Paragon’s founders, Karlee Bolanos, William Lowe, and Joshua Steele, shared a vision of growing the company to offer not only Affordable Care Act and I-9 compliance services, but to expand into other areas of HR compliance, providing a full suite of services to their clients. “We have worked with Brian for many years in a business advisory capacity, he knows our business well, and we saw it as a perfect fit,” Bill Lowe states.

Most recently, Brian Hedges was a partner with Mengel Metzger Barr in Rochester, New York, where he performed transaction advisory services and he developed strong forensic accounting and business valuation niche practices. “While I enjoyed every minute of my accounting practice, I saw the opportunity to lead a company with incredible potential in the HR compliance space.
