Fast Five: Leeward Business Advisors

2016 Ovation Awards


Leeward Business Advisors
Industry: Technology consulting
Address: 5455 Sheridan Road, Kenosha
Employees: 16


In just under two years of operation, Kenosha-based Leeward Business Advisors has grown its Kenosha office from two to 16 employees, and has made the decision to expand its operations to Madison, as well.

“The business started with just myself and Jason Klein, chief technology officer,” said Michael Polzin, chief executive officer of the company. “Our mission and vision for the company is to make enterprise class technologies available to the broader market.”

According to Polzin, legacy technology providers do not adequately serve the average business. Yet so much of business success depends on technology, he said.

Leeward Business Advisors continues to grow and expand its offerings to better serve its customer base.

“Our goal is to listen to our customers, discover what they need, and implement solutions so they can focus on the business,” Polzin said.

Leeward Business Advisors is an employee-owned business, which makes for a strong and powerful culture, Polzin said.

“Our growth happens because of our owners,” he said. “Kenosha has provided us with the types of employees we want to have come in and offer ownership to. You can’t get that everywhere, and for that we are eternally grateful because it’s a big part of our success story.”
