He is also a firm believer in all the growth and expansion also have to be sustainable in the end. Today under his leadership CSI Group has grown to markets in Europe.
CSI Group has even with the expansion over the years maintained its tradition. Probably the biggest tradition they have maintained is the business’s set up as a family business.
