Mike Hagerty, Kent ISD
“Kent ISD has been a Maner Costerisan client for 4 years and I have worked with them on other engagements for over 15 years. The service they provide is nothing short of amazing. They are knowledgeable, proactive, responsive and committed. I have never encountered a Maner Costerisan professional that wasn’t the best at what they do and there isn’t another CPA firm in the area that has their expertise in the education field.
What really impresses me most about Maner Costerisan is simply the overall quality of their organization. It doesn’t matter who you deal with, you will always get the same level of service and expertise. They must have an incredible staff development program and I am thankful that we are the beneficiary of that investment in their professionals.”
