Fort Collins, CO / HQ

Where it all started…

Journey Payroll & HR – Fort Collins

Our core values, teamwork, and offerings combine to create the perfect option for businesses in Northern Colorado. These core values include our clients, our team, integrity, excellence, and innovation. We believe these strong values make us stand out amongst payroll company competitors.

Not only that, our emphasis on teamwork cultivates the best experience and service for our clients. We work together for all clients, ensuring your experience is amazing, not just satisfactory. Our offerings and available technology are also a result of this teamwork. Each service has a designated team member to ensure all bases are covered.

Our goal to stay one of the best customer service companies will always stay at the forefront of our decisions. While we will continue striving for the best technology and value, we believe this is worthless without the Journey level of service!

Local Ownership

Kevin and Sue had an idea to bring service back to the payroll industry. They both felt service was almost completely forgotten by the nationally-traded companies. In addition to service, the focus was on providing big technology to our clients. As we grew, we added more and more offerings to win competitive deals because businesses want the best of both worlds: service and ease of technology. Both of these pieces are a work in progress, and they always will be, as we always strive to be better today than we were yesterday.

Northern Colorado is home to our founders, and our Headquarters will always stay here in Northern Colorado, our “home”. The small business community here is as strong as anywhere, and it’s easily found. To anyone involved in this community, it’s not a secret how this happens. The community and individuals here are dedicated, strong, intelligent, and work as one. That formula will always generate success, and Journey is proud to be a part of this growing community.

Community Involvement

Journey Payroll & HR is proud to be part of the community we work in. Being active where we work is an important part of being a local business owner. This rings true with our JourneyTogether initiative, with its focus on supporting local business. This ranges from incentivizing our employees to shop local during the holidays to providing lunches to our fantastic staff from local eateries to our efforts to help local non-profits shape the future of tomorrow.

“Our founding location ownership is the driving force for Journey’s success by starting and ending everything with heart!”

Pittsburgh Steelers! If you’re a Steelers fan, you’re alright in Kevin’s book! He’s a big sports fan, so he also loves his San Jose Sharks and Oakland A’s as well.

Sue Shirley

Raised in Colorado, Sue’s favorite sports team is the Denver Broncos of course! She loves being outside and taking walks, and sipping on her favorite drink — iced tea

Kirsten Madland

Executive Vice President of Tax | Shareholder

Her and her husband Sean have two kids! As a family, we love being outdoors — we look forward to camping in the summer months, and ski as much as we can handle in the winter months!

Audra Sandage

CFO | Shareholder

Audra and her husband Thomas love going on outdoor adventures. They are always looking for the next zip-line, paddle-boarding spot, or waves to catch.

Ashlee Faulkner

Sr. Director Client Success | Shareholder

I love all things COFFEE! Italian food is my weakness. I love fall and all things that come along with it; sweaters, scarfs, leaves, crisp air and the best fall smells!!

Lina Freed

President of Payroll Operations | Shareholder

Lina is a 5th-generation native of Colorado, with three of those generations residing in Fort Collins. So, it’s understandable that her roots run deep in her home state, and her Colorado pride is evident.
