This is from Sarah Johnson of CFO.com on December 2, 2009:
We are delighted to announce a partnership agreement with HJ Associates & Consultants, L.L.P. out of Salt Lake City, Utah! HJA is a member of the RSM McGladrey Network. We met HJA earlier this year and based upon their belief in our approach, they referred several clients to us which have all resulted in successful SOX implementations. This partnership will allow us to expand our reach and the overall availability of the SOX Compliance Made Simple product line. It is truly a privilege to partner with such an amazing team of professionals! Read more about the partnership here.
Margaret Randazzo of Akeena Solar was promoted to CFO yesterday! We wanted to wish her heartfelt congratulations on a well-deserved promotion. Margaret is a true professional with the kind of knowledge and dedication that we admire here at Vibato.
At a time when most companies are laying staff off, I am proud to say that Vibato is hiring and expanding! We attribute our level of growth to the excellent products and services we provide to our wonderful clients.
In addition to serving our clients, we have been busy working on new products! We are planning to launch two new products in January and a new version of our SOX Compliance Made Simple® product! We will also be announcing three new processes to our library of available process cycles! Stay tuned!
