Leaving a Legacy
As Centric Consulting’s Co-Founder and CEO from 1999 to 2023, Dave Rosevelt was a pivotal leader in building our company’s foundation, culture and longevity.
Dave started this company with the goal of putting company culture, clients and employees first. He envisioned a company where employees led a balanced lifestyle, nurtured their talents and interests, and shared his commitment to helping clients. That’s how our mission to provide unmatched experiences for clients and employees was born.
His vision has resulted in one of the best cultures in the consulting industry. In fact, we’ve been recognized over the years by many organizations and publications as a best place to work. Dave was even recognized among Glassdoor’s highest-rated CEOs based on employee satisfaction and honored with Consulting Magazine’s Lifetime Achievement Award.
You can see the evidence of Dave’s contribution to our core values and culture in every corner of the company. Dave was instrumental in developing our company-wide Diversity, Equity and Inclusion program, Centric Together, which focuses on evolving practices and culture to welcome and nurture a more diverse workforce.
He also contributed to our track record of creating longstanding, trusted relationships with clients, many of whom have been with us for over 20 years. Under Dave’s leadership, Centric saw an average of 10 percent growth year-over-year, a statistic that is sure to continue as part of his legacy.
In 2023, Dave officially retired as CEO, but he still plays an active role as a strategic advisor to the company. Otherwise, you can find him enjoying time with his family, traveling and cheering for the University of Michigan Wolverines. He remains connected to his life-long friends from Centric. He will remain forever ingrained in our culture.
