For Engineering CEOs Only

Take Your Company to the Next Level with CEN

You Don’t Have To Do It Alone

Benefit from the insights of other Engineering CEOs who have been down a similar path.

As the top managing partner executive of an architecture or engineering firm, you face a wide range of responsibilities on a daily basis. Whatever the macro environment, it is up to you to create new opportunities and seize the initiative.

It’s not easy when the rules are constantly shifting: how do you best harness new technologies, adopt new processes to improve service delivery and reduce costs, market and sell more effectively, leverage social media to create quality leads and create a culture of accountability?

Only by meeting with the CEOs & Managing Partners of similar businesses can you get unbiased advice and expert counsel. After all, they are the only other people who stand in the same shoes.

Proven ROI: Don’t Take Our Word for It

“When another CEO was discussing his bank line of credit, I discovered that I was paying 75 basis points more than the lowest rates (3/4 of 1% per year). The other CEOs gave me the names of their bankers who lend to our sector and offered to make introductions. When I went back to my bank and said I was going to be leaving and why — my local bank cut my interest rate by a whole point to retain my business. This was worth over $300,000 per year — over $2 million during the life of the loan.”
