Bill Rhodes is the President and Managing Partner of Payment Systems of Florida,
with 25 years of experience in the payroll and HR industry. Working hands-on with customers through the three steps of analysis, implementation, and customer service, Bill has the reputation of being one of the most customer-oriented professionals in the industry.
Before he founded Payment Systems of Florida in 2008, Bill worked his way up through the ranks of the monster-sized ADP corporation where he gained extensive experience working directly with companies nationwide, ranging from 10-400 employees. This was the boot camp where Bill gave his 110% effort in mastering all the complexities of payroll, workers comp, employee benefits, retirement plans, as well as PEO (employee leasing).
Bill became an Achievement Award-winning solution provider across multiple industries including construction, technology, medical and manufacturing. In the background, however, Bill’s entrepreneurial side began to talk to him. He had ideas that were innovative solutions to customer problems, and knew that forming his own company would give him the freedom to help customers in a much more personal and effective way.
“My business is based on my word,” Bill said. “I stay responsive to customer needs and care very much about their success…my reputation rides on that.” Credibility is everything in a small business, and Bill encourages his customers to give him honest feedback on a regular basis. The majority of his new customers come from word-of-mouth referrals, and from the many friends he makes as a very active member of his community.
Venice, Florida is where Bill grew up and graduated from high school. His family has been in the area since the 50’s, and spending time with his wife and extended family is Bill’s priority outside of work.
Participation in the Sertoma Club of Venice and the Suncoast Foundation for Handicapped Children are ways Bill expresses his passion for making a difference. His extremely active lifestyle began early when he excelled in a variety of sports and earned a college baseball scholarship. His competitive enthusiasm continues today with activities including tennis and fishing. Bill and his wife, Ruth, who is also his business partner, live in Venice and their office is in nearby Osprey, Florida.
