About the Name: Caerus (Greek: Καιρός, Kairos)
Caerus is the Greek personification of opportunity and favorable moments. Known in Ancient Rome as Occasio or Tempus, Caerus manifests the essential measure to achieve a given aim. For us, it’s the right people, the right situation, the right objective, the right effort – none left to chance – but still requiring decisive action.
We set ourselves apart through devotion to distinctive core principles:
- Excellence – The search for excellence is fundamental and synonymous with integrity. Other values follow from this pursuit.
- Discipline – Disciplined thought, action, and speech are precursors to genuine success and joy.
- Patience – We build for the long-term. Lasting relationships, disciplined action, and enduring creation go hand-in-hand.
- Constituent Focus – We measure our success by the long-term success of our constituents and partners. We leave each situation or company in an improved position.
- Truth and Candor – We seek the truth, say what we mean, and mean what we say.
