“I worked with Catherine four years in a row to prepare for annual audits in my role as Finance Manager at the City of La Vista.

“Catherine is productive the minute she hits the door, quickly pulling data out of the accounting system and organizing it into work papers that led to year-end closing entries in preparation for the audit. Catherine immediately clicked with the Finance Department staff and they enjoyed working with her. She resolved many problems in the general ledger and put procedures in place and trained staff to continue in this improved process.

“Catherine builds good relationships and takes that with her to each new assignment. There is no one who can hit the ground running and achieve immediate results like Catherine Demes Maydew.”
