Penrod’s Best of 2016

12/28/16

 

What a year it’s been! We’ve reminisced & celebrated the accomplishments of the past 12 months & are grateful for the partnerships, hard work, & dedication that have made it possible. Penrod’s 2016 has been filled with immense growth, internal development, & flourishing relationships.

“We are incredibly grateful for our crew & the hustle they put in to hone their craft. Dedicated doesn’t even begin to cover it.”

Joseph Taylor, Co-Founder & President, Penrod

 

Growth

We’ve welcomed incredible new talent quadrupling our total employees, allowing for greater coverage across the nation. During this year of growth, we’ve opened a satellite office in Chicago, strategically placing us closer to our Salesforce.com partners. We’ve also finishing renovating a 12,800 square foot expansion of our Milwaukee headquarters to accommodate the further employee growth we expect to see over the next year.

 

 

 

Award Winning Team We’ve seen many exciting accomplishments over the past year, but there’s no denying that making the Inc 5000 List of America’s Fastest Growing Companies was one we’ll never forget. Because of our ongoing partnership with Salesforce, our growing client base & our dedicated team, Penrod was named the 550th fastest growing company in the nation. With ongoing investment in both our internal & external partnerships, we expect to beat that number year-over-year!

 

“I work at Penrod because of the continuous investments within our own team…I have been given the essential tools to obtain new personal & professional opportunities.”

Katy Engebretson, Account Executive, Penrod

This year reinforced our belief that it is through our commitment to employee development & our strong relationships with clients & partners that Penrod has been able to achieve a year of such success. We look forward to 2017 – a year of continued growth, development & knowledge-sharing, leading us all to even greater achievements! Penrod values the knowledge & expertise that every employee offers & takes pride in the people-centered culture that we’ve created. In 2016 we were awarded Bubbler’s Best Place to Work for Young Professionals in Wisconsin award, & plan to continue providing an engaging & supportive work environment.

 

Investing in Experience

In the past year, Penrod has also expanded its knowledge & industry expertise by attending Salesforce’s Dreamforce 2016. This opportunity was not just offered to Penrod’s top executives, but to employees of any level that worked to gain Salesforces certifications throughout the year. Sitting in on keynotes with Marc Benioff or Melinda Gates, learning about new features like Einstein & participating in breakout sessions that covered topics from Service Cloud to CPQ were just a few of our trip highlights! Because we felt the knowledge we took away was so valuable, we wanted to further educate our customers by hosting 1:1 local events with our salesforce.com partners in both Chicago & Milwaukee.
