Payroll company expands into Lehigh Valley

A payroll firm serving small to mid-size businesses has expanded into the Lehigh Valley, appointing a local man to lead operations.

Priority Pay Payroll opened a temporary office on Glenlivet Drive while it continues searching for a larger local headquarters, spokeswoman Harriet Lessy said Tuesday. The Lehigh Valley operation employs 11 and is projected to increase to 25 by year’s end, Lessy said.

The Hoboken, N.J.-based company provides payroll services to businesses with employees ranging from two to 350. It has five offices companywide.

The local site is managed by Luis Campos of Hanover Township, Lehigh County. He is also Priority Pay Payroll’s managing director for Pennsylvania.

Campos also serves on the boards of directors of the Office of Minority and Women Owned Businesses of the Lehigh Valley Economic Development Corp., the Bethlehem Parking Authority, Casa Guadalupe and the Hanover Township Planning Commission.

Gov. Ed Rendell appointed Campos co-chairman of the Governor’s Advisory Committee on Latino Affairs in 2003, according to a news release.
