Scott Langer

Sales Executive

Real Title: #PayrollDude

Affectionately referred to as our very own Payroll Dude, Scott does a little bit of everything at Horizon, but is laser focused on helping our clients improve their HR processes. He pretty much has his phone attached to his ears as he goes from one thing to another, and does all that while juggling his many tasks. In the payroll business for over 20 years, Scott knows his stuff.

Scott and his wife Julie have been married 27 years, and they have two sons. He has been a long-time member of the Centerville Noon Optimist Club and enjoys giving back to the community.  Driven to have an impact both at and away from work, Scott doesn’t stop until he knows he has helped in a real way. Don’t take our word for it though. Give him a call.

Real Title: #ChaosCoordinator

Regularly hyped up on Mountain Dew and Reese’s Cups, Stephanie thrives as the champion ring leader of our team. Her job is make sure that all aspects of the payroll process are handled accurately and efficiently. With an accounting degree and 10 years as operations manager, Stephanie is an expert in our products and services and works with each client to ensure their onboarding is simple and seamless. She loves the challenge of turning each new day’s craziness into payroll gold. She has seen it all, but makes each customer’s unique challenges a priority.

Outside of work, she dons a superhero cape to keep up with her kids’ schedules while fueling her passion for running. She and her husband Joe enjoy the great outdoors and many family adventures together. From the outside looking in, Stephanie is quite funny and some say a bit cuckoo, but her closest friends know her as loyal and determined. She’s whip smart, too.

Mark Cooper

Sales Executive

Real Title: #BigFish

Mark has been with Horizon since 2005 and in the payroll business for a long time before that when he had his own payroll company. He originally studied marine biology so he could work with sharks, but decided ultimately to swim with the big fish in business and finance at the University of Alabama. His days at work are full. Between meeting new potential customers and making sure the ones he has are happy, Mark manages to keep his head above water. He is a keen listener and is focused on being sure clients benefit from Horizon’s solutions.

Away from work, he values time with his wife Susan and family. If he’s not playing tennis, he may be thinking of the freedom and independence of sailing between Caribbean Islands. Between work and play, Mark is always active. He is a bit of a teaser, but puts peoples’ feelings above all else. We like that.

Tax Manager

Real Title: #TheFixer

Taxes are complicated and ever changing.  Becky makes taxes understandable and makes sure each customer is compliant. Her days can be crazy, but Becky will always go above and beyond to do what’s best for our clients, even helping them figure out problems from before they were our clients. Making taxes easier for our clients makes Becky very loved and appreciated. Who knew her biology degree would be used to dissect the tax code?

She’s loved and appreciated at home, too. Married to her crazy husband Jeff for 13 years, they have two kids, a tomboy diva and a sweet-hearted monster. She is a leader in scouts and at the bowling alley, and begrudgingly in the laundry room, too. All we know is that she is hard-working and cares a lot! Amazing!

Outside of work, Sarah is excitedly preparing to tie the knot in October of 2018.  She and her fiancé, Thaddeus, are constantly on the go and adventures await them around every corner.  You may find her hiking, biking, rock climbing, or if you’re lucky, singing at the top of her lungs during car karaoke.  In addition to all of her adventures, her cinema studies minor allows her to really appreciate a good film.  Her passion and energy are felt by all around her in both her personal and professional life.

David Lemon

IT Manager

Real Title: #nohashtag

A man with many jobs, David knows how to keep busy around the office.  When not servicing the IT equipment, keeping the internet and network going, acting as the interface between the processors and software vendors, and assisting clients in using and accessing Horizon’s web applications, you can find him helping around the office and even assessing any plumbing and electrical jobs that may arise. Phew! What does this man not do? We’re lucky he’s been with us for 17 years.

When not acting as the office handyman and technician, David enjoys photography (check out these headshots), woodworking, hiking and bicycling. Loyal maybe even to a fault, he thrives in and out of work when he’s making a difference. For our customers and for Horizon, he really does.

After 19 years and CPP certification, she’s a seasoned pro and has seen it all.

Real Title: #ShowMeTheMoney

She treats our clients like family even when she is hounding them for payment. Experience and kindness drives what she does at Horizon Payroll Solutions and our customers know she is the real deal. She’s a busy woman, tackling projects and customer problems each day. And, with a smile to boot.

She feeds her soul at the beach with her husband Tim, her 3 kids and 2 grandkids. After 22 years of marriage, they have a lot to share with their family. Tracy is known for being brutally honest and trustworthy, and she is a great asset to our team.

Rebecca Sharp

Payroll Specialist

Real Title: #PayrollGoddess

Becca is a machine. She knows how nice it is to get paid, so she makes sure that all our clients and their staff get paid accurately and in a timely manner. Knowing each customer on a first-name basis is what makes her so special, and what makes us so glad she’s stuck around for 10 years. She races against the clock to clean her desk, but occasionally time wins and she stays late to make sure everything gets done right for her customers.

It makes sense then that outside of work, Becca likes to throw parties.  She is always the hostess, whether she’s onboarding a new customer or entertaining at home. She lives for Fridays so she can spend time with her hubby Sean and 2 kids, Hayden and Hadley at their sporting events. At work and out, Becca is loyal and trustworthy and, thankfully for us, patient.

Solving unique problems for clients is her passion, and she does it with ease.

Married for nearly 30 years, Tina and her husband Scott, enjoy their kitty cat and trips to the beach. Often donned in pink and in her garden, Tina adds so much of her heart to everything she touches. She aims to please, goes the extra mile every chance she gets and makes every person feel like they are the most important.

Payroll Specialist

Real Title: #TodayIsANewDay

Linda somehow gets it all done, even when the printer breaks and the system is down. She doesn’t stop until every file is off her desk and every client is happy. There isn’t a day that goes by that she doesn’t give individualized service to her satisfied clients.

Her passions outside of work are too many to list, but family is first (her latest title of Grandma is her favorite) followed closely by the Chicago Blackhawks, any animal and, even politics. But we don’t hold that against her because somehow she makes it all fun.

Kelly Cox

Operations Assistant

Real Title: #TheCoverQueen

Kelly treats our clients like family and since she is trained to cover when anyone is off, she basically knows everything. She thrives on deadlines and works like mad to make sure everything is done accurately. She plans her attack and executes perfectly.

She treats her own family like family, too. That helps with 3 kids 6 and under. Kelly and her husband Daniel give most of their free time driving their oldest around while corralling their little ones. She’s a wife and momma first, and we are perfectly happy to take third place in her life.

Brad Johnson

Brad Johnson

President

Real Title: #NoTitleNeeded

As our resident CPA and company president, Brad leads by example. He’s always at the ready to roll up his sleeves and get to work. As Horizon’s leader, he sets the vision while incorporating the valued thoughts of the Horizon Team.  He works strategic partnerships, but never shies away from talking to our clients and helping when things are hectic. Brad takes pride in being a trusted partner and advisor to our varied client base.

Away from Horizon, Brad is busy with family, coaching, church or rolling up his sleeves at home (aka yard work).  Beyond that, Brad loves skiing and rooting on the Cubs while dreaming of when he has time to drive the tractor on the family farm.  There just never seem to be enough hours in the day! Since he thrives on being busy, he’s thriving.

President

Every Day is Crazy, but Wednesdays are Nuts.

In the payroll world, Wednesdays are the busiest, but whatever crazy day it is we manage to get it all done, and done correctly.

Our team thrives under pressure and works like mad to make sure the phones get answered and payrolls are processed in time for payday.

We work harder so you don't have to.
