About Us


Based on their 30 plus years of business experience and seeing the need for payroll services for small-to-mid-size companies, Joe Jacobson and Dallas Knepp founded NexGen Payroll and Business Solutions, LLC. Vicki Schafer, Controller for NexGen, has 28 years managing payroll calculation and payroll tax experience in 40+ states for a national franchise, Travel 2000, L&L Food Centers and Precision Motor Transport Group (PMTG). She now heads our team of dedicated professionals.  

In February 2018, NexGen Payroll and Business Solutions purchased the assets of Mid-Michigan Payroll, previously owned/operated by Norma Wolf since 2011. Norma was also the former owner/operator of CBS Payroll and has 25 plus years providing over 250 companies with payroll services in Michigan, Ohio and Indiana. 


In 1992, Joe Jacobson and Dallas Knepp were two of the original founders of Bavarian Motor Transport, a tier 1 automobile transporter. The company grew from 25 employees to 520 between 1992 and 2008. When the company was sold to a Private Equity Investor, the company name was changed to Precision Motor Transport Group (PMTG). 

Jacobson (CFO) and Knepp (COO) continued to manage the company through a transactional event in December 2017. PMTG managed and calculated payroll for salaried and hourly workers, along with company drivers and owner-operators working and living in 33 different statesmultiple counties and municipalities.


NexGen Payroll's goal is to allow entrepreneurs the ability to focus on growing and operating their business and let NexGen Payroll navigate the various aspects of payroll and payroll-related taxes.
