“In addition to building beautiful products that change and improve industries, I started Centro with the belief we can redefine what it means to be a mission-driven and purpose-led corporation. Giving back and being in service to each other, to our customers, and to the communities in which we serve is foundational to who we are.”
— Shawn Riegsecker, Founder & CEO
To create a model corporation that will be used as a blueprint for an improved Corporate America of the future.
To create a successful corporation which contributes to the health and well-being of the community through continual dedication to the personal growth and self-development of every team member.
Lasting happiness is achieved through continuous personal growth and self- improvement. We are committed to continuous investment in the growth of our team members while, at the same time, requiring each team member to actively take responsibility for their own self-development and well-being.
Do the Right Thing
We are guided by our moral compasses, which innately know the difference between right and wrong. We never compromise our integrity. We stand for what is just and right and hold ourselves to a high level of ethical standards.
Cultivate Raving Fans
We create Raving Fans of our customers and of each other. Doing this requires a constant commitment to the service, happiness, and satisfaction of others. If our customers aren’t raving about our people and our products, we have not achieved the level of customer happiness we strive for.
Change is the only constant. In a fast-moving world and industry, we seek, embrace and get comfortable that if we’re not continuously changing, evolving and improving, we’re falling behind. No two years will ever look the same at Centro.
Believe Impact is Possible
We create lasting and positive impact in the communities and industries in which we operate. When we work hard, stay focused and act in service to others, we believe anything and everything is possible. We are limited only by our imaginations and our effort.
We recognize there is no such thing as “individual success” in life. We are magnanimous in victory and acknowledge those who have helped us along the way. Healthy team chemistry, creativity and collaboration is critical to achieving our goals. We check our egos at the door.
Support Each Other
We are committed to building an encouraging, caring, and supportive environment. We share a responsibility to help our team members and do what we can to help support them and enrich their lives.
Work Ethic Wins
We hire the best and brightest minds in the industry. But we also know that intelligence means nothing unless it’s paired with incredible effort and a strong work ethic. The teams and companies willing to put in the extra effort, go the extra mile and be held accountable will be the ones who see their visions and dreams realized.
Working hard, building amazing products, and achieving success is an exhilarating and exciting way to live life. However, we also recognize the importance of keeping life in perspective. Making sure we’re consistently finding peace and joy along our journey is an invaluable component to sustainable and lasting success.
