KTBSpayroll Picks Up Endorsements from Maryland Automobile Dealers Association and Maryland Motor Truck Association

Baltimore, MD, August 09, 2008 --(PR.com)-- KTBSPayroll, a division of Kelly & Associates Financial Services, an affiliate of Kelly & Associates Insurance Group (KELLY), has received official recommendations from two of Maryland’s most prominent trade groups, the Maryland Automobile Dealers Association (MADA) and the Maryland Motor Truck Association (MMTA).

“Automobile dealerships face the same challenges as any small business,” said Peter Kitzmiller, president of MADA. “The people at KELLY have the resources and know-how, as well as a remarkable track record of hands on customer service, to help our members handle this important function.” MADA represents 340 automobile dealers throughout Maryland.

“We only recommend the best to our members and we have found that with KELLY,” said Anne Ferro, president and chief executive of MMTA, which represents more than 1,000 commercial trucking companies and related businesses.
