Central Cog Design was founded by Dr. Kent & Kim McCorkle with the goal of helping local businesses thrive in today’s increasingly online-centric marketplace. It is their desire to supply the missing piece, or central cog, that connects local companies with local customers through creative online marketing, intelligent search engine optimization, and innovative use of social media. In addition to launching Central Cog Design, Dr. Kent McCorkle is a chemistry professor with a strong technological background, while his wife Kim is a former operations manager, having successfully helped grow multiple local businesses.
