Embarking on the Entrepreneurial Journey
- Jacquelyn Adams
Larry English is president and cofounder of Centric Consulting, a management consulting firm that guides you in the search for answers to complex digital, business, and technology problems. Before Centric Consulting, Larry worked for a large international consulting firm out of college until he got burned out at 25. 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. Larry is father to four boys and husband to an adventurous wife. They reside in Columbus, Ohio.
Larry is author of Office Optional: How to Build a Connected Culture with Virtual Teams. He is donating the proceeds from Office Optional to improving the digital divide. To learn more about him and how to become an office optional company, visit LarryEnglish.net.
