“We are very excited about our partnership with Concord Consulting. They bring new marketing perspectives and provide us with more global capabilities, products and services. We look forward to a mutually beneficial relationship.” 

According to DeWayne Fliss, President of Concord Consulting, “we’ve regarded both Larry and CCi Direct Connect® as standouts in the 360 feedback industry. We believe in providing our clients with world class products and service and CCi fits the bill on both counts. We’re very happy to have Larry join our team.”

Since 1976, Minnesota based CCi Surveys International has been providing survey design and developmental feedback to personnel at all levels within business, industry, education, and governmental organizations. Domestic and international consultants have used the unique survey design of their CCi Direct Connect® software to develop and administer their own surveys in any language, giving them a clear competitive edge.

He is a three-time award winning author of the book, Building Performance-Based 360-Degree Assessments: From Design to Delivery, which was published in 2009. Cipolla has been a keynote and plenary speaker at numerous international human resource symposiums on various topics, especially on performance-based 360-feedback.
