The founder of one of the world’s largest payroll processing firms died on Thursday.
Henry Taub started Automatic Data Processing (ADP) to relieve business owners of administrative functions, including payroll processing, so they could focus on expanding their companies, said an ADP news release.
"Today, the ADP family lost a dear colleague, mentor and friend. His contributions to the success of the company he founded were many, including expanding the company's footprint beyond payroll into the brokerage and dealer services businesses," said Gary Butler, ADP president and chief executive officer. “Henry was a true luminary with a relentless passion for empowering businesses to realize their vision and a focus on exceptional client service. “
Taub died at Mount Sinai hospital in New York City. He was 83.
