Southeastern Companies Announces Name Change to Global Employment Solutions PEO

TAMPA, FL--(Marketwire - August 4, 2008) - Southeastern Companies, one of Florida's top ten professional employer organizations, announced a name change to "Global Employment Solutions, PEO Division," (OTCBB: GEYH) effective August 1, 2008. The name change is not the result of a new ownership change, acquisition or merger with another company.

"We've been servicing the Florida community for over 20 years," says Division President Terry Koch. "We're not looking to change how we do business. Instead, we're thrilled about the opportunity to expand our service capabilities to our valued customers."

"Our evolution into Global Employment Solutions was necessary to increase brand awareness and accommodate our rapidly expanding service offerings," says President and CEO Howard Brill. "We acquired Southeastern Companies back in 1998 and chose to continue operating the PEO division as Southeastern Companies. Changing the name now not only affords us the freedom to expand into any Global market, but our customers benefit from Global's wide range human resource service offerings, including staffing, consulting, employee leasing (PEO) and executive search."

Global Employment Solutions conveys unlimited global reach -- meaning the company has the expertise and resources to deliver exemplary service across a wide range of human resource needs. It also conveys local intelligence -- meaning that the company has flourished in local communities for upwards to 60 years in some markets. "Our company has the advantage of intimately knowing the industry and our customers' explicit needs," added Mr. Brill.

Having recently gone public while retaining the company's original leadership team, Global Employment Solutions PEO will continue to provide Professional Employer Organization (PEO) services to fulfill the needs of enterprise-level organizations. The company offers human resource assistance and handles employer risk such as payroll, tax administration, workers' compensation, employee benefit programs and regulatory compliance.

In conjunction with the name change, Global PEO will have new marketing collateral. The company's Web site has also changed to www.gespeo.com.
