“Our experience with Shannon has been stellar. From the start, they jumped in and got involved and made the transition very easy. They have worked with us through standard accounting functions such as taxes and the review of financial statements. In addition, I recently hired them to recruit for our CFO position and I was very pleased with their process. As a result of their efforts, I was able to hire a CFO with the level of experience and expertise that I needed for my business - they have exceeded my expectations and I consider them trusted advisors for my business.”
