Quote

“One thing you never question about Greg is that he truly loves what he does. You see this in not only his dedication but also his accessibility. I know that if I ever have an issue, about anything, he is just a phone call away. In the complex and confusing realm of accounting standards, Greg has the ability to grasp the “ivory tower theory” in a way that makes it relatable and understandable.”
