About The Paranet Group, Inc.

Paranet was founded in 1988 originally as The Paradigm Group.  The original name was changed rather quickly as it seemed the whole world was using the word “paradigm” for clubs, books, etc. After some brainstorming, the Group chose the word “Paranet.”  Originally the “A’s” were triangles, or the Greek letter delta standing for change. We thought we were very trendy as we began branding our name like this: PΔRΔNET with the first part of the name representing “change” and the last half representing our network. It took us about 3 years to cave into the fact that the triangles were confusing to most people and nearly impossible to replicate in letters, stationary, etc. People would ask, “What is P, triangle, P triangle Net?” So, we lightened up our name and now you see it as Paranet.

Linda Kiedrowski is CEO and Owner.  Her expertise in marketing, sales and finance helped to build the membership base.  Over the years, Linda has created, grown and facilitated several groups.  She has over 30 years of experience in group dynamics, facilitation and coaching.

In 2008, Kelly Rudy joined The Paranet Group as a Marketing Officer, then Vice President of Operations, and today she is President. Kelly earned her undergraduate degree at Loyola University in Chicago. Her MBA was earned at Marquette University in Milwaukee. While at Paranet, Kelly has created and facilitated new groups and grown the marketing side of our business.  

In March of 2011, The Paranet Group moved its Headquarters to its a new location in order to create an environment that matched our evolution. Prompted by continual growth, the relocation was designed to better-serve its members with state-of-the art training facilities, increased parking and upgraded office space.

In 2020, the COVID-19 Pandemic hit the whole world. Paranet changed to a virtual organization in 3 days. We learned that some things we thought could not be done virtually, absolutely could. We also learned that some things will always be better in-person. The major plus is that we were able to expand our groups geographically, thereby providing a greater network for our membership.

In July 2024, we moved our offices to a shared office space, 11220 W. Burleigh Street, Wauwatosa, Wisconsin.  This vibrant space promotes collaboration,  accommodates meetings of all sizes for coaching, advisory groups and learning events. 

Today, under The Paranet Group umbrella, we provide service and expertise in Confidential Advisory Groups, coaching services,  group/meeting facilitation, Leadership Training programs are available through our LeaderPRO Division.
