Jamie Dempsey, president of the Greater Eastside Chamber of Commerce, said he has a very good working relationship with Reiling. Reiling has produced high quality work for Dempsey's Moosehead Marketing Solutions.
“I can't say enough about the business ethics that he and his staff portray in the community,” Demspey said.
Snellville's Economic Development Manager Eric Van Otteren said that the city has used Reiling's business several times.
“He's always been very helpful, insightful and innovative,” Van Otteren said. “He's very professional and does a really good job.”
Reiling worked with the city when he was first looking for a building and ended up finding it through their vacant property list. A professional cleaning service was previously in the space. It needed a lot of work, but Reiling has made great improvements.
“The city is glad to have his business,” added Van Otteren. “This is just one more of a long string of quality businesses coming to our area.”
