This unique service allows members to optimize their campus investments and contribute to the mission and long-term financial health of their institutions.
“We’re very proud of our inclusion on the Inc. 5000 list again as it illustrates how the support of our member clients and the dedication of our employees drives the continued growth we’ve experienced over the past five years,” said David Kadamus, president and chief executive officer of Sightlines.
According to Kadamus, Sightlines now works with more than 500 colleges and universities across the U.S. and Canada, helping academic institutions across the country bridge the gap that separates finance and facilities, and give facilities executives the information they need to inform future facilities planning and make key financial decisions on campus.
