He and his newlywed wife backpacked around the world as he tried to find his path in life–and he did. Shortly after returning home, he and his like-minded pals founded Centric with a focus on changing how consulting was done by building a remote company with a mission to create a culture of employee and client happiness. Today, Centric is a 1,000-plus person company with offices in 12 US cities and India.
