This week on Centric’s Biz and Tech Talks, we talk to our four founders, the Four Amigos, to reflect on the start of Centric Consulting and our 20 years together.
This year marks the 20th anniversary of the founding of Centric Consulting, although that wasn’t the name back then. The name’s changed, and so have a lot of other things. Or have they?
In this episode of Centric’s Biz and Tech Talks, we talk with the founders and long-time leaders of Centric, Dave Rosevelt, Eric Van Luven, Larry English, and Jeff Lloyd. With the Four Amigos as our guides, we go back to the early days of Centric to learn what it took to start a client- and consultant-centered firm back in those turbulent times. We look to separate the myths from the truth, but we also look at how the organization’s founding stories shaped how Centric serves its clients today.
Among the searching questions answered in this discussion:
- What was the company’s original name, and how did we land on Centric?
- What did the original logo look like, and why don’t we see it anymore?
- What was the origin of our famously non-hierarchical company hierarchy?
Learn the answers to these questions and more in this emotional, very special episode of Centric’s Biz and Tech Talks!
