An Entrepreneurial Venture
It might seem hard to believe that CentricsIT, a company that has done nearly $375 Million in sales since its inception, began as a six-person entrepreneurial venture out of the CFO’s basement—but it’s true. CentricsIT was founded in January 2007 when five high-level employees at one of the nation's largest IT resale firms resigned following a corporate buyout. The change in ownership signaled a shift toward an unattractive "big corporation" culture, which prompted action. CentricsIT's founding staff immediately grew to nine, and from there agreed to take a best-practices approach to the business. By removing the bureaucracy, applying lessons learned in the past, and weeding out ineffective processes, CentricsIT has built a loyal and growing client base.
CentricsIT, now located in a state-of-the-art office and distribution facility, has grown rapidly. It was named to CRN’s VAR500 (now SP500) in just its second year of business and has continued to climb the list ever since. The company has also been named to the Inc. 500|5000 list of America's fastest-growing private companies. Furthermore, Derek Odegard, the company President, was ranked fifth on Business to Business Magazine’s list of Top Atlanta Entrepreneurs. The company has grown from the original six to nearly 90 employees and has been honored twice with a place on the Atlanta Journal-Constitution’s list of Top Workplaces.
A Triple Threat
CentricsIT has expanded its hardware business to offer IT support services
as well as IT staffing solutions
helps companies of all sizes better manage their IT data centers by providing third-party maintenance
and support services
for the leading equipment manufacturers, including: IBM, HP, Dell, EMC, Sun Microsystems, Cisco, and more. Centrics Support
features flexible service level agreements, certified engineering support teams, and dedicated customer service representatives.
The Centrics Group
is an all-inclusive IT Staffing
Agency committed to bringing top employers together with top IT candidates. With the ever-increasing amount of technology available, a majority of IT recruiting
agencies have forgotten the value of personal relationships. Our in-house engineers pre-screen all job candidates and only the most qualified candidates are forwarded on to employers. It’s this type of customer-centric approach that makes The Centrics Group a unique provider in the competitive staffing space.
A Global Presence
CentricsIT does business with companies in North America, South America, Europe, Asia, Africa, and Australia. Our international sales reps work diligently (and on different time clocks!) to ensure CentricsIT can support our global clientele. CentricsIT is on a mission to become the leading international distributor of surplus technology and our international clients are an important component of our continued success.
In 2012, CentricsIT officially broke ground in Canada, opening an office in Toronto led by Vice President of Support Services Dave Massey.
