From Nonprofit to For-Profit: A Story of Organizational Transformation
MILWAUKEE- Sept 30th, 2011 – FEI Behavioral Health, a leading Milwaukee-based crisis management, EAP, and wellness services company, will present an engaging workshop at the 2011 NIB/NAEPB Annual Training Conference. This session will outline how a nonprofit program, at a nonprofit membership organization, has reinvented itself multiple times over the past 30 years to become a multimillion-dollar, for-profit business, owned by a social enterprise.
FEI President and CEO, Ted Uczen, will present, “Business Diversification: Creating New Lines of Business While Managing Current Business,” on Thursday, Oct. 6, at 1:45pm. This session will highlight the successes FEI has been able to achieve and maintain since 1979, and the tools for how this has been accomplished. In particular, the workshop will present a case study done on FEI that will explain how to:
•develop new and related products/services for existing customers and challenged markets
•venture into new markets to create new marketing and sales approaches
•transform and grow the business while still executing at a high rate for existing customers
