Gregory Packer, CEO of Farmington Hills-based AccessPoint, has been elected the National Association of Professional Employer Organizations (NAPEO) 2016-2017 Chairman of the Board of Directors.

“As Chairman, my goal is to maintain the momentum that has made NAPEO so successful,” said Packer. “Being elected to this position by my industry colleagues and competitors is something I take great pride in.”

As the Chairman of NAPEO’s Federal Government Affairs committee Greg was instrumental in the passage of the Small Business Efficiency Act which creates “Certified PEO” status for those who qualify. He also played a critical role in the passage of legislation that created Public Act 603 in Michigan, which codifies the action of PEO’s as employers of all worksite employees, including client company officers.

Packer launched AccessPoint, LLC in December 2000 and is the majority shareholder and CEO. AccessPoint is comprised of; AccessPoint HR a Professional Employer Organization which serves approximately 500 smaller employer clients. AccessPoint Employment Solutions, a staffing and recruiting business that supports more than 150 larger employers with approximately 3500 staffing associates. AccessPoint Preferred Solutions, a Healthcare IT solutions provider working with roughly 60 of the top 100 healthcare providers in the US. AccessPoint delivers services from fifteen offices throughout Michigan, Washington DC, and Bonita Springs, FL.

Packer also chairs the board of directors for Vehicles for Change, an innovative donated car program that empowers families with financial challenges to achieve economic and personal independence through car ownership and technical training. Vehicles for Change opened its second location in Detroit, Michigan in 2015. Packer is a Detroit native.

“Greg Packer has been an outstanding leader within the professional employer organization (PEO) industry almost from its start, and we are thrilled that our association will have the benefit of his knowledge and insight in the coming year,” said NAPEO President and CEO Pat Cleary.
