Leadership

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.

CIS Executives are directly involved in the daily aspects of the firm's business, providing direct management of client accounts and operations, as well as oversight to accounts that are managed by CIS Reps. This approach helps ensure that clients have a true voice in what is done, with feedback going directly to management and ownership, making CIS shockingly responsive to client needs.
