  • Jeff and Margaret Rey - Owners of Express Employment Professionals of Howell & Brighton, Michigan

    Jeff and Margaret Rey

    In 2007, we opened the Express office with the intent of creating a diversified customer base that was not dependent on any one industry. We came in with a simple mission that we continue to follow, “To help as many people as possible find good career opportunities by helping our customers find good people.”  Since then, the Express office in Livingston County has grown into one of the 50 largest offices in the Express family worldwide.

    By following our mission, Express-Howell has grown and developed key partnerships with dozens of businesses as a testament to their personalized staffing approach. We take continuous improvement and service very seriously recognizing the unique difference between the skills and culture of each company we serve.

    Jeff is an experienced business executive with extensive background in manufacturing organizations as a sales professional and operational manager. Prior to starting the Express office in Livingston County, Jeff operated JPR Sales Inc., a manufacturer’s representation agency servicing the automotive industry. He earned his bachelor’s degree in mechanical engineering from Michigan State University and his master’s in business from Eastern Michigan University.

    Before joining Express, Margaret worked with Jeff as a controller for JPR Sales. She was also a district manager with The Gap Stores. Margaret received her bachelor’s degree in retail management and a minor in Business from the University of Illinois.

    Both Jeff and Margaret believe that by consistently conducting every aspect of their business with honesty and integrity, they will not only achieve success for their associates, but will be a valued partner for their clients.

    The Reys are committed to the Livingston County area.  Jeff serves on the Howell Chamber of Commerce Board of Directors and is actively involved with the Livingston County Workforce Development Council Board.  Express-Howell is a member of both the Howell and Brighton Chambers of Commerce.  Express-Howell is also a member of the Livingston County Chapter of the Society of Human Resource Managers.

    Jeff and Margaret are long-time sponsors of multiple local non-profit agencies including Bountiful Harvest, United Way, Love Inc., Gleaners Food Bank, Salvation Army and Ann Arbor Spark. Together they are very involved within their church, school and community athletic organizations.
