Robert Offley is the founder and CEO of Centrilogic, a global provider of IT transformation solutions that empower organizations to realize their digital potential. Robert originally formed Centrilogic as a data center provider, but today the company delivers capabilities that span the technology stack, including multi cloud management, next-gen applications, and managed SaaS services. This enables Centrilogic to deliver resilient end-to-end digital solutions that help companies reshape the role of their technology platforms as business-driving assets. Robert’s unique approach to delivering digital transformation makes Centrilogic one of the few global technology organizations able to develop platform-agnostic solutions that maximize clients’ immediate business opportunities and create purpose-built roadmaps that help them achieve their long-term digital potential. One of Robert’s strongest leadership qualities is his vision for the company and his dogged focus on growth. Since its founding in 2007, Centrilogic has significantly expanded its offerings from its original core data center expertise to be a global provider of IT transformation solutions. Centrilogic has experienced strong growth organically and through acquisitions. Over the last eight years, Robert has led Centrilogic through several acquisitions. Most recently, Centrilogic acquired two firms in 2020: ManageForce and ObjectSharp. The strategic acquisitions allowed Centrilogic to strengthen its application and database management service capabilities and its cloud services practice, enabling the company to help businesses create, re-factor and re-architect applications for the cloud and leverage new technologies. As a result of the acquisitions and organic growth, Centrilogic has increased global revenues by 54% year-over-year and added more than 75 customers. The business has also expanded its roster of global partners and increased headcount by 73% to nearly 250 employees in just one year. In May 2021, Robert and Centrilogic unveiled their expanded suite of offerings, showcasing Centrilogic’s IT portfolio and differentiators, particularly the company’s ability to apply diverse industry knowledge through end-to-end capabilities. Centrilogic’s expertise has been further validated by the International Data Corp., which named Centrilogic a “Major Player” for the fifth time in the IDC MarketScape: Canadian Cloud Professional Services 2021 Vendor Assessment. Robert is a master of leading by example. Since founding Centrilogic nearly 15 years ago, Robert has been on a mission to help organizations become the best digital versions of themselves. Unlike many vendors that take a cookie-cutter approach, Robert knew from the start that organizations need a technology partner that deeply understands their business and can address all of their business goals. Through its early stages as a data center provider to its evolution today into a global provider of IT transformation solutions, Robert grew his company through an unrelenting commitment to putting client relationships first. Following Robert’s lead, Centrilogic embeds itself deeply in a client’s business to understand their unique culture, digital environment, and business aspirations. With these insights, Centrilogic can properly assess their current business challenges, address their specific needs and goals with personalized transformation solutions and applications, and manage these changes after deployment to help organizations optimize digital potential for long-term success. Robert guides his employees to understand technology’s critical role as a business enabler – and the corresponding pressures facing IT decision makers to anticipate and navigate rapid business and technology shifts. He leads his group in seeing possibilities other companies don’t, making it possible to help their clients transition legacy systems to future-proofed solutions. With every partnership, Robert encourages his team to recognize the privilege in helping a company realize its digital potential. Whether onboarding a new customer, managing an existing one, or supporting a customer facing department, Robert and Centrilogic are constantly asking themselves what other opportunities they can provide to their client. The team at Centrilogic challenges each other to think outside of the box with each customer experience.
