Haute Living Magazine - 01/26/2011 "It's really interesting how we got here. Some of it wasn't by design, it was by default," Seelinger admits. "Unfortunately, a lot of companies in our industry haven't survived, but we've done really well." In 2010 alone, EmpireCLS brought in approximately $140 million in revenue. "I think the business will continue to grow in the entertainment industry in the United States and abroad," he predicts. And if last year is any indication of how the company will fare in 2011, then there's even more rewards to come. Seelinger already boasts his own personal collection of luxury vehicles, including three motorcycles and a couple of racecars, which are parked outside his New York and Manhattan Beach homes. And while he's certainly living a life of luxury, he always finds time to give back. EmpireCLS supports several non-profit organizations like Music Cares, Table to Table for Northern New Jersey, the Make-a-Wish Foundatio, and countless others.
