WEST PALM BEACH, Fla., July 29, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Oasis Outsourcing is celebrating its 20th anniversary today, July 29, 2016. Founded in 1996 as a subsidiary of the Wackenhut Corporation, Oasis has grown both organically and through strategic acquisitions to become the largest privately held PEO in the United States.
Two of the original co-founders, Terry Mayotte, Executive Vice President and Chief Financial Officer, and Mike Viola, Executive Vice President of Sales, continue to serve the company today. Oasis' current President and CEO, Mark Perlberg, joined Oasis in October 2003 as the company completed a successful transaction with its first private equity partner, H.I.G. Capital, to spin off from Wackenhut and stand on its own.
"Twenty years ago, we saw the potential of what Oasis Outsourcing could become, and it's gratifying to see that potential realized tenfold," Mayotte said.
"It has been amazing to watch our company grow in terms of clients and internal employees during the last two decades," Viola added. "Our focus on providing innovative solutions and service-obsessed service has and will continue to serve us well."
In 2007, Oasis settled into its current headquarters in West Palm Beach. The company is now majority owned by private equity firm, Stone Point Capital based in Greenwich, CT, and has approximately 6,000 clients, 200,000 worksite employees and 29 locations.
"We are excited to achieve this exciting milestone, particularly as we continue to grow," Perlberg said. "We thank our valued clients for their partnership and our employees – now 800 strong – for their hard work and dedication."
