2021 Marketing Trends Report
We are a relatively new client of Cerini’s, but, though we are not a particularly large entity, the level of interest and professionalism they have shown to our organization has been so high right from the start that it feels as if we have been a client of theirs for many years. This is but one factor among many that has already convinced us that Cerini is the right firm for us as we continue to grow. Their expertise in dealing with non-profit organizations has proven extremely helpful to us, and they have demonstrated strong analytical skills in addressing typical, as well as complex, transactions. They are unusually responsive to all of our needs and we look forward to many years of working with them.
Time dedicated to clients by Cerini & Associates employees is more meaningful than typical “work.”
We are grateful for our alliance with Cerini & Associates and the impact their dedication to increasing literacy has made on the community. Employees and clients should feel gratified that they are putting books in the hands of underprivileged children across New York, and that they are single-handedly helping to eradicate illiteracy.
With their support, The Book Fairies is on a mission to break the cycle of illiteracy stemming from poverty and a lack of access to reading material. It’s a simple yet incredibly impactful gesture that should be revered and modeled by others.
