Congratulations to Karen J. Martinez!

We are so proud of Karen, our President & CEO of BRAVO! Group Services and C-K Control Temp, on her selection as one of the NJBIZ 2021 Best 50 Women in Business.

Who runs the world: The 2021 Best 50 Women in Business honorees

For the past 24 years, Karen has been a proven leader and visionary in both the janitorial and HVAC services industries, having built a $120 million enterprise comprised of BRAVO! Group Services (facility support services) and C-K Control Temp (HVAC/Mechanical/Building Automation services division of BRAVO!).  Karen created a revolution in the facility solutions industry by setting a strong example with her motto, “Do what you say you are going to do” and striving to deliver 100% of her company’s promises.  Karen’s corporate initiatives include providing ongoing award-winning training for her employees, creating opportunities for internal professional advancement, and supporting company participation in community service…all which positively contribute to the success and continuous growth of the corporation.

“I am extremely honored to be selected as one of the NJBIZ Best 50 Women in Business,” stated Karen.  “As a female entrepreneur of Hispanic heritage, I strive to be an example of what can be achieved through determination and hard work.  Our successful completion of six acquisitions since 1997 has made us stronger and savvier, as well as given us the amazing talent and technical skills that allowed us to build on our strategy to be the best at what we do.  Small businesses and entrepreneurs are the engines needed in order to drive Capitalism in our great country.  It gives me both inspiration and joy to mentor others who are starting out to learn to make an impact, achieve success, and never take anything for granted.”
