A Word from One of Our Partners

"MultiView has been a sponsor of CESSE for several years now, and it’s one of the most rewarding sponsorships to date. Not only do we get to support CESSE by hosting their Afterglow Party, but we also reap the benefits by showcasing who MultiView is to the engineering, technical and scientific societies/associations. The sponsorship has allowed us to generate new relationships with these highly-trusted organizations, all while growing our relationships with existing partners. Needless to say, being a sponsor of CESSE has allowed us to increase our brand visibility to this niche community and we’re grateful for that."

-Michael Candela, EVP Partnerships, MultiView Inc.

“As I think about our journey as a firm, particularly as we approach the end of this really difficult year, there is simply no other community that’s meant as much to our success.” 

-Jay Younger, FASAE, President & CEO, McKinley Advisors
