Our Foundation – A Desire to Do Better and Be Better
There wasn’t one defining moment when Larry English realized there could be “more” to working in consulting. As a dedicated employee at an international consulting company, it was a slow build up to what he calls his “midlife crisis at the age of 25.”
Regular 100-hour work weeks. Watching the personal lives of colleagues and mentors suffer as they missed soccer games, dance recitals and date nights. Delivering client work and not taking the time to get to know the people behind the project… It all became too much.
So Larry pushed pause. He left, and together with his wife, backpacked around the world for a year. He returned with a beard, long hair and inspiration to become an entrepreneur.
The idea for Centric Consulting started on a couch that is now a symbol of our culture.
On this couch, Larry, together with his two longtime friends and colleagues – Dave Rosevelt and Eric Van Luven – conceived the idea for a different kind of consulting firm that would allow them and their employees to get more out of life and make a better impact on those around them.
