Due to an unexpected medical situation, our CFO was going to miss 2 to 6 weeks of work – with little ability to communicate with us at all.  We contacted Rankin McKenzie and within a couple of days met with Angie, and she felt like a perfect fit.  She spent a few days with our CFO and quickly got up to speed.  It was a great comfort having her take over the day to day finances for a couple of months until our CFO was able to return to work full-time.

Angie has been so impactful since day one. Before she joined the team, we had poor record-keeping, many historical mistakes in our financials, and an audit around the corner. Angie completely cleaned up our financials and standardized our monthly reporting and presentation to the Board of Directors. We just completed the audit process ahead of schedule thanks to Angie’s leadership and guidance. I cannot say enough about the positive impact Angie has had on our organization, and I look forward to continuing to work with her as we continue to grow.

I hired Angie in the midst of a significant growth period and was in need of a self starter, and that’s what we got with Angie. I had no reservations regarding hiring her and was impressed by her enthusiasm for her work.  She was an excellent business partner, and I had the utmost trust in her as her leader as she was privy to all customer communication.  Overall, I most remember her attention to detail and financial acumen.  I was so disappointed when our contract with Angie ended as ultimately it required me to staff two distinct roles to replace Angie’s work.
