Managing Partner & CEO

Centri Business Consulting LLC

Location: Philadelphia, PA

Founded: 2011

Industry: Advisory

Michael Aiello is the chief executive officer and managing partner of Centri Business Consulting LLC, an advisory firm based in Philadelphia and founded in 2011.

Centri Business Consulting’s knowledge includes financial reporting, internal controls, technical accounting research, valuation, mergers and acquisitions and CFO and HR advisory services.

Under Aiello’s leadership, Centri achieved a remarkable 42% year-over-year organic growth in 2022, setting new records for success, the company said. Th e fi rm also reached its target revenue goal of $35 million. Centri witnessed a 50% increase in personnel, emphasizing the firm’s commitment to talent acquisition and expanding its workforce.

Centri expanded its service lines to include new areas such as ESG, IT and cybersecurity, as well as real estate. This diversification reflects its ability to adapt to changing market dynamics, seize opportunities and meet evolving client needs, the company said. Th e fi rm also expanded its national footprint by opening regional offices in Tyson’s Corner, Virginia; Raleigh, North Carolina; and Tampa, Florida, further strengthening its market presence.

“As a leader, the most important risk I took, and still take, is to embrace and evolve with change,” Aiello said. “Over the last few years, the firm implemented aggressive growth strategies amidst a time of unprecedented change, including venturing into new markets, expanding our service offerings and hiring talent. This decision required a bold vision and a willingness to embrace uncertainty as we navigated and adapted to rapidly shifting market demands.

“By seizing this risk, we positioned our organization to capitalize on emerging opportunities, diversify our revenue streams and create significant value for our stakeholders. Through strategic planning, agile execution and effective change management, we successfully pushed our organization forward, establishing ourselves as a leader in the industry and driving sustainable growth.

“Centri aims to achieve another 40% growth in top-line revenue in the coming years, expanding into key market areas down the East Coast and adding additional service offerings and industry verticals. By fostering a culture of innovation and continuous improvement, Centri intends to ensure that it remains at the forefront of its industry,” the firm said.

Aiello said he is honored to be recognized among the Titan 100 honorees and values the opportunity to foster meaningful relationships and partnerships within a community of like-minded entrepreneurs.

Aiello finds inspiration in a quote by Henry Ford, “Be ready to revise any system, scrap any method, abandon any theory, if the success of the job requires it.”
