notthebigcompany Story

Let’s begin by talking about where we came from and how we got here.

In 1921, Rockwell Clancy founded the nation’s first alumni directory publisher, the Rockwell F. Clancy Company. Over the years, three generations of Clancy’s have helmed the company that would become PCI, staying true to a single goal: Not to be the biggest, but to be the best.

And here we are. These ideals have taken root and formed notthebigcompany. Why notthebigcompany? Because The Big Company is the antithesis of everything we don’t want to be. Big. Impersonal. Disengaged. Mindless. No, thank you.

Notthebigcompany is our Culture. Our philosophy. The way we do business. The way we live our lives. It lives in each and every one of us. It’s what makes us special and what sets us apart. We are serious about it and even more serious about protecting it. It’s the reason we are a perpetual presence on Best Place to Work lists in every state where we have offices. We’re proud of that. It says something.

Today, Drew Clancy is our President. He sets the tone and leads our charge, and his voice guides us daily.
