Happy 11th Birthday Centro!

Eleven years ago today Centro came to life.

I had no idea if it would be successful or a colossal failure but I felt passionately about trying to build a better type of company while also changing the advertising industry for the better.  Eleven years later, not only have we built a company we can be proud of, we’re also on our way to having a significant and lasting positive impact on the industry forever.

I have endless appreciation for our many partners and clients. It is they who have inspired us to work hard, strive for perfection, and be our best. They have enabled Centro to mature into the successful company we are today.

But the overwhelming share of my gratitude goes to all the people who have worked so hard for 11 years to make Centro great.

Building a company represents powerful extremes in one’s life.  There are great benefits to starting, building and running a company but there are also many powerful and difficult hardships.  It’s not easy to build any company, and it’s even harder to build a company going strong, and increasing its strength, 11 years into it.  Yet through the efforts of so many passionate and dedicated Centrons, here we are on our eleventh birthday, getting better, growing and still gaining strength.

My deepest thanks and best wishes for a successful 11th year!!!
