About Us

Our Story

Two partners came together - one with Financial Services background and other in Construction - who have first-hand experienced the tedious paperwork needs and the daily negative discussions with subcontractors about payments and work progress. With the aim of addressing these pain points, CES was born. Our founders have combined 50+ years of industry experience with trusted firms in the industry, including one of the top-4 accounting firms, the most prestigious investment bank & a market leader in the retirement planning space.
