Marvin Taylor - Team Awesome | Red Granite - Outsourced Accounting

How did you end up working with Red Granite and ORBA? What path brought you here?

I handled all of the accounting for my family’s Trucking business. After my dad retired, I worked for a few other places but I never felt that my work was making an impact. When I was ready to look for another opportunity, I found Red Granite! Their commitment to helping entrepreneurs reach their goals by providing awesome accounting services really caught my attention.

Building relationships with my clients. I feel it is very important for our clients to be able to trust us with their financial information and allowing us to help them grow their business is a responsibility I do not take lightly.
