Trustworthy and Knowledgeable
I was a partner in a Consulting Engineering business for 25 years, and Rick Williamson was our only chartered accounted during this venture. Rick provided professional in depth accounting services and was always very helpful and informative. Rick brings a wealth of knowledge and experience to the table, which proved to be extremely useful. Four years ago after my Engineering partner retired, I bought into a Mechanical Contracting business and convinced my new partner to bring Rick into the fold. Mr. Williamson has been our accountant ever since, providing the same high level of services.
