Hunsche CPA Group and Premier Payroll have expanded from Fort Wayne into the Warsaw market with offices at 931 E. Center St.
Mike Hunsche, managing director of Hunsche CPA Group, said, “We’re a full-service CPA firm based out of Fort Wayne, expanded to Warsaw when LuAnn Gaisford wanted to retire.”
Gaisford has been in Warsaw over 15 years but is ready to retire.
“We are taking over her practice and coming up here,” Hunsche said. “As far as what we offer, we do income taxes, business, personal, bookkeeping, consulting, buy-sale agreements, valuations, issue financial statements and then on our Premier Payroll side, we also do full-service payroll processing.”
He said they are open now and basically are just stepping into Gaisford’s firm and taking over her business.
“We’ve rebranded her company under us, and we’ll be stepping into her shoes and taking over and doing everything that she used to do,” Hunsche stated.
Jamie Miller, director of Premier Payroll, explained, “Basically, we are a third-party processor for payroll and we just do payroll for other companies. We’re kind of like - for lack of a better term - think of us like ADP paychecks but we have better customer service, we are local, we like supporting our local community and our surrounding communities. We are a full processing company.”

Their average customers are in the small- to medium-sized company size, but Miller said they do have a few large companies, meaning over 200 employees with one company having over 800 employees.
Premier Payroll’s staff include Miller and three other team members, all full time.

“We’re open, taking on new clients and anxious to meet people and so far we’ve really enjoyed getting a chance to come up to Warsaw,” Hunsche said.
He said they hope to grow their Warsaw office so it’s fully functional and staffed by local people.
“We’re excited!” Hunsche said, noting how welcoming Warsaw has been.

“We’ve been around the Fort Wayne area for over 20-30 years, and we’ve been servicing clients locally. We just are the local company to come to for any payroll needs. We really enjoy helping out everyone around us. We support local people and we want the same thing. We have great customer service,” Miller stated.
She said she and her staff were excited to be a part of the community.
