Discussing Capitalism, Disruption, and the Art of Listening

Doug Clark, Founder, CEO, and Chairman of Corcentric, traces his path from farm boy to head of a successful technology company.

We often wonder how successful people achieve that status. Recently, Doug Clark sat down with business journalist, Ray Hoffman, who hosts a This Is Capitalism podcast series featuring a wide variety of CEOs, to explain his journey from a small farm in south New Jersey to his current situation as founder, CEO, and Chairman of Corcentric.

Throughout his life experiences, what becomes clear in this podcast is Doug’s willingness and eagerness to listen…to mentors, to colleagues, and to customers. Whether it’s digging out from the flood of paper that businesses were drowning in during the 60s and 70s; aggregating the purchasing power of small companies when they band together as an organization; or growing a technology company, Doug has always understood both the risks and rewards that can be achieved by following what customers want; not what you think they want. 

Listen to Doug as he explains how Corcentric follows his belief in the power of listening by helping our customers spend less time on back-office paperwork so they can spend more time listening to their customers.
