We have also been fortunate to be recognized by the US Department of Commerce, with APC founder Roy Roberts receiving the award at The White House.
Like so many great companies, Alliance of Professionals & Consultants (APC) traces its roots to a humble basement. In 1993, APC founder Roy Roberts started his company from home, using his pool table to sort payroll.
The company quickly took off, and what began as a humble, home-based company has grown into a global powerhouse. But one thing hasn’t changed – our values.

From the very beginning, our company’s focus has been on positively impacting the lives of others. One way in which we do so is by recognizing the efforts and contributions of our professionals as they positively impact our clients’ respective organizations, as well as APC itself. Here are some ways in which we do so:
A cornerstone is the primary foundation upon which great buildings, monuments, and institutions are built; quality, integrity, teamwork, attitude, and excellence are the foundation upon which APC’s success is built.
APC’s Cornerstone Award gives both APC leadership and our client managers the opportunity to acknowledge outstanding work. The Cornerstone Award is given to individuals for whom we receive positive feedback from our client managers, including those who receive nominations for the Waya Award.
The Waya Award is perhaps our most known recognition for professionals. On both a quarterly and annual basis, APC’s Waya Award honors a professional’s contributions and quality service to our client with special acknowledgement for their dedication and exemplary work.
Cherokee for “Wolf,” the Waya is a sacred animal to Native Americans and symbolizes family, teamwork, intelligence, dignity, respect, pride in work, loyalty, and success of a mission. Individuals who receive the Waya Award exemplify what it is to live these traits on a daily basis.
While participation is not limited solely to APC professionals, our Pass the Bucks program rewards individuals who help drive business growth for APC through new client referrals. Our employees are one of our best sales resources and the Pass the Bucks program provides a generous monetary award for efforts that lead to new business.
