Management Resources

We started Sereno because the staffing industry has some common problems that include:

  • Extreme pressure to deliver internal results driving the behavior of compromising on the quality of professionals they offer to
    their clients.

  • Business Development professionals who do not have a technical background and do not fully understand the scope of the client’s problem.

At Sereno, we only work with consultants with whom we have a relationship. These are professionals whose capability we have
validated, thereby dramatically reducing the risk for our clients. Our scoping process is done by professionals with technical backgrounds and depth of experience working with large, complex organizations. This results in better solutions and quicker results.

Our team members bring the following benefits to senior level Accounting, Internal Audit, and Tax leders:

  • Attacking challenges with a high sense of urgency and drive, similar to those of our clients

  • Technical background which uniquely equips us to quickly understand my clients’ problems and deliver better solutions

  • Access to the Top 100 consultants known for their ability to deliver strong results, thanks to my 20+ years of developing
    relationships in the sector
