Headquartered in Denver, the agency has more than 50 team members throughout the U.S., with a global reach across 60 countries through membership in PROI, the industry’s largest partnership of independent agencies.
For more than two decades, GFM|CenterTable has steadfastly celebrated our work/life blend and our autonomous and entrepreneurial culture. We have been recognized 10 consecutive times by Outside magazine as one of the Best Places to Work in America and the agency is the longest-tenured company nationwide to be listed in the top 10. We encourage our team members to work when, where and how it works best for their lifestyle (ski lifts and hiking trails included). That includes “Trusted Time Off” unlimited vacation days, “Zero-Entry Mondays” and “Fast Exit Fridays” that help team members ease into and out of the workweek, quarterly mental health days, dedicated team and individual coaching resources working with the Enneagram and a focus on building whole-brain teams using Emergenetics — among other perks.
Giving back to our communities is deeply embedded in our DNA. Whether through our Get Grounded volunteer program, which encourages team members to donate time and energy to causes that are important to them, or through our private 501(c)3 Get Grounded Foundation, which to date has provided nearly $400,000 in micro grants in the areas of child abuse and neglect prevention, youth behavioral health and childhood hunger relief. Our agency leadership and team members are committed to leaving our community better than we found it.

We believe that together we can make business a force for good and share it with the world.
In addition to our culture-driven non-traditional benefits, the agency offers a suite of traditional benefits along with an annual bonus plan and a referral program.
