Bringing Technology to the Back Office: Timing and Taking Risks
Conversations with Doug Clark, Corcentric Chairman and CEO
“I got on a plane, went to the offices of the private equity, did a stock swap, and owned Corcentric when I left that office.”
In this series of interviews, Corcentric Chairman and CEO Doug Clark recalls a big risk that paid off. The bold move is an important part of Corcentric’s history and the company’s ability to serve thousands of customers today. One of those customers Clark highlights is Daimler Trucks North America. The major manufacturer realized it was time for a higher level of digital expertise, and Corcentric’s Payables automation solution turned out to be the perfect match.
Clark also discusses how he was ahead of his time when it came to his belief that digital processing would revolutionize the back office.
