Kimber Lanning“I have been doing business with David DeLorenzo for close to 15 years. Dave is the kind of guy who will totally go the extra mile for his clients- doesn’t matter what it takes, Dave has a can-do attitude and will get it done. I have found him to be very responsive and capable of thinking outside the box. Over the years, I have recommended him to several other businesses and every single one has been happy with the results. Business owners sometimes forget that service providers are an extension of our own teams. David will remind you what a big difference a great partner can make.”
