Rick Hammell

About

After years of holding key Human Resource Management positions with publicly traded companies, Rick Hammell, formed the predecessor to his former PEO in 2008 with the goal of giving clients the best of both worlds: the benefits and state-of-the-art technology available to most large companies, and the personal service and flexibility that smaller companies expect. Rick has been in the Domestic and International PEO arena since 2008, most recently as Vice President and Chief Operating Officer. He developed and grew his former PEO through its split from its parent company, where he served initially as Director of Human Resources for a short period before becoming Vice President & COO. Under his leadership, the PEO became a fast growing, risk diverse and high profit return Professional Employer Organization (PEO) in the industry. Rick has developed several successful processes and procedures for the company’s growing demands, including the training and professional development of corporate employees. As the Vice President & COO, he oversaw all human resources, benefits, risk management and payroll operations as well as directing web resources development and client relations. He holds a Bachelors in Business Administration with a focus in Human Resources and Journalism, SPHR certification and is an active participant in several organizations, including the SHRM, CI Institute & NAPEO. Rick has successfully directed his former PEOs marketing and sales operations, reinvigorated its branding and recognition in the PEO industry, and outperformed sales goals. In his role, he also oversaw sales and marketing operations. Now as the CEO of Elements, Rick is distinguished by his passion for business, his focus on collaborative team-building, and his commitment to meeting customer and market demands. His contagious enthusiasm instills him and his team members with extraordinary energy and dedication in an environment where creativity and innovation are encouraged. Rick does not just set out ambitious goals … he motivates people to deliver.
