As a Certified Public Accountant, John Feaman still loves to roll up his sleeves and dig into the details with clients. Armed with degrees in both accounting and finance, John takes great pride in creating business solutions that make a difference. But perhaps most of all, he enjoys the opportunity to connect with his clients. For John, it just means a little more when you can help people you know.
Away from the desk, John is an avid outdoorsman who enjoys spending time on the golf course or knee-deep in the water doing a bit of fly fishing. Not limited to warm-weather activities, John also loves to hit the slopes in the winter; once even winning a big air snowboarding competition.
Leslie Kiefer co-founded IPS in 2010 and has been a driving force in its growth and expansion ever since. A true problem solver, Leslie is often found on her office line, deep into conversation with clients and working together towards a common goal. Leslie’s IPS teammates are quick to point to her positive attitude as making a difference both in the office and with customers.
Though she describes herself as having a definite “boring” side, enjoying such activities as cleaning and organizing, Leslie still cites The Walking Dead among her favorite television shows. Combine that with her love of Nicholas Sparks novels, snowboarding and baking, and you have one well-rounded mother of two.
As his clients tell it, Pete Feaman is not your typical Certified Public Accountant. He’s more like a friend who takes the time to listen and understand them … and he also just happens to be really great at solving payroll problems. As Pete would tell it, payroll service isn’t one-size-fits-all. Instead, it’s about getting to know each individual and figuring out what works best for them.
Have you ever heard of, yet alone visited, Brule, Wisconsin? If not, Pete will be the first one to tell you what a lovely spot it is for vacationing. Whether it’s kayaking, canoeing, trout fishing or hunting, Pete and his family live by the mantra, “It’s better in Brule!”
Sarah Lutz brings more than eight years of professional payroll experience to the table, and IPS clients are all the better for it. Said best, Sarah is a people person whose personality fits right in with the rest of the team. For Sarah, the best part of her day is not only helping IPS clients get the results they need, but also leaving them feeling good about the experience.
As someone who grew up on a Wisconsin farm, Sarah loves visiting the big city lights of Las Vegas. But rest assured, she’s still an All-American girl at heart who loves Friends, The Goonies, pizza, and of course, the Green Bay Packers.
Ashlie Bruce, the team’s newest addition, loves putting her accounting degree to meaningful use on behalf of IPS clients. According to Ashlie, there is always so much to do and so many great people to work with, that every day really is an adventure. IPS clients appreciate that Ashlie is a quick study and inherently perceptive to their needs.
Ask Ashlie about her favorite food, she’s sure to share tales of mouthwatering chocolate cupcakes filled with raspberry jam. Ask about her favorite movie and be ready to hear about the bombastic stylings of Mad Max: Fury Road. And if you ask Ashlie to officiate your wedding – well, she can do that too.
Sarah Feaman is an organized, detail-oriented, people person that’s good with numbers. So basically, she’s exactly the kind of person you want working on your payroll account. A graduate from UW La Crosse, Sarah first worked in the payroll business while in high school. Her clients are happy she came back to the industry to pursue a career.
Following in the Feaman family tradition, Sarah also loves the outdoors. So Wisconsin is the ideal place for her to enjoy all four seasons when not in the office. But, don’t think she’s content to spend all her time in the badger state. Sarah’s goal is to vacation in all 50 states. She’s currently at 21 and counting. And no, driving through a state doesn’t count!
