A COVID Success Story

May 19, 2020

Hardesty LLC is well positioned to assist clients for full spectrum CFO responsibilities.  Recently, a CPG client engaged Hardesty Partner, Don Hahn, to manage the fiscal audit incorporating the first year of acquisition by the Company’s investment sponsors. The engagement posed significant logistical challenges with client location in the Greater Los Angeles area engaging Hardesty from Orange County and audit team from Los Angeles and other satellite offices.  Adding to the logistical challenge, the start of field work nearly coincided with the COVID19 stay and shelter order from Governor Newsom.
Hardesty Partner, Don Hahn, ran a first for Hardesty, our client, and the audit team, a virtual audit with the audit team never being on site.  Despite the significant logistical challenges, Hardesty Partner collaborated successfully with the client and completed client audit deliverables almost one week ahead of schedule.  The Hardesty team leveraged the collective expertise of other Hardesty partners to facilitate a success for the client delivering final audit report on time.
From the CFO:
“We were very fortunate to have Don support us on our recent audit. He came in and hit the ground running from day 1. During the audit, he provided the necessary guidance and leadership to our team and our audit to make sure we stayed on track. The result was a successful audit that came in on time. Don is a pleasure to work with. He combines strong technical skills, clear communication skills and excellent leadership skills on a consistent basis. I look forward to working with Don again in the future.”
