FROM A CLIENT
[Alan] has been a wonderful person to work with. I've heard the same sentiments echoed by several members of our accounting leadership and other team members.
Alan is smart, efficient, organized, and has quickly come up to speed to understand our process, the nuances of SOX, and the many things we are all juggling.
He also manages to take the words written on the pages and works with us to truly understand what the process is and more importantly, the business implications behind it. He even takes it one step further by finding ways for us to increase operational efficiency while maximizing SOX compliance. JM, SVP/Controller
