About Us

Our Approach

CBS’s vision is simple:  To develop innovative and interesting workplace practices, ideas and advanced technological products and services that support global ingenuity.

Our Story

At the beginnings of a US recession (2007), CBS was created when other companies were closed to new opportunities.  We saw a need for global commerce in the heart of a discouraging and distressed economic downtown that took years to recover from.  While supporting 2 other established, profitable (even in the recession years) firms, CBS began offering products and services to US government contractual offerings and a few other global opportunities.  Equipped with the knowledge of US government procurement and contractual processes – CBS began the adventure of supplying original products and creative services to US and global companies.  Originally starting off in US government and public procurement – CBS now offers globally-focused, creative concepts focused on knowledge-intensive services.
