   Zientek brings more than 30 years of finance experience with an extensive track record of capitalizing on emerging opportunities and driving organizational change to improve profitability. He previously served as a senior consultant to CBIZ, Inc., a national consulting firm with over 100 offices and approximately 4,600 associates.

I look forward to leveraging my past experience to implement the necessary financial initiatives as we enter our next stage of growth and expand our footprint.”
