Rather than use mass-market images, we partnered with local photographer Bobby Carlsen to showcase the Danville area’s rich history and vibrant present-day community, as well as CIT’s presence in the region throughout the years…”
The company, which has been at its Danville location since 1989, employs more than 180 people in the area.
