Our Staff

TRUMANS’ FOUR EXPERIENCED PARTNERS build strong relationships with our clients. A partner assumes prime responsibility for every assignment and client we take on. For larger clients, we appoint two partners and a manager, so you will always have access to someone who knows your business inside out.

Our high staff retention rate means continuity of key people working with you – we develop a strong understanding of both your business and your industry.
