WHAT OUR CLIENTS HAVE TO SAY
"...Mark [Banaszak] is a real gem. He’s positive, smart, reliable, personable and has a very good sense of humor…a real pleasure to work with. Lawrence and I are super happy with him and so is the CEPA Board of Directors. We are so glad CEPA was able to take advantage of the opportunity presented by ASI and thank you very much for this opportunity."
“The SGAA would really like to grow and thrive in WNY. The organization has been surviving over the last 10 years at our previous home, but we see our move to Buffalo as the start of a new chapter for us. Using the services of ASI in the area of fiscal responsibility is another crucial first step in getting us on the right track and we’re immensely grateful that this service exists.”
