A Note from CIS

By Jessica McDonald – This has been a season of great progress and change at CIS, and the year is ending with a bang!  David Novak has been an integral part of the success of 2013 and has put our company in a position to experience incredible growth in the year ahead.  However, David has moved on to new challenges, and we find ourselves under extraordinary new leadership.  Ernie Cote brings over 20 years of experience in sales, marketing, consulting and management.  Ernie is poised and ready to take CIS to the next level.  Below, I invite you to meet our new CEO.  As always, we thank you for being part of the CIS family. A Note from the New CEO of CIS, Ernie Cote I love that catchy tune “Home” by Phillip Phillips.  You know the one, “Just know you’re not alone….cause I’m gonna make this place your home.” (I apologize if that tune is now stuck in your head all day.) I’ve been humming it a lot over the last week since joining CIS.  I plan to continue making CIS a home for very talented and highly committed professionals who dig what they do; people who enjoy providing our members with accurate and useful data that simplifies jobs. That may sound corny, but if I continue to hire and retain people who love what they do, they will be committed to continually improving our products and services while keeping your data fresh and valuable.  In return, you will continue to find value in our products and make us your home for chemical data and sourcing. Please let me know how I can continue to make CIS a partner that adds value to your job.   I’m available by email at e.cote@chemicalinfo.com or by phone at +1 (214) 432-2157. Finally, I would like to thank David Novak for his outstanding service to CIS as President over the last few years and wish him the best as he ventures into the entrepreneurial world.  We know he will be a great success based on his accomplishments here.  He led the efforts to improve our infrastructure, recruited an outstanding team and put us in the financial position to catapult into our bright future.  We look forward to sharing that success with you, our members.  Please stay tuned for updates and improvements as we move forward. I look forward to speaking with you soon. As always, we thank you for being part of the CIS family.   Sincerely, Ernie Cote CEO, Chemical Information Services +1(214) 432-2157 | e.cote@chemicalinfo.com
