CBIZ was founded in 1996 as a result of the merger between
Republic Environmental Systems and Century Surety Group. The two
companies combined to become International Alliance Services, Inc.
(IASI). In December 1997, IASI changed its name to Century Business
Services, Inc. Often referred to as "CBIZ" due to its NASDAQ ticker
symbol, the company legally changed its name to CBIZ, Inc. in
August 2005. CBIZ began trading on the New York Stock Exchange in
August 2006 under the symbol "CBZ."

Hoffman McCann P.C. In 1998, MHM spun off its tax and consulting
