Hello Centrify Community,


Charles_C here, I manage the Customer Success Team for the Centrify Identity Service.  The last 2 and 1/2 years at Centrify have been a blast.  My focus is to ensure the Customer Success Managers (CSMs) assist in maximizing each customers' investment in the Centrify Identity Platform.  

I am also a Project Management Professional (PMP) and Six Sigma Green Belt.  My passion is to help customers with their most valuable assets, employees, by securing their identities from cyberthreats.... so p
lease do not hesitate to ask questions, happy to assist.

ps.  Currently, I reside in the East Bay with my wife.  I love to cook, which is good because with three teenage boys at home, they love/live to eat (yikes!).  


Take care,

Greetings Centrify Community!


My name is Eddie Welch, I was born in NY but mostly grew up in Atlanta, GA.

I am a CIS (Centrify-Identity-Service) Systems Engineer specialist - I have recently joined the Centrify team in January 2017. My background is mostly in web development, implementation & consulting. I have always enjoyed collaborating within teams to solve problems and I love to figure out why things work the way they do (both in and away from work.) My wife and I have a young daughter named Ryleigh, who is not quite 2yrs old yet, she is our world. As painful as history can be to the city of Atlanta, I still proudly call myself a true fan of all ATL sports teams. I am both excited and humbled to work amongst such a talented and motivated set of individuals here @Centrify! Looking forward to the days, weeks, months ahead...

Hello Centrify Community!


As a recent addition to the Centrify team as the Systems Engineer for the Channel, I'm very excited to be aboard. Prior to this past November, I had spent four years with Hewlett-Packard Enterprise as an ArcSight SIEM SE, were I had the opportunity to pursue my MBA, PMP, CISSP, CEH, and others. 


In my free time, I enjoy being outdoors with my Wife and Son, training for a triathlon or two to remain active, and fishing in the beautiful waters near Chattanooga, TN. Although originally born in the great state of Texas, I've made my rounds through the Midwest, living in the Boston area for a while, back to TX and now proud to call TN my permanent home. 


In my short tenure, I've come to greatly appreciate Centrify's product from both an Engineering perspective and that of an end-user. From day one, I've had access to what I needed, when I needed it, and through a secure method, which my years in this space of taught me is critical. As time continues, I'll join in company of our many Channel Account Representatives as I provide both sales and technical product enablement - which I refer to as 'spreading the good word.'
