Meet the People Behind
Our Payroll Service Bureau

Leslie Costigan, Founder of the payroll company PayPlus® , LLC

Before starting her own payroll company, Leslie acquired 40 years of experience working for other Massachusetts companies providing bookkeeping, payroll and human resources support. Through this experience, she found herself frustrated with the lack of customer service and mediocre systems that so many companies tolerate. She saw an opportunity to create a New England payroll company that brings excellence in all areas of her expertise with a foundation built on personal commitment to accurate and timely support, delivered with personalized, professional service.

Why PayPlus is your best choice for a full-service payroll company

aboutLeslie’s business model and commitment to excellence has served her payroll company well. Her firm currently services several hundred loyal clients throughout the United States. Whether she is supporting a one-person business, or a company with several hundred employees, Leslie is dedicated to creating the best business solution for that company. She has continued to expand her personal expertise and strengthen the value she brings to her clients by growing her technology and services. Leslie lives by the philosophy “people won’t always remember what you said or did, but they will always remember how you made them feel.”

Leslie shares her house with her husband, 3  adult cats, and Labrador Retrievers named Millie and Piper. She volunteers as a Corporator at Emerson Hospital and as Treasurer for Lakewood Beach Association in Laconia. Her other interests are golf and gardening. Leslie enjoys making memories with her three children and five grandchildren at her lake house in New Hampshire.
