Jim and his team are extraordinary.

I hired the Hechtman group before I really even had a company. I knew, from day one, that I wanted to be buttoned up on every dimension. Jim and his team are extraordinary – they’re like catnip for an entrepreneur. They handle everything – from finance to accounting to payroll and reporting and even benefits administration – so I can focus on the things that create value for my company. My clients, and my team. I 100% recommend The Hechtman Group – the smartest partner a start-up can have.
