Doug Albrecht

Doug Albrecht retired in 2007 as Chairman, President and Chief Executive of Centric Group, a $750 million holding company. Centric Group grew from an initial Taylor family investment in Jack Keefe Coffee Bar Sales, a two-employee business in hotel/motel in-room coffee sales. Albrecht expanded the business to include food and personal product sales to correctional facilities, eventually growing the business to a 2,000 employee nationwide network of distribution and sales centers with products ranging from Victorinox brand luggage to mylar balloons to clear-case televisions (for the prison market). Albrecht, a Minnesota native, was an All-Big 8 baseball player at the University of Missouri-Columbia. Following graduation, he spent his entire 33-year business career working for the Taylor family. Since his retirement, Albrecht is serving as Chairman of Bodley Group.
