Client Story: Moderno Porcelain Works

Porcelain Surface Fabrication, Installation Company Partners With G&A For Fast Growth


In its first year in business, Moderno Porcelain Works, a large-format porcelain slab provider, fabricator and installer, grew from one employee to 40 employees, with offices in Houston and Miami. Getting ramped up so quickly meant there was a mountain of work to do and too few people to do it. So, Douglas Dillard, CFO and Managing Director of Moderno Porcelain Works, decided to investigate Professional Employer Organizations (PEO) in the Houston area where his company is based.


"Payroll, tax filings, getting health insurance, getting [employees] onboarded—all of those factors take time, and time costs money,” Dillard says. “Having a PEO partner allows us to focus on making sure we have the right person to help us grow our business without focusing as much on how we’re going to take care of the employee’s requirements.”


Dillard chose G&A Partners as Moderno’s professional employer organization (PEO). He liked that G&A offers a benefits solution for his employees at a fraction of the cost he’d have had to pay without a PEO. He also appreciates that G&A has a national footprint and can grow with his business.


“When we created Moderno, we knew it would be a hypergrowth company,” says Rafael Alvarez, the chief people officer at Moderno. “From the get-go, we needed to incorporate systems for scalable growth. When we engaged with G&A, we didn’t miss a beat—we didn’t miss a payroll or a timesheet. It all happened seamlessly, and now we are set up for future growth.”
