“The Cimbal team has great vision of what the marketplace needs and has the energy and persistence to get it done. We have enjoyed working with Cimbal.”


“Cimbal approached our company at the perfect time. We weren’t executing against our plan and had sacrificed much of our innovative spirit along the way. The Cimbal team pushed us to explore new opportunities and take risks. Cimbal offered great ideas and valuable perspective as seasoned business leaders which created new value and revenue streams we had not thought possible. I would absolutely work with Cimbal again.”
