Cindy Leines CEO says, “In a world of identity theft, consumer fraud and Wall Street rip off, where Bernie Madoff ‘made off’’ with peoples life savings, businesses have an obligation to be true to the people they serve. We believe that if we work ethically and stay true to our value system, we help others succeed and by doing so, create our own success.”
