Growing a reliable business with

Passionate People.


Crescent Payroll Solutions is built around a commitment to providing our clients passionate personalized service combined with the latest technology to help them grow and succeed.

Our history

The company was founded in May 2011. Its founder, Sanders Offner, spent many years prior to starting CPS with a national payroll firm where he learned the business and gained the skills to build his own bureau. Starting out in the closet of his house, Sanders worked hard to build a solid infrastructure centered around great customer service and relationships with his clients.

As the company grew Sanders knew that he needed help in getting all the pieces aligned to have a flourishing Bureau. He added a business partner, Justin Farrae, in 2013. Justin had a great sales career at Paychex before joining Sanders and was able to instantly add value to building the company. Sanders and Justin had one goal in mind and that was to create, implement, and execute a proven process to ensure the future success of Crescent Payroll Solutions.
