He used his marketing degree from Rutgers University to effectively promote and sell engineered products while building a reputation as a dependable and knowledgeable sales representative. Nick and his wife Lynne purchased CESI in 2001 and built a very successful business based on his dedication to his customers, principals and employees. Nick's leadership helped CESI grow to be one of the most respected sales rep firms in the Philadelphia trading area. Nick's untimely death in 2009 left an emptiness in the minds and hearts of everyone who knew him.
