On behalf of the CETRA team, I would like to thank all of you for helping us to make 2010 our best year ever and to wish you the very best in 2011.
This year, with the help of 700 translators and interpreters we served more than 600 clients around the world. CETRA has received multiple awards, including the Philadelphia 100, Inc. 5000, and the US Chamber of Commerce Blue Ribbon. Among the most exciting developments was our expansion to Washington, DC. Our new office in the Ronald Reagan Building and International Trade Center has become the main hub for CETRA’s government contracts and we are well positioned to further expand our services to the federal government.
We also introduced new services such as American Sign Language interpretation and grew our presence in the market research, life sciences, and legal sectors. CETRA continues to be a good corporate citizen and in 2010 raised $7,500 for the National Multiple Sclerosis Society. In fact, philanthropy became our new focus for 2011 and beyond. To that end we modified our mission statement to include our determination to not only do well, but also to do good. We are planning further expansion in 2011, both in terms of opening new offices and offering new services such as telephonic and video interpreting.
We wish you a happy and prosperous 2011 and look forward to working with many of you!
