“Government contractors serving the U.S. federal government and its agencies are constantly required to comply with numerous accounting, financial reporting, and regulatory requirements, some of which are highly complex. They are endlessly searching for in-depth knowledge, expertise, and practical solutions delivered in the most effective, efficient, and innovative ways and at the highest level of quality,” said Adams. “I’m looking forward to working with my colleagues at CrossCountry to expand our team at a greater scale and build on our strong foundation of integrated service offerings to deliver value to our government contracting clients.”
