Green Bay, Wis. (June 14, 2024) – BAYCOM, a premier reseller and service provider of wireless voice and data communications and video surveillance solutions, has been recognized with a “Growth Award” by the Green Bay Chamber of Commerce. The top award was based on four criteria – BAYCOM’s growth, its impact, innovation and leadership.  

Headquartered in Green Bay, Wis., BAYCOM is a 100% employee-owned ESOP company that has grown significantly in the past few years. From 2019 to 2023, the company added more than 1,500 new customers, including public safety agencies, schools, healthcare institutions, manufacturers and other businesses. 

“Our exponential growth isn’t just about numbers; it’s about real-world impact. Since we provide mission-critical communication and security technology, we’re enhancing safety and connectivity within the communities we serve,” says Katie Busch, president of BAYCOM. 

As part of its growth strategy, BAYCOM has deepened its relationships with key suppliers, which has led to the expansion of its geography and product offerings. In addition, in 2022, BAYCOM opened a Lifeline Technology Center, just outside of Madison, Wis., that allows current and future customers to see, interact with and experience state-of-the-art technologies before investing in them.  

“Everyone at BAYCOM is proud of what we’ve been able to accomplish in terms of growth but what’s really exciting is the bottom-line results that our employee-owners receive since we’re an ESOP company,” says Busch. “As an ESOP, we all work together and have a common goal so each of our team members can secure their American dream. That’s what drives us each and every day.”
