As a former principal at HLB Gross Collins, I am pleased to continue to be able to work with the firm’s professionals as the Chief Financial Officer of a long-time client of the firm. Serving a complex operation such as Mirasco’s is challenging, and Michael Bohling and Iliana Malinov meet that challenge by constantly thinking about our business and being in regular contact with me. Along with the managers, Adil Amou and Michelle Jenkins, they keep us current on reporting and tax developments. Our international scope requires advisors who are constantly thinking about all the implications of our transactions, and the HLB team does a great job bringing us ideas and responding to our questions.
Rick Hamilton EVP & CFO
I have used HLB Gross Collins for personal taxes and partnership returns for over 10 years. I have found the firm and my primary contact, Abigail Hampton to be competent and responsive even when I have been late providing information. I have no reservations in recommending Gross Collins and Abigail to anyone needing a CPA.
