Lance Redman, Audit Partner adds “I have long-standing relationships with my clients with some having been with me for more than 30 years. One of the aspects of the Shaw Gibbs acquisition which I am very pleased about is that we will continue to hold the same relationships and from the client’s perspective, there will be very little change.
