A Note From Our CEO, Daniel Lesneski

When I started the business in 2006, I knew that one day I wouldn’t be able to do it all. That is, I was hoping I could grow to the point that I couldn’t do it all. Having a business which serves multiple clients within driving distance is an undertaking, let alone clients across the country. We quickly outgrew my one-man operation.

I have been blessed with the opportunity to bring in friends and colleagues to work alongside me. Many businesses compare their staff to an engine. The staff at CNI is no exception. What may have started as a one-man-show has now grown to over 20 employees working directly with our own NOC team.  

The dedication and distinct personalities of each member of my team proves how much they are an invaluable part of CNI Consultants, and I’m grateful they are along with me on this journey.
