Akron welcomes the payroll and workforce management solutions franchise that supports the local small business community proudly.


LITTLETON, COLORADO, December 2, 2021 –The boutique-style full-service payroll and workforce management company that designs payroll for small businesses launched as a separate payroll service in 2008. The significant increase in efficiency allowed the concept to emerge as a franchise in 2012. Payroll Vault keeps fulfilling dreams of business ownership across the nation and the Lambachers took notice. Although both were well-established in the corporate sector, they have leapt into small business ownership as co-owners of Payroll Vault Akron.

Ed and Kim Lambacher describe themselves as “two old souls” who realized the value of a great partnership early in life. Born and raised in Akron, Ohio, they met as seniors at Akron North High School and attended The University of Akron together. In what seems to them like nanoseconds, they raised two beautiful children, moved to the state of Georgia (and back), and have now amassed quite the collection of dachshunds. Four, to be exact. 

Ed’s extensive background in operations management and support (and working for his parents’ small power washing business) has prepared him for running a business and all it entails. Kim brings with her years of experience in Quality Control and Risk Management within the financial and insurance industries. “We consider ourselves truly fortunate; we have not only achieved our dream of owning our own business, but we also get to work alongside each other as best friends of over 30 years.”, says Kim.


Small businesses will always need to be able to successfully navigate the legislative and compliance modifications so they can ensure that their staff is taking care of and that they are also taking advantage of recovery opportunities so they can keep moving forward. Payroll Vault is continuing to offer guidance and assistance with the Family First Coronavirus Response Act (FFCRA), Employee Retention Tax Credit (ERTC), American Rescue Plan, Payroll Protection Plan, Economic Injury Disaster Loan (EIDL), and other Recovery Program support to ensure the success of small businesses everywhere. 

There is no slowing the boutique-style payroll and workforce management solutions company from paving the way for small business success on a grand scale.


As entrepreneurs themselves, the Lambachers identify with the unique challenges that small business owners face. For example, they understand that trust is a crucial component of the business relationship. You must earn it over time. As a result, they will operate their business on the principles of a great partnership: integrity, transparent communication, clear expectations, the ability to listen and adapt, and, of course, by maintaining a good sense of humor. 

“We consider it a privilege to assist your small business in saving time, becoming more cost efficient, and avoiding harsh penalties with Payroll Vault’s payroll solutions. We can’t wait to help you “vault” to the next level in YOUR business!”, says Kim excitedly.

The Lambachers believe being client-focused, compassionate, and active in the community is the foundation for success. “That is why we were so drawn to Payroll Vault.”, Ed states. “They share our passion for providing unapparelled service and understand the importance of being local and part of the community.”

We are excited to say ‘Here we grow again’,” stated Sean Manning, Payroll Vault CEO/Founder. “Our goal is to re-define payroll one payroll at a time and be the source of help and guidance that every business owner deserves. The Lambachers bring high energy, the desire to help, and a supportive nature that will lend itself to building exceptionally strong relationships. Welcome to the Payroll Vault Family Kim and Ed!”
