It all started 20 years ago with a shared vision by Tony Jordan and Tracy Mau, and today Strovis is one of Georgetown’s most successful businesses, having served clients in 32 states from four South Carolina offices with three distinct company divisions.
Jordan now serves as president of the company, and Mau is chief operating officer. Jordan’s daughter, Jenna Jordan, is the CEO. Together, the Jordans and Mau have created a multi-faceted business, offering everything from payroll and human resources consulting to company benefit plans and personal and commercial insurance plans.
On Thursday, October 25, Strovis will celebrate its two decades in business by hosting a special Business After Hours event with the Georgetown County Chamber of Commerce. The public is invited to attend the celebration from 5:30 to 7 p.m. at Strovis’ corporate headquarters at The Highmarket Business Center at 1309 Highmarket St. in Georgetown.
Food and beverages will be provided, and those attending will be eligible to win a select number of door prizes.
“We are delighted to have an opportunity to celebrate our 20th anniversary with our friends and fellow businesses here in Georgetown County,” said Jenna Jordan. “We recognize that we have many reasons to be grateful for all the support we’ve received from our local community here in Georgetown. While Strovis has grown over the years and expanded into new markets, we will never forget that we started right here in Georgetown with one employee but some big dreams.
“We look forward to the years ahead as a Georgetown business leader and to continue our growth in South Carolina and around the nation.”
Strovis traces its roots back to April 13, 1998, when 29-year-old Mau became the company’s sole employee after meeting with Tony Jordan, who provided the necessary capital to start the company and was already an established businessman and community leader in Georgetown. With Jordan providing the financial means to start the company, Mau provided the knowledge and the labor. As the company grew, Jenna Jordan joined the company in 2003 as benefits administrator before becoming CEO in 2013.
In the beginning, the company was called Unistaff Inc., before changing to USI Administrative Services in 2001 and, once again, in 2012 to Strovis, which stands for Strong Vision.
Those attending the Business After Hours event can tour the Strovis corporate office and also enjoy a delicious selection of catered foods underneath tents outside. Some special presentations will be made, as well as drawings for prizes.
Over the years, the company’s business model has progressed and expanded. Today Strovis Holdings now represents three entities: Strovis Payroll & HR, Strovis Insurance and Strovis Benefits. These three entities also partner to provide a one-stop outsourcing shop for small business employers.
In addition to the Georgetown corporate office, Strovis has offices in three other South Carolina locations: Murrells Inlet, Mount Pleasant and Summerville.
Strovis Payroll is an employee administration company and takes the services and expertise of a large corporate HR department and provides them to small- and medium-sized businesses in customizable packages.
Strovis Insurance is an independent, multi-line insurance agency specializing in personal and commercial insurance. Strovis Insurance represents a wide array of carriers to meet the needs of our clients and partners with dozens of nationally known companies.
Strovis Benefits is a full-service independent health and benefit advisory firm for small- to medium-sized businesses and their employees in the Carolinas. The division provides unbiased access to the most current and competitive health plans through the federal individual and SHOP marketplaces, private carrier exchanges, and Strovis’ own direct individual marketplace, Strovis Marketplace. Advisers have been providing health plan services to individuals and employers in the Carolinas since 2001.
