Jason Crawford has been a proud member of EO since 2014. He is the co-founder of Bixby Zane, an outsourced solutions group that focuses on helping clients lower their cost of doing business through Professional Employer Organizations (PEOs). After working directly for a PEO for four years, Crawford saw a key ingredient missing in the relationship between providers and their clients: customer service that was consistent, ongoing and personal. Determined to fill this gap, Crawford built Bixby Zane and its first-class qualified Outsource Provider Network. His partnership with the best PEO providers in the high-risk and high-hazard business sectors delivers the economies of scale and administration services needed to lower costs through efficiencies.
