• The essential principle that has guided the Central National-Gottesman organization since its inception was voiced over 80 years ago by the late D. Samuel Gottesman, pioneer in the pulp and paper industry, financier, industrialist and humanitarian.

    It defines our undeviating commitment to professionalism, integrity and quality.

    And, most important, it will continue to form the cornerstone of our business activities in the years to come…

    “Since the inception of this organization we have consistently and persistently endeavored to conduct our business on one essential principle: that in every transaction the very name of this organization should carry with it an assurance of thorough understanding, absolute integrity and the utmost in service. We believe that the measure of success which we have achieved is a measure of the success of this policy.”

    – D. Samuel Gottesman
