We replaced a ‘Big Four’ accounting firm with SLD to perform audits on our defined benefit pension plan and our savings and investment plan. Not only did they meet our aggressive deadline schedule, they provided an exceptional level of customer service while delivering a quality product. The SLD team was professional, courteous and responsive. We look forward to building a strong relationship over time.
