Testimonials

In our members’ own words

August Sodora, President, Swift Electrical Supply Co., Inc.

“As a small, closely-held business, every investment counts—especially today. I can tell you that CIANJ has been more than just a good thing for Swift. My membership in the CEO roundtable has provided many new ideas for my company and put me in the room with people who I want to do business with. At the end of the day, I would put my money into CIANJ before any other association, because I know it will be an investment that pays off.”

Bill Hanson, President, NAI/James E. Hanson, Inc.

“The commercial real estate market is highly competitive and challenging. Our participation in CIANJ puts us together with the businesses that need our services as well as those who are perfect referral sources. Get recognized. Be active in CIANJ. People notice.”

Blake Ellman, President, Net Access Corporation

My fast growing technology company doesn’t always offer me the luxury of experimenting with business organizations that might someday be of value. CIANJ delivers value in so many ways. Exposure to top business leaders. Exposure to top legislators. Highly targeted promotional opportunities and sponsorships. Plus a network of experts and products to tap when I need them. CIANJ is an excellent resource for New Jersey businesses.

Joseph A. Fazio, CPA, CGMA, Managing Director, Fazio, Mannuzza, Roche, Tankel, LaPilusa

“Not only do I attend many of the CIANJ Events as the Managing Director, we also send our Partners and staff, as we participate on several of the steering committees.  Sponsorships at Roundtables have proven to be valuable and we have connected with many prospective clients.  We truly are involved and enjoy our Commerce and Industry membership!”

 

Lucia DiNapoli Gibbons, Regional President Northern NJ, Wells Fargo

“CIANJ represents all-sized companies, from women-owned businesses to multi-national corporations, making it the premier group capable of delivering pro-employer messages to New Jersey’s diverse professions and industries. In addition, since many law firms and CPA firms actively participate, CIANJ is an excellent resource to connect you with the state’s top professional services organizations.”

Sam Delgado, VP of Community & Stakeholders Affairs, Verizon

“Even though we are a national company, Verizon still has deep roots in New Jersey. We depend on the leadership that CIANJ offers to help us keep in touch with the state’s business leaders and the pro-business voice they provide in Trenton.”

Terrie O’Connor, Broker/President, Terrie O’Connor Realtors

“CIANJ has been a great venue for our company, Terrie O’Connor Realtors. We have interacted with so many other NJ business leaders through our membership as well as staying informed on all pertinent legislative issues affecting the NJ business climate.  The networking is invaluable.  My membership in the CEO roundtable has allowed me to grow the company and be a better leader.  CIANJ is a trusted and professional organization which I have thoroughly enjoyed being an active member of in today’s highly competitive marketplace.”

Thomas P. McNabola, CPA, Principal, Hunter Group CPA LLC

“Professional firms who want to work with top business leaders and who support communicating business’ concerns to State government have very few organizations to consider. CIANJ is unique because of its unbiased support of free enterprise. As a result, the caliber of influential people attracted to this organization is unmatched.”

Tracy Straka, Executive VP, Creamer Environmental, Inc.

“It’s simple. If you are a NJ business dealing with environmental issues, CIANJ is the only real advocate organization. CIANJ helps environmental businesses promote their services, develop meaningful business alliances and have a voice when legislative initiatives threaten to stifle progress. Our business has been enhanced tremendously through its membership in CIANJ.”
