From Our Clients

“Changing audit firms after a long relationship is not an easy decision nor one to take lightly.   After careful consideration,  the Audit Committee and Management decided the Company would be better served with a regional firm with a specialty in banks and a deep knowledge of community banking in Virginia, West Virginia and Maryland.   We immediately felt the difference in the community bank knowledge of the team assigned to our audit, the consultative approach to complex accounting rules and their ability to relate to issues facing a $4 billion community bank.   We knew it was the right decision and commented that ‘we should have switched years ago’.” – Alice Frazier
