Ann Duffer opened Ann Duffer Personnel at 1017 E. Main Street in downtown Richmond, placing residents in secretarial and clerical positions at legal and accounting firms. The business expanded greatly to include hiring for sales, accounting, data processing, programming, and public relations positions across insurance, manufacturing, computer, and medical industries. She also organized interview and career clinics for recent high-school and college graduates.
In September 1993, Ann opened Stat Temps Inc., a subsidiary of Ann Duffer Personnel, in the Westwood Office Park in Fredericksburg, Va. Ann served as President of the Fredericksburg office while her daughter, Cindy Duffer Matern, served as Vice President. Stat Temps Inc. offered temporary and permanent staffing to clerical and manufacturing industries.
They rebranded the business as Stat Employment to distinguish themselves as a full-service employment agency.
