    Great Job Jason, I recently heard about Centric and have had the pleasure of chatting with a few individuals inside the organization who were gracious enough to give me a few minutes of their time. This is a great interview with Larry, I don’t know him, but the topic of discussion, the transformation to a remote workforce being an essential offering as opposed to a nice to have, has been an area that i have been following closely and commenting on. I have not had a chance to read Larry’s book yet, but based on the discussion, i couldn’t agree more with his outlook backed by his experience building an outstanding firm.

    Great interview Jason!!
