“McInnes Cooper’s partnership with Prescott Group has been positive since day one. The Staff at Prescott Group took the time to understand our needs and provided us with two wonderful employees who have been positive and productive additions to our workforce. Based on my observation, Katie and Jessica have been well received into our work environment, and they seem to enjoy being at McInnes Cooper as much as we enjoy having them here.”Lester Wood, Regional Director of Human Resources, McInnes Cooper
