Meet Our New Compliance Specialist


We are very happy to welcome Jamie Pavlunenko, our new Compliance Specialist, to the team! 

Jamie has owned her own Professional Branding and HR Consulting business for the last decade with a prior history in HR leadership roles. She leverages a strong attention to detail to guide businesses in crafting policies and programs that comply with local, state, and federal regulations. Additionally, she utilizes robust written and verbal communication skills to deliver HR-related communications that are clear, concise, and understandable for all stakeholders. She is passionate about helping individuals and businesses reach their maximum potential. Jamie resides in Summerville, SC with her husband, two teenagers, and three dogs. She loves reading, camping, rodeo (she let her baby grow up to be a cowboy), and softball (with her travel-baller). She holds an MBA in Organizational Development and the Certified Professional Resume Writer credential.

Something else: Jamie is a violinist and volunteer for a local coonhound rescue!

Meet Our CEO, Todd Keener


First things first: Happy retirement to PayReel’s founder and longtime CEO, Heidi McLean! While Heidi will continue supporting the company through its transition period, we are proud to announce that Todd Keener has stepped in to fill the role.

In combination with his previous experience, Todd’s 5-year tenure as COO at PayReel, and 5 years on PayReel’s board before that, have prepared him well. 

Todd is a self-proclaimed geek with proven business acumen. He began his career by launching one of Colorado’s first internet service providers in 1993, growing it to one of the largest in the country, and ultimately selling it to publicly-traded RMI.

Todd’s diverse background has given him experience combining technology with leadership to meet the ever-evolving demands of today’s business world and he’s used his love for business strategy to help grow several companies including Arrival Telecommunications, 3C, and American DataBank.

In his new role as CEO, Todd will be focused on continuing to stay ahead of the game in security and privacy (which is especially important in this industry) as well as meeting changing demands/regulations through software developments and enhancements.
We look forward to continuing to serve you!

About PayReel

PayReel was founded with one goal in mind: To make it easy for companies to work with independent contractors and freelancers. As the employer/agent of record, PayReel absorbs much of the risk associated with engaging contingent workers. PayReel also streamlines the process and provides paperless onboarding while handling worker classification, compliance issues, employee payments and year-end tax filing and reporting. In short, PayReel is the closest thing to having an easy button for contingent workforce management.

Introducing Our New VP of Technology: Mark Lindley


Overseeing all things tech is a big job for just about any company, and with the software that’s core to our business and the level of information that crosses our paths, PayReel is no exception. That’s why we’re so happy to welcome a long-time expert to our team!

Mark Lindley: VP of Technology 

Mark oversees the company’s communications, PC security, software engineering, and core application. Security is a top priority at PayReel and Mark is responsible for the firewalls, penetration tests, user education, and PC updates that keep clients safe.

Mark has a wealth of experience in security, telecommunications, software engineering, software development, and enterprise architecture. He has been in the industry long enough to remember when computers weren’t a part of daily life and has led multiple companies through the massive changes of the previous 3 decades. He has held leadership roles with companies like iLending, William M Mercer, Coopers and Lybrand, CIMCO Communications, and Comcast.

Mark’s background, in conjunction with his propensity for business, make him a good fit for his role at PayReel. He is used to adapting to changing times and he always considers the business value of the solutions he presents.

Just as he strives to find the best solutions in his work, Mark strives to improve himself in his personal areas of interest—such as golf and fitness. He loves hiking, running, fishing—anything that gets him outdoors—and he also enjoys cross-generational rock & roll and SciFi movies.

Something Else: It’d be a mistake to put Mark into a “tech guy” or any other type of box. His interests and background are diverse: He was a pole vaulter in college and even used to show dogs as a kid.
