Meet Our Team

Beverly Funk Epstein – Chairwoman

As chairman of the board I strive to see that PEI continues the work I started and is capable of meeting the evolving challenges of the everyday workforce with flexible staffing solutions tailored to meet the needs of our clients. In turn, our effective staffing solutions allow our clients to concentrate on their core business. Through hard work and dedication PEI has expanded its footprint to multiple markets throughout the US. I have found enormous satisfaction in this endeavor and I attribute it to a fantastic team that works daily to operate under the sames principles and values from which the company began. I would be remiss in not saying that the thing I am most grateful for is the ability to help individuals who otherwise might not be able to secure employment on their own and to assist them in feeling that they are productive and successful in their career paths..
