President & Founder
Jerry Diddle is the founder and president of Axcet HR Solutions. When he started the company in 1988, he invested everything he had in what was a relatively new business concept called a Professional Employer Organization (PEO). Originally from Washington, D.C., and a graduate of the University of Maryland, Diddle had moved to Kansas City from Detroit just three years prior to starting Axcet.
In his first few years in Kansas City, he marketed and sold franchise businesses, just as he had in Detroit. After learning about the PEO concept from a colleague who had recently established one in Detroit, Diddle believed Kansas City-area businesses could benefit greatly from having a local PEO operation. He built his company based on his “high-touch” philosophy and relationship-oriented approach. He took great pride in personally hand delivering many of his clients’ first payroll checks.
