Two OKC Staffing Firms Merge

Accel Financial Staffing Solutions and Neese Personnel, both women-owned staffing firms in Oklahoma City, recently merged and will operate under the Accel brand. 

Neese Personnel is joining Accel Financial Staffing, operating under the Accel name from the company’s current location at 5117 N Shartel Ave.

Both firms have a long history in Oklahoma City as two of the longest-serving and woman-owned staffing firms in Oklahoma City. Terry Neese found Neese Personnel in 1975. Meg Salyer started Accel in 1995. 

“I am extremely grateful for the success throughout our 47 years in business,” Neese said. “I attribute our success to the clients and employees we’ve had the privilege to work with. They represent the best memories over my 25 years with the company and I thank them for our past success and I’m looking forward to the future and the opportunities that this new partnership brings.” 

Kim Neese began working at Neese Personnel in 1998 and purchased the firm from her mother in 2006. Ownership of Accel transferred from Meg to long term employees Renée Kissler,

Debbie Gardner and Diana Wall when the three women purchased the firm in October 2020.

“We share a local focus, concentrating our work in central Oklahoma for professional job

Seekers,” Gardner said. “We also have long shared a mutual respect – starting with our pioneering founders, Terry and Meg, and continuing with the next generation of owners.”
