Emmett “Corky” Kaericher’s love affair for computers began in 1985. At the age of 15, he was unpacking computers and installing software for a computer store in the suburbs of Washington D.C. One day, a man in a suit that he didn’t recognize entered when all of the sales reps were away from the store for training. Corky sold his first five computers to the man and later delivered them (with the help of someone who was old enough to drive the van) to the Pentagon for the Joint Chiefs of Staff.
Today, Corky talks about the rise of micro-multinational companies and how they are now able to compete with Fortune 500 companies. Listen as he explains his “mercenary army” philosophy.

Emmett “Corky” Kaericher works to help many of the world’s best companies achieve their business goals from his off-grid, mountain top office in the beautiful Blue Ridge mountains of western North Carolina. He owns cats, dogs, horses and mules and lives life firmly on his own terms.
