Brigette Breitenbach, president of Milwaukee-based B&Co., has owned her own company since 1996, initially becoming a business owner because companies weren’t open to employees with small children working remotely.

B&Co. serves clients primarily in the hospitality and real estate industries. Its very first client was The Iron Horse Hotel in Milwaukee. But while B&Co. has clients in Milwaukee, most of its projects are outside Wisconsin, including as far away as Greece. 

In 2008, Breitenbach became part owner of the Iron Horse Hotel and to this day considers herself to be a hotel junkie, delivering award-winning work for boutique hotels. 

B&Co. also works with lifestyle brands and B2B clients. Client Colleen Lake, assistant project manager for KPH Construction Corp., points to their diversity as how B&Co. survived and even thrived during the COVID-19 pandemic that temporarily shuttered many hotels.

“Between her business successes, her philanthropic work and her personal success as one of the best individuals I have ever had the pleasure of working with and calling my friend, Brigette Breitenbach is a force to be reckoned with in the Milwaukee area, and beyond,” Lake said.
