Rhythm Systems combines a cloud-based software platform with the best practices of management consulting to help mid-market companies improve execution and accountability. “After starting several companies and being in the business world for many years, I realized that a lot of companies have great ideas, but can’t bring them to life,” says CEO Patrick Thean. “I started Rhythm Systems to help companies achieve their dreams.”

QUICK TIP: “Simple can be harder than complex. You have to work hard to get your thinking clean to make it simple. But it’s worth it in the end because once you get there, you can move mountains.” Steve Jobs

Rhythm Systems has benefited from finding an idea whose time had come. “A lot of companies really need that extra execution help, especially growing mid-market companies,” says Thean. “This need in the marketplace has allowed us to grow quickly because of the demand and customer retention.” The company’s culture has been another key ingredient of its growth formula. “When building this company, I’ve always put our culture and core values first,” says Thean. “By doing so, we’ve been able to recruit and hire talented people who get the work done in a low drama, fast-learning environment.”
