Local management consultant business has its ‘anchor in Christ’


    By Camm Ashford 

    When DeVan Curry started ANCUR, Inc. in 2007, he wanted to make sure his newly established management consultant business was spiritually anchored.
    “ANCUR is the phonetic spelling for anchor,” Curry explained. “I have a faith with Christ, and He has always been my anchor. So here we are today.”

    Curry also cites his family’s “leadership spirit” as a motivator for striking out on his own after spending years designing and managing public health campaigns for government agencies in Georgia.
    “I come from a long line of entrepreneurs from Mound Bayou, Mississippi,” Curry said. “Mound Bayou can be compared to Tulsa, Oklahoma, the big epicenter for Black businesses back in the 1920s. My lineage is all about being self-sustainable. My father instilled in us a leadership spirit, and we all are very plugged in.”
    Curry is a Chattanooga native and graduated  from the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga, where he earned a dual Bachelor of Science degree in biology and psychology. He then went on to Georgia State University, where he  earned his Master of Science degree in public administration.   

    With a mission statement of, “We put legs under your vision,” Curry said ANCUR, Inc. seeks to help professionals streamline their operations so they can focus on what matters most, being a part of the business they love.

    “People don’t start a business because they want to do paperwork,” he noted. “They start their business because they have a passion for something. We understand that.”

    ANCUR, Inc. offers clients administrative and operations consulting, payroll services, bookkeeping, corporate development and executive business coaching.

    “Since day one, we have been recognized as a top business management consultant throughout Chattanooga, Nashville and Atlanta,” Curry said. “We attribute our reputation to the lasting customer relationships we’ve developed throughout the years, by providing clients with a wide range of services that will help them thrive and grow. Whether it’s project planning, business analyses or crisis management, we are here for our clients–wherever, whenever.”
