Scott is presently the Chairman of the Florida Institute of CPAs. “By providing clients with the ability to work with one firm for all of their compliance needs, we are able to reduce the impact of the audit to the organization as well as reduce the overall engagement fees.”
A-lign has assembled a top notch team of audit professionals from Arthur Andersen, Ernst & Young, Deloitte & Touche, KPMG and PriceWaterhouseCoopers. These employees hold Master Degrees in Accounting and related certifications in Audit, Accounting and Information Systems. Director Neil Gonsalves, CPA, CISA, CA observed, “Our team is comprised of international auditors who represent India, Germany, China, the Carribean, and the US.
