Our History

Our company was founded by Aaron Tennant, who saw a need for his own businesses to outsource accounting, payroll, IT, and HR. He didn’t need a full-time person for each of his companies, so the idea of sharing these functions at one centralized location made a lot of sense. From those beginnings, Total Solutions was born. We now serve many businesses throughout the region who have that same need – they want to be efficient with their resources and focus on their business, not the administrative pieces that slow them down. We help by providing the services that keep them running; PEO, IT, human resources, accounting, payroll, and marketing.

In January of 2019, Melissa Pepper. Melissa’s high-energy leadership and focus on service has allowed the company to continue down the path set by Aaron in 2015. In September 2021, Kristin Glass took over as President of Total Solutions after 16 years with the Quad Cities Chamber of Commerce. Kristin’s knowledge of the Quad Cities business community and leadership experience is a tremendous asset as Total Solutions continues to grow

We understand you may not need a full-time person for all back-office needs, but you do need someone you can trust when the need arises. We work with each client to customize their service – providing as much or as little time as they desire to help them run.

Taking care of business so you can get back to yours.
