Boston, MA / Miami, Fl / St. Louis, MO JUNE 6, 2018 – ProHCM, a Boston based company, and Miami-based Centro HCM, are proud to announce the successful completion of their merger. The combined company will operate under the name Centro Group with headquarters in Miami; additional offices in the Boston and St. Louis areas. Centro Group is a full service, wholesale group benefits, human capital, and technology service consulting firm committed to positioning their clients for future growth.
“The opportunity for employers to substantially improve HR is greater than ever,” says Chris Green, Centro Group’s CEO. “The opportunity today exists due to the same influencers that changed the telecom, television, and telephone industries in the early 2000’s – government legislation, innovative technology, and increasing pressures to focus on core elements of everyone’s business are outpacing most employers’ ability to take advantage of the opportunity, leaving organizations lagging behind. Our operation was built to get employers to the next level and beyond, quickly, and cost effectively, by leveraging market leading technology with a ‘white glove’ service model.”
Joe Markland, President of Centro Group, commented, “What really drew me towards Centro was our shared vision of where the HR Tech and HR industries are going. We see new technologies like artificial intelligence, employee engagement tools, machine learning, and blockchain, as technology and tools that can substantially change HR. Our combined organization can make this a reality for employers.”
Centro Group will leverage local office presence across 150 markets in the domestic United States, while providing them with large company resources equal to or greater than the largest players in the industry . The 2018 plan is to focus on strengthening their technology and HR service platforms for their existing partners, while strategically adding new members.
“In a competitive marketplace, we have created tools for benefits brokers to defend their book of business and retain their clients through our disruptive offering,” said Dan McAlone, President of Business Development for Centro Group. “Our combination of HR and human capital management offerings ensure that their clients do not need to look anywhere else. We work to set them apart from any other benefits broker on the market.”
“Our approach to human resources sets itself apart in the way that we offer HR technology, group benefIts and leading-edge HR all within the same company,” said Nadine Rastelli, President of Strategic HR. “Our expert group of seasoned professionals is ready to partner with our clients to tackle the HR issues that are keeping them up at night through high-touch, on-demand, tailored services to build and strengthen their companies.”
