Diversification and the development of full service lines of business for its existing clients have helped Brookfield-based Centare rocket forward in growth.

Last year, the company underwent a reorganization, as four managers in the firm came together and purchased Centare from former owners Dave and Becky Glyzewski.

“For the past eight months we’ve continued on the same growth path set in place over the past five years,” said Chad Albrecht, new chief executive officer of the company. “Our success as a company can be attributed to our business model and to the fact that we value our employees above and beyond anything else. We have a very people-centric organization, and by doing well by our employees we know we can pass that value on to the clients we work with as well.”

Since the company was established 15 years ago, its primary business has been technical consulting. Five years ago, Centare expanded into more full-service software development and agile training services, Albrecht said.

“In addition to our software development services, one of our biggest initiatives moving forward is the deployment of our full training platform for companies looking to transform into a people-centric organization like ours,” Albrecht said.

The business model extends beyond just business, too. According to Albrecht, being people-centric also means being community-centric; the company truly cares and invests in causes important to its employees.

“As a company, this mentality is a part of our DNA,” Albrecht said. “We try to improve the lives of everybody we come in contact with. If we can have a positive impact on our community – the world – it also builds cohesiveness here and has a profound impact on our team and the business we do.”

Albrecht expects the company’s Madison and Chicago offices to continue to grow organically, and Centare is also on the lookout for complementary business acquisition opportunities.
