As our national sales team grows, it is important we have colleagues who reflect our shared values and goals, and Summer Street is just that!” says Dan Cassara, CEO of CORE.
“When my long-time friend and colleague, Dan Cassara, started promoting his new venture, I was intrigued. When he shared his vision for CORE, I was sold. CORE is creating a contractor network that takes all the good parts of other networks and adds what has been missing. CORE’s values insist on respect for its contractor partners, commitment to its clients, and a diverse and passionate corporate culture. The restoration industry has been asking for something new, something that takes all its needs into account. I recognized that CORE is designed to deliver.” – Summer Street
