The Sipples have presided over a period of growth, since 2005 expanding from a regional business to also providing services to a wide range of national and global companies. The 4C Recruiting Process™ guides the search for executives and business leaders, identifying the best fit in the areas of Character, Culture, Chemistry and Competency.

Under Mike Sr.’s leadership the focus has always been on the health of the business as well as the health of their family. In his own words - “I can replace a business partner, I can’t replace a son.” As such, the Sipples have worked tirelessly to learn how to communicate better and to hear and understand each other. This extends beyond their biological family to their core support group of employees and advisors, all of whom have played valuable roles in the succession strategy.

In 2015, Mike Sipple Jr. now succeeds his father in the role of President of Centennial. He will be supported by T.J. Bugg in his new role as Executive Vice President, as well as through the continued support of Mike Jr.’s mom Susan Sipple (Vice President, Secretary/Treasurer) and Becky Scheeler (Vice President of Client Engagement). Centennial is also pleased to announce the addition of Julie Warden as Director of Client Services. Mike Sr. will continue his role as CEO.

He serves in a variety of leadership capacities including the executive committee for the 2015 ACG Great Lakes Capital Connection, Professional Leadership Network and Cincinnati’s Forty Under 40 Alumni Network.

Our community and clients are better because of Centennial’s commitment and involvement over the last 40 years. With an exceptional leadership team in place and a continued strategy for success through relationships, Centennial is poised to continue that legacy.
