WHAT CLIENTS SAY ABOUT DAVE:
“Dave’s management of our engagement made this year’s audit the least “painful” for the bank staff in my memory, which was especially important this year since we were both short-staffed and had some unique circumstances occur.”
“We are a small bank that is growing rapidly. Dave was helpful in not just identifying any issues but also recommending best practices to avoid future issues. He does a very good job of maintaining independence while yet providing helpful ideas as the bank continues its growth.”
