Schellman & Co., LLC.

<p><strong>For the past 17 years, Schellman has consistently changed the landscape of compliance.&nbsp; While we&rsquo;re extremely proud of our successful history, we&rsquo;re not resting on it.&nbsp; 2019 is another year of moving forward:&nbsp; new service offerings, increased in-house certifications, additional benefits in our already amazing package, expanded community service initiatives, just to name a few.</strong></p> <p><strong>Not all CPA firms are created equal and we are definitely different. &nbsp;No time-reporting, promotions only from within, the ability to contribute and be heard, and most importantly, great work-life balance.&nbsp; The biggest difference?&nbsp; We don&rsquo;t perform any remediation or consulting.&nbsp; Our pace is fast and therefore, we are not the best fit for everyone.</strong></p> <p><strong>If you&rsquo;ve always thought of yourself as someone who sets themselves apart from the crowd, as someone who likes to be visible and have their contributions noted, and likes the feeling of completion, we&rsquo;d love to hear from you.&nbsp;</strong></p> <span style="text-decoration: underline;"><strong><br /><br /></strong></span>
