A founding philosophy at CIS is to provide excellence in every conceivable role. CIS goes to great lengths to ensure that each member of the CIS team exudes courtesy and confidence. Each CIS team is managed by a Practice Director, who is typically responsible for architecting and designing projects, interfacing with clients in conjunction with the assigned project manager, and providing high-level management, as needed.
