That was a scary statement for me. The first time I heard it I thought it was true.
At that time, I was struggling with the reality of my educational and vocational path since it seemed to meander without a defined purpose. I embraced the fact that my leadership experiences in multiple industries, an Executive MBA, and a completed doctoral program prepared me in a unique way for my current full time vocational ministry role at Pleasant Valley Baptist Church as the Director of Church and Community Engagement. Everyday I have the opportunity to listen, learn, and support people in their spiritual journey, their engagement with the Gospel. God has used relational, educational and vocational experiences to grow in me a passion for shepherding marketplace leaders in their pursuit of keeping trust in the center of their organizations.
The love of my life and the people I’m most thankful to spend my life with fortunately all live under the same roof as me! My wife Jamie, and my kids Cailyn (18), Isaac (16), Evan (10), and Levi (9) represent all that is good in this world: unconditional love, unending energy, and unlimited humor. Blessed does not even begin to fully describe the gift that God has given me in my family.
The influence of my family, my friends and my trusted business partners, the people who matter most to me, are the reason TrustCentric is about WE, not about ME.
"A decade into the life of my brand development firm, our core offering had been shifting with the market. To capitalize and stay relevant, we turned to TrustCentric Consulting. Its method, counsel and strategies helped us build a stronger foundation of trust, see our best path forward and identify how to get there. It was the catalyst to reposition the business and the result has been explosive growth. It's a testament to Cory and the Trust Centric way." - Kurt Bartolich, Founder and CEO of BrandCertain
