LITTLETON, COLORADO (November 1, 2021) Payroll Vault is a boutique-style local payroll service that designs payroll with small businesses in mind. With continued, steady growth and industry recognition nationwide, a new team is welcomed with open arms and high expectations. 

Payroll Vault Edison, New Jersey owners Jeanine Dargis and Jordan O’Donnell, a husband-and-wife team, have dreamed about owning their own business for quite some time, but it never seemed like the “perfect” time until recently. As we are all familiar, 2020 brought with it many life considerations and milestones for their family – the most notable being the birth of their daughter, Abigail. 

Jeanine explains, “We also, along with the rest of the world, experienced a lot of uncertainty and stress as the pandemic changed everything. As it seemed like the ground beneath us was shifting, we found ourselves talking more and more about what really matters to our family and what we want long-term.” Jordan states, “It just made sense to get serious about starting a business and to work on making our local community a better place. We looked at a few different business models, but Payroll Vault stood out for its strong company ethics, supportive team, and quality services.”

Payroll Vault is committed to making local businesses thrive and become the best they can be. Payroll continues to be ranked among the topmost outsourced professional services due to the industry’s growing complexity. The pandemic brought about major changes to the workforce, which is continuing its evolution even now. 


Jeanine and Jordan are not alone in the way they took this time of global uncertainty to ask the questions, “What do we really want and how do we obtain it?”

“What we love about Payroll Vault is that we can use the depth and breadth of our work and life experiences to help small businesses run more smoothly. It's an honest, valuable service that we can be proud to provide to the small business community of central New Jersey and beyond,” Jeanine concludes.

Jeanine has years of experience in specialty food manufacturing and sales. She knows firsthand how hard small businesses work for their customers, and that in turn they deserve vendors that work hard for them. Jordan has experience in both the non-profit and for-profit sectors, managing commercial and residential construction projects, and is passionate about efficiency and customer relationships.

“Our Team is excited to welcome Jeanine and Jordan to our Payroll Vault family,” stated Sean Manning, Payroll Vault CEO/Founder. “Their skillset and passion for their local community is an ideal fit for Payroll Vault’s culture, mission, and vision. As the world continues to re-define the workplace, we hope to continue to re-define payroll and be the help and guidance that every business owner deserves, now and post-pandemic.” 

Payroll Vault continues to reveal a sincere dedication to assisting small businesses across the nation to navigate the tedious legislative and compliance changes so they can ensure they and their staff are taking advantage of recovery opportunities. This is especially evident in 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 that has been needed and provided. Without a doubt, the boutique-style payroll and workforce management solutions company will continue paving the way for small business success on a big scale.
