The Main Street Corridor Development Corporation (MainCor) is a not-for-profit corporation that encourages economic development along the Main Street Corridor (from The Plaza to Crown Center). MainCor offers support and technical assistance to the corporations, small businesses, institutions, adjacent neighborhood associations and various city agencies within the Corridor, in order to make it a safe, clean, inviting place for people to visit, shop and live.
The Lazarus Group has been happy to have MainCor as a client for about three years now, and was ecstatic to attend their 25th Anniversary Dinner this January. The event featured the unveiling of MainCor's newly made-over website. Maincor.org features upcoming news, events and some historical background (including some really cool images), in addition to providing a convenient communication point between members, the community and city officials.

Introducing (2 of 4) New Employees
In order to keep up with the growing demands of all our great clients, the Lazarus Group is excited to introduce four new members of our cabal.

If you ever drop by The Lazarus Group to be greeted by a lanky individual with a serious 5 o'clock shadow and dark rings beneath his eyes - you've just met our new programmer, Andre Kadibelban, following one of his programming all-nighters.

Fluent in PHP, MysQL, Linux, Java Script, Andre joins us fresh from ESC Index, a hosted software development provider. If precision functionality designed for the fast lane of the online autobahn is what you need, Andre is your man.

He offers Lazarus Group clients extensive hands-on experience with a full range of graphic design tools from Quark to PhotoShop, Illustrator and the entire Adobe Design Suite. As a freelance designer, he has worked with industry leaders like Bernstein Rein and McDonalds. In addition, Carlos is an accomplished digital artist, allowing The Lazarus Group's clientele a convenient source for original illustration and animé design. Carlos also helps The Lazarus Group maintain our bi-lingual services...Si!
