SRB Consulting, Inc., The Beginning
Awhile back there were three guys who had a dream to start a company, produce a great product, then eventually sell out to the highest bidder and become millionaires. On one of their determined searches for venture capital money, the important person they were to meet wanted to know how he would find them in the hotel lobby. He was told to look for the three short round boys. The joke was that the three of them could exchange clothes, they were so close in size. You may have gathered by this description that these guys did not have the coveted "leading man" physique but from this came the inspiration for the name of Gary Warden's present company, SRB Consulting.
Perhaps you have already discerned that, although they came close, the three short round boys were never able to obtain funding for their grand adventure. Out of necessity, then, SRB Consulting was started. Few people ask what the initials stand for, but, if you are one of those who are curious the answer is "short round boys."
Gary Warden is the owner, president and CEO of SRB Consulting, Inc. In order to fill in the financial gap while pursuing the "dream company," SRB Consulting was started in the summer of 1996. The company supported Gary and others through 2003 until Gary became part of another company. Today, SRB Consulting has been resurrected. It is our intention that this rebirth will provide valuable, relevant and state of the art services for our customers.
