Teresa Creech is CEO of TalentWave, a Denver-based provider of independent contractor compliance and payrolling services. Creech has some 22 years in the staffing industry. TalentWave experienced aggressive growth in the past year and watching her team come together to get things accomplished, even as the company brought in new hires, was one of the highlights of the year. Looking ahead, Creech plans to continue helping companies navigate the legislative environment, which is undergoing constant change. There has been more legislative activity in the last year than in the last 20 combined, she said.
