“Having taken the time to fully scope out our needs with both Tyler Mangen and myself, fdu moved fast to identify the right Interim Finance Director resource and implemented the Interim service on time and according to plan. Our chosen Associate set to work immediately on a series of objectives that had specific actions and timeframes. He completed all of these objectives within the timeframe set. He improved the systems which can easily be maintained, and very quickly became part of the management team, gaining respect from his colleagues and management peers. fdu’s Associate was fantastic; a friendly individual, but his management style was deceptively firm.”
