Darcy is a Bowman, ND native, graduated from ND State College of Science and worked in the dental industry for nearly a decade following college. In 1995, she founded Payroll Express, Inc. to manage the Human Resources for small to mid-size businesses, becoming the “off-site HR department”; handling everything from hiring, benefits, and performance reviews to exits and terminations. And, yes, accurate and on-time payroll too. In 1998, she founded Overland Payroll, Inc., to manage the payroll and human resources for construction and seasonal businesses.

Along with her husband, Todd, and the rest of the team, Payroll Express became the region’s premier small business HR service and within years, built new offices “the stable” on Sheyenne Street in West Fargo. In 2020, Darcy and Todd sold Payroll Express, Inc. to a local staffing agency and have been enjoying the freedom of retirement ever since. Congratulations on your success – and THANK YOU for all of your generous contributions to our Club!

While growing up, Zach worked alongside his father at Paxton signs from 5th grade through college. Taught by his grandfather and dad, Zach learned how to hand letter vehicles and signs. In 1985, Zach installed the first version of a computer based vinyl cutter for his dad. Eventually, Zach ended up moving to Moorhead to attend MSU and pursue a degree in small business administration with a minor in accounting. Between graduating high school and attending college, Zach’s grandfather taught him how to bend neon. By bending neon in the late hours of the night, Zach was able to pay for some of his college. Eventually, Zach was recruited by his father’s cousin Paul Paxton, to work at Custom Graphics. In 2016, general manager Zach took over the family business after the untimely passing of founder Paul Paxton. Since that time, Zach has lead Custom Graphics to expand further into the digital printing and signage industry.

Outside of Custom Graphics, Zach is a husband and father of four children – three daughters and one son. Zach has been married to his wife Shelley for 20 years. Their two eldest children Lea and Jordan each got married in the past year, Dana works at Custom Graphics in Customer Service while Annie, their youngest, is in middle school.
