DATE: January 2013 - Happy 9th Birthday CI!
March 8th 2013, was Commercial Investigations 9th Birthday! On that day, I reflected with my colleagues on all that is Commercial
Investigations LLC (CI). This means we are heading into our tenth year of existence and, to quote my niece Taylor, one year from
“double digits”, yes, ten.
My colleagues and I celebrated together with cake and ice cream. This year, it was Villa Italia cake, and, as always, Stewart’s Ice
We are our clients’ Proactive Truth Partner. We are reminded throughout the day, as every day, of the effects of what we do in terms
of our clients and their clientele. As well as the effects on their prospective employees, tenants, business partners and others who are
subjected to the background investigations we conduct.
Over the past year we’ve released our refined Volunteer Screening Solutions, enhanced our Cursory Indicator New York proprietary
criminal record inquiry, and grown dramatically. Mike Menges, Managing Investigator, was promoted to his position. Patricia DeCerbo, Manager of Finance and Administration, was also promoted. We added Dale Smith as our Director of Business Development, Gregory Cramer as Business Development Associate and Robyn O’Brien as Business Development Associate.
We also added Jessica Paulsen to our investigative team.
As we reflect, we are thankful for our current and future clients. We wanted to extend our good fortune back to our clients by making special contributions to the following nine non-profit organizations in recognition of our 9th birthday:
•I Am I Can
•Capital Region Sponsor A Scholar
•St Paul’s Center
•St Joseph’s Provincial House
•Woodland Hill Montessori School
•Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Capital Region
•Boys and Girls Club of Schenectady
Thank you to our clients, my colleagues and friends and family.
Here’s to year 10!!
