BROOMFIELD — Big Fish Payroll Services, a California-based boutique human-resources service, has opened offices in Broomfield and Denver to serve companies in the Boulder Valley, Northern Colorado and Denver.
Big Fish, founded by chief executive Justin Dignam, provides payroll, time and attendance, benefits administration and digital new-hire orientation services.
Big Fish operations in Colorado will be managed by longtime Colorado businessman Darren Knauss, who lives in Broomfield. Knauss will stage operations from his home office and from 8354 Northfield Blvd., Suite 3700, in Denver.
The company has operated for 13 years in Southern California. Dignam said he chose Colorado for expansion because both his children are or were students at the University of Colorado Boulder.
“Visiting Boulder for the four years my daughter studied at CU, and now with my son also attending, it is so evident all the good things Colorado has to offer them as people,” Dignam said. “Additionally, the business climate includes a well-educated and forward-thinking workforce, which is the exact audience who can appreciate what we have to offer.”
