    About the Manchester NH office

    John and Bernadette Roller opened Express Employment Professionals in 2004. After working as a Senior HR Professional for 25 years, John believed they could open a better employment agency, their vision was to build a staffing agency that would offer a wide variety of staffing and HR services while providing the customer service that could only come from someone who thoroughly understood HR.  Their search led them to Express because of their national reputation, extensive offering of services, and partnering ability. The Express Employment Professionals franchise is part of a network of over 750 franchisees forming Express Services Inc., the fourth largest staffing company in the United States.  Express also operates internationally in Australia, Canada and South Africa.
