COVID-19 Response

Clients and partners,

We hope that you and your families are safe and healthy during this uncertain time. As we continue to monitor the evolving COVID-19 situation, Christner has implemented some changes to our daily operations in order to minimize the spread of the virus and protect our employees and community.

New year, new look

We’ve been working on some exciting things here at Christner!  Over the past few years, our firm has changed quite a lot.  With our third generation of leadership now at the helm, we felt it was time to update our look to better reflect our core values and the clients we serve.  During the next few months, we will be releasing an updated brand identity, which includes a new logo, colors, font and website.  Our goal was to create a brand that is simple, fresh, approachable, and connected.
