him and remind him every day what life is really about.

He loves to be outdoors and what better place to live than Colorado when that is the case! Sam’s children bring light to Sam’s life that he didn’t know existed. He loves music and often slips into his own world when listening. He supports and follows Manchester United FC.
