One Team — Growing Together

A look back at 25 years of Info-Pro

A simple conversation with a client in 1997 sparked Louis J. Andrew Jr. to start a company to help lenders handle real estate tax services more efficiently while reducing the risks resulting from inaccurate data and missed payments.

Over the past 25 years, the Andrew family and Info-Pro’s dedicated, caring, and responsive staff have developed intelligent solutions to complex problems, helping hundreds of community banks and credit unions manage their loan portfolios with less effort, improved accuracy, and reduced risk.

A walk through time: 25 Years of Info-Pro

Leadership: How it started…How it’s going

Debbie McFarlane, Vice President of People and Talent

Twenty-five years ago, I was working in Human Resources at Johnsonville Sausage. We were living outside of Fond du Lac and raising our young family. The kids kept us busy with trips to waterparks and Disney (ok – maybe we wanted to do those things too! 😊)

Twenty-five years ago, I was a senior in high school and preparing to go off to college in the Fall. I was wrapping up my last year of high school baseball and looking forward to enjoying one last summer with high school friends before going our separate ways. Little did I know that seven years later I would be waving goodbye to this lovely mop of hair forever.

Kris Pelot, President & COO

Twenty-five years ago, I was busy planning my wedding to my husband, Ryan. We were also purchasing our first home around that time, so it was very exciting for us. We were married at Presentation Church in North Fond du Lac, Wisconsin, and had a blast celebrating with family and friends at our wedding. Ryan was just getting started in Management in the grocery industry, and I was working in Quality Engineering at Giddings and Lewis, a manufacturing company. Not long after this picture, I started working in the Guaranty Service Group family of companies at Guaranty Closing & Title 20 years ago. How time flies! I’m so proud and grateful to be a part of Info-Pro and the GSG family of businesses for all of these years. Congrats Info-Pro on 25 years, and here’s to the next 25! Cheers!

Chad Raube, CEO

Around the time of Info-Pro’s founding, I was in my mid-twenties. These years were highlighted by my graduation from Carleton College, where I enjoyed playing football, teaching English in Russia, taking on my first serious job to help lead a new cable television venture in New Zealand, and beginning my MBA at the Harvard Business School. My life was full of promise and potential, much like Info-Pro’s future at that time. I was working hard to get a good start on my career, having fun along the way exploring new places, learning as much as I could, and making new friends.

Mark Daniels, Senior Vice President of Sales, Marketing, & Account Management

In 1997 my wife and I were getting used to being parents of two instead of just one, what a difference! I had to do a little less golfing and a little more diaper changing, but I wouldn’t traded that change for the world!
