About Us



Peak17 Consulting, Inc. began back in 2008 when friends, Stacy Charest and Wendy Lins, realized that major staffing firms lose business when an effective mechanism to bring in contractors through a W2 model does not exist. This planted the seeds that would soon become a viable business venture offering just that and more.


Headquartered in Denver, Colorado, Peak17 started providing W2 Payrolling Services with a straightforward business model to minimize overhead while retaining a high level of service for both the W2 employee and the clients of Peak17. Today Peak17 partners with organizations of all sizes nationwide to provide payrolling and staffing services.


As women and mothers, Wendy and Stacy understand the hardships some women face both in the workplace and day to day life. In addition to establishing a women-led payrolling service and staffing business, they also want to use their platform in staffing to give back and to bring awareness to women’s issues. In 2018 they launched their “Hope in a Box” program.
