Kent Ahlswede, CPA
Kent founded Staff Resources, Inc. in 1974 (now known as Allevity HR & Payroll) after devoting twenty years to his successful CPA practice. As a CPA, Kent recognized small to mid-size employers faced payroll, personnel and compliance liabilities that detracted from their ability to effectively manage their businesses. Consequently, SRI was conceptualized and formed. Over the last twenty-five years, he has been instrumental in developing both the California and National Organization, formerly known as the National Staff Leasing Association. Kent has been and continues to be highly active in the development of legislation and regulatory practices on both the state and federal levels.
