It is with confidence that I recommend Cerini and Associates, LLP as auditors for non–profit organizations. As the Chief Financial Officer representing several companies, I’ve worked with a number of different audit teams throughout the years. They are always competent, well-organized, and thorough. Audit partner Matt Burke is very knowledgeable and professional, and available throughout the audit to answer questions or discuss any issues that arise. The firm is also a resource year-round – providing guidance for new accounting pronouncements, offering seminars & training sessions, and brainstorming options to handle unique transactions that occur.

Susan Dickinson, CFO | Family Residences and Essential Enterprises, Inc.
