Todd FuchsVice President Payroll Express, Inc.
Darcy is proud of her western North Dakota roots – growing up on the family ranch with three older brothers made her the independent businessperson that she is today. Her professionalism is tinted with a sharp sense of humor and quick wit.
Having started out in the dental field, first as a dental assistant and then became a Registered Dental Hygienist. Darcy quickly discovered that her skills lie in the business world. Using those talents, she built a temporary employment agency that specialized in dental personnel – working with dental professionals throughout North Dakota and western Minnesota for over 10 years.
Give Darcy a challenge and she will thrive – and so, she started a new and unique venture. In 1995, PAYROLL EXPRESS, INC. became the first professional employer organization (PEO) in North Dakota. Soon after, she formed Overland Payroll, Inc., an administrative services organization and HR outsourcing firm.
Ongoing education and training are the fundamentals of her success. Darcy became licensed in life and health insurance, first in North Dakota and then Minnesota. The next challenge became getting her PHR certification (Professional in Human Resources) – many large companies require this credential for executives in their HR departments.
In addition to her above certifications, Darcy is active in the West Fargo Area Chamber of Commerce – serving on the Board of Directors for 8 years. She is also active in Fargo Moorhead Human Resource Association (FMHRA), Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM), Bowman Chamber of Commerce, and Business Network International.
Darcy lives in West Fargo with her husband Todd. They have one daughter and son-in-law and now have the delight of two grandchildren! Darcy enjoys reading and working on “projects” with Todd. One quote that sums up Darcy’s personality is by Thomas Edison, “I never did a day’s work in my life. It was all fun”.
Todd began working at PAYROLL EXPRESS, INC. in September 2003. Darcy had decided that this “child” of hers had grown to the point where additional staff was needed. Since Todd was anxious for a change from the design/engineering industry, Darcy hired the first (only) applicant for the job!
