When Brad Scott (pictured seventh from the left) decided to start his own IT solutions company, he felt very strongly that the name serve his company's goals, but also honor his heritage. Scott, of both Chickasaw and Scottish descent, decided upon the name "Cetan," based on Chetan 'the Hawk' from Native American mythology, the great messenger and observer. "It echoes the guiding principles of the company: speed, dedication, and strong vision," says Scott. "I am a product of my family’s history and my company, Cetan Corp, is my way of paying tribute to my family and my heritage."
