Steve Trecha

Integrated Strategies, headed by president and CEO Steve Trecha (BS Egr Arts ’80, MBA Materials and Logistics Management ’82), has been recognized as one of the 2011 “Michigan 50 Companies to Watch,” an awards program sponsored by the Edward Lowe Foundation and presented by Michigan Celebrates Small Business. The company was honored at the seventh annual Michigan Celebrates Small Business event, held April 28 in Lansing, Mich.

Integrated Strategies’ clients routinely achieve and sustain double-digit value creation across their supply chains. Value is measured in real price/cost reductions, revenue enhancement, asset utilization, process improvements and employee job enrichment. “We teach a man to fish, and they have fun doing it” says Trecha.

Founded in 1990, Integrated Strategies has worked globally with more than 75 organizations. Most recently, Integrated Strategies worked with the Michigan Department of Corrections to transform their supply chain operations. Teams have achieved double-digit cost reductions in food service and offender transport, saving citizens millions of dollars.

Integrated Strategies also was awarded the 2010 Detroit Regional Chamber of Commerce On the RISE Innovative Product/ Service Award. The On the RISE program annually recognizes companies for their achievements and contributions to the community.
