Jonathan Foreman, Managing Director of Observatory Opticians, has been working with Grunberg & Co for more than three decades and has benefitted from the close support and advice of Partner Alain Stechler on a wide range of issues in that time.
He said: “I first met Alain in the early 1990s during the middle of the recession. It was a difficult time for many businesses and we weren’t happy with the service we were receiving from our former accountant at the time.
“From the very beginning, Alain was very assertive and set about assisting us straight away with our tax affairs, which allowed us to achieve a rebate that helped us continue trading during a difficult period.
“His approach remains the same today. When you are with him and other members of the Grunberg & Co team, the focus is always on you and your business.
“We like that Alain treats our problems or opportunities as his own. It’s like he takes ownership of the business during the time he is working with you and treats everything as if it was his own company.
“He is always proactive and ready to offer advice. The fact that he is backed up by such a passionate team is great. Grunberg & Co enjoys excellent consistency within its team, so you are often dealing with the same people time and time again, who understand your business and its requirements.
“If there is ever an issue that Alain or the team can’t handle, they are always quick to put us in touch with someone who can from their extensive list of highly skilled contacts.
“Perhaps, most importantly for many businesses owners, Alain is always trying to find new ways to save you money, help your business grow or provide a solution to your issues.
“I like that he can take a straight look at something and just come up with ideas that work, plus he is very easy to chat with, which helps.
“I have happily recommended Grunberg & Co and Alain to many others in the past, because I know they always deliver a great service.”
