Jim Rocco – Owner
Jim’s main focus for the past several years has been to help small to medium size firms integrate business solutions that help them grow, increase profitability, and reduce employee related liabilities. Roc-co. Consultants was established in March of 2011 for that purpose.
Jim spent the first 15 years in the workforce helping special needs students at various public schools in Pennsylvania and Texas. A career change in 1992 led Jim to the Professional Employer Organization (PEO) business where he spent the next 22 years gaining knowledge and valuable experience working in a variety of positions. The first 7 years were spent at a regional PEO in Texas, building and managing an HR/Benefits Department from the ground up. In 1997 Jim was a co-founder of a Regional PEO headquartered in Texas. After serving in several positions, Jim became the C.O.O. and served in that capacity for 10 years. During that time period the PEO tripled in size and expanded nationally, with a presence in 44 states.
Jim graduated with a Bachelor’s of Science degree from the University of Pittsburgh in 1976. He went on to complete his Master of Arts degree at Ohio State University in 1977. Jim and his wife Judy have 4 adult children and seven grandchildren. They enjoy traveling and activities such as: working out, boating, snow skiing, and spending quality time with their extended family.
