The most professional accounting people...”
”Jerry always assigned the most professional accounting people to our assignments; not only technically professional, but they interfaced well with our personnel at all levels. There was never an assignment in either of the companies I was with where TIC’s objectives weren’t completed satisfactorily or in a timely manner.
— Don DeRoeck

“Professionalism, integrity and thoughtfulness”
”Working with The Interim Controller prepared me for the challenges of Controllership positions I held later in life. The professionalism, integrity and thoughtfulness of the practice was always evident. Most of all, every engagement seemed to have the right people to execute the plan due to the breath of talent employed by The Interim Controller.
— Greg

“Would never have been able to close the accounting year”
”The Interim Controller has been our external accounting department for many years. I thank you and your staff for your tireless effort in maintaining our financial records, and in the upgrade of our accounting system where many of our former financial records had been compromised. Without The Interim Controller, we would not have been able to close the accounting year or report to the Federal and State Tax Agencies with confidence. I can highly recommend The Interim Controller to any company seeking additional external accounting expertise.
— Walter Remy, President, Westek Data Storage Products, Inc.

Experienced and accomplished professionals”
”I worked for Jerry Joyce at The Interim Controller for 13 years, taking on 12 different contracting/consulting assignments over that span. These assignments varied in length from a few months to a couple of years. Always, our goal was to fix the problems and work ourselves out of a job.

Jerry always had a thorough understanding of the problems and what needed to be done on the assignments. He kept in touch with his contractors during the assignments and offered ideas support and advice. The accountants who were a part of his “stable” were invariably experienced and accomplished professionals, who could step into a difficult situation, figured out what needed to be done, and then do it. He only took a small portion of the fee because he believed the lion’s share of the pay should go to the person doing the work. The only complaint I have is that I didn’t always think the fee was high enough, considering the difficulty of the assignments and the value that we provided.
— Barry Woodruff

Who would have figured...”
”Jerry contacted me with a small start-up through someone he knew. There was no financial benefit to him. Just Jerry trying to help someone out and match two people. It’s been over 6 years now. I am the employee with the most seniority in the company. I have seen the company undergo the replacement of the executive team, go through expansions and some contraction and am now working from the third headquarters location for the company.

And it’s all thank you to Jerry, who in a 15-30 minute conversation started me off on a 6 year run.
— Allan

The personal touch”
”The Interim Controller provides a linkage between business professionals and businesses in need. As a business professional, I was able to work when I wanted and for whom. I learned a great deal and was able to assist the clients with their accounting needs. The personal touch, on the part of The Interim Controller Staff, was helpful, supportive and professional. They did a wonderful job of matching skills and talents with the needs of the clients.
