A Firefighter Mentality
Espousing a firefighter mentality is a key core value at CNWR. While nearly all companies have a rapid response team and SLA’s for response. At CNWR, we take responding to trouble seriously.

Doing what is right is not always the quickest or easiest to accomplish in business. However, here at CNWR, we have embraced the idealogy of doing the right thing to protect a company, even if it's a complicated and challenging path. We always have the customer's best interest in mind.
Being human is a simple concept. As humans we crave social interactions and belonging. We are naturally social creatures. We believe that if you treat people well and remember they’re human, things will be better.
