AccessPoint a full-service Human Resources, staffing and recruiting organization, has named Luis Perez as president and chief operating officer.

As president and COO, Perez will manage and direct growth initiatives including strategic acquisition. He has worked for AccessPoint in a consultant role since December 2016.

Previously, Perez worked with major sports organizations such as the Baltimore Ravens and Madison Square Garden. He is a former executive vice president and COO of Palace Sports and Entertainment and is a former senior vice president of business development and strategy for the Detroit Lions.

“Lou’s track record of streamlining operations and growing the organizations he has served, makes him the ideal person to grow AccessPoint and help us foster connections that will lead us into the future,” said AccessPoint CEO Greg Packer.

Perez, a Cuban immigrant, has a bachelor’s of science degree in accounting from The College of New Jersey and is a certified public accountant. He is a board member and chair of the finance committee at The SEED Foundation and is a board member of Vehicles for Change (VFC) in Detroit.

Perez and Packer met through their shared service on the VFC board. The organization helps families with financial challenges reach personal independence through car ownership and allows them to find better employment because of their access to a car.

“Through Vehicles for Change we found a similar belief in the power of possibility. I admired Luis’ passion and wanted him to bring that to AccessPoint,” Packer said. “Eventually, he realized he wanted that too.”

AccessPoint has more than 600 clients across the United States, 11 offices in Michigan, employs more than 100 people with more than 6,000 worksite employees.
