In January 2016, we made some personnel changes that required us to seek an outside source for our internal accounting needs. Rick Ruhl and his firm were recommended by two of the most prominent accounting firms in the Reading area. He was able to reconcile 2015 to allow us to file our tax returns and clean up all of the general ledger entries from 2015. They created a clean slate for 2016 so we had a true baseline of our financial condition to make appropriate management decisions. It’s been 18 months since he partnered with us and monthly closings have been effortless and on time.
Ruhl & Associates, LLC, provided interim management and accounting support while we conducted a search for a President and Controller. Rick quickly learned our unique manufacturing and legacy systems and provided much-needed coaching and support to the accounting team and production manager. He also created a smooth transition once the new leadership came aboard with detailed and documented training. I truly appreciated Rick's style and solid work ethic in my early days here at Sylvin Technologies. I definitely needed his insight and professionalism as I got my bearings!
Rick Ruhl and his accounting team have become a vital asset to our company’s operations since he started working with us in 2014. We know we have a trustworthy resource that can provide the critical financial information we need to be successful.
