Centricity today announced the inception of five new professional Inner Circles in New Jersey, that help service based professionals and business owners grow their businesses, while giving back to the community. This follows a year where the Company successfully launched its first two Inner Circles in Bridgewater and Bernardsville.

“We realized traditional business networking fails to deliver enough new customers to justify the time and cost for professionals and business owners. Quality customer referrals come from establishing trusted relationships with professionals who share the same target market. We further strengthen these relationships by having each of our Inner Circles support a local charity,” says Jay Kingley, CEO of Centricity. "The best relationships are based on shared values and giving back to the community where they do business. It’s a true win-win,” says Kingley.

Heartworks, based in Somerset County, receives unrestricted donations from the Somerset Hills Business Professional Association (SHBPA), an Inner Circle based in Bernardsville. “Knowing that we’re not only helping each other grow, but also supporting this amazing non-profit rallies the community as a whole. It’s a great fit!” says Chuck Hendershot, Founder of the Somerset Hills BPA.

“This support from local professionals demonstrates how businesses can really make a difference. We have been able to help a significant number of families in the community because of the SHBPA’s donations,” says Megan McDowell, Founder of Heartworks.

Inner Circles allow local professionals to build meaningful relationships that spur customer referrals and professional support. These professionals not only deepen their network, but they learn how to maximize their new found relationships. “We’re going beyond networking and deepening the ties of the members. We also optimize the referral process, so business flows between members. The results have exceeded our expectations but we’re just getting started,” says Kingley.

New Inner Circles are now forming in Lebanon, Paramus, Basking Ridge, Medford and Morristown. Areas of focus range from professional services to the food and events industry. For more information go to joincentricity.com
