Bryan Manicke

Production Assistant

Madison, Wisconsin


Bryan has been with BPI Inc. since late May of 2013.  He is currently working in production at our Madison East location.  Bryan’s focus since joining BPI’s team has been large format scanning.  When not scanning, Bryan assists the Madison East team with usual production duties:  printing, laminating, scanning, and upkeep.

Previously, Bryan was employed at the Clarion Suites in Madison as a front desk manager, gaining a fair share of customer service skills and knowledge during his 9 year employment.  On the side, Bryan enjoys working on small computer repairs because of his extensive background in that area. As well, Bryan is enrolled in the Cisco Networking Specialization degree program at Madison College. 

Bryan is married to his wife of thee years, Lisa Manicke, a German language teacher employed within the Deforest School District.  In early September Bryan and Lisa bought a house on the east side of Madison where they live with their new puppy, Bilbo.  Bryan feels his free time is best  spent doing something mentally engaging, whether that be reading a good book, playing an involving computer game, working on a home project, trying to program his Raspberry-Pi microcomputer, or working on his car.

Chad Theis

Production Assistant

Madison, Wisconsin


Chad started working part time at BPI in the spring of 2009 and became a full time employee in the fall of that year.  He has worked at both the Madison locations, but now he is stationed on the west side doing production with Josh Crowe.

Chad went to Wisconsin Heights High School, which is the same high school that three other BPI employees attended: Matt Bennett, Josh Crowe, and Nic Haack.  Prior to BPI, Chad spent a lot of time in the golf industry.  For five years, Chad was the assistant manager at Golf Shack, where he sold and repaired golf equipment.  Chad also spent one summer doing golf course maintenance at Lake Wisconsin Country Club, which he enjoyed because of the insider’s view on what goes into making a golf course look the way it does.

Chad has four nieces and nephews under the age of 8 that he enjoys spending time with.  In his free time, Chad enjoys golfing, boating and working on his fitness.
