On September 28, 2012, New England Credit Union Services LLC (NECUS) Audit Services has transitioned to new ownership as Kathy Enderlin, senior vice president, audit services, retired. Audit Services’ staff (Mike Moreau and Francesca Szafranski) began work at Macdonald Page & Co. LLC (Macpage) on Monday, October 1, 2012.
Macpage, a well-known and respected CPA firm with 90+ employees located in South Portland and Augusta, Maine, began working with NECUS on a variety of projects in 2011. The firm has been auditing credit unions for over twenty-five years and has a great deal of experience with credit union clients throughout northern New England. Over the past year, Macpage partnered with NECUS Audit Services to deliver annual, compliance, and internal audits.
“We want to be sure that our credit unions will continue to receive high quality audit services,” stated Kathy Enderlin. “Macpage has demonstrated that they not only know the audit side of the business, they understand credit unions, both the philosophy and operations. Macpage’s Credit Union Division, led by Mark Ayers, is willing and able to work with management to provide the custom-designed audit programs credit unions are used to receiving.”
Macpage is looking forward to building relationships with new credit unions in Massachusetts, New Hampshire, and Rhode Island. Macpage President Graham Smith states, “Our relationship with NECUS evolved organically. What began as a casual conversation about possible collaboration has resulted in a full partnership. We are thrilled to be welcoming our new staff and to continue the tradition of excellence that has been the hallmark of NECUS Audit Services.”
NECUS is committed to ensuring a smooth transition for all client credit unions according to President Daniel F. Egan, Jr. “Macpage has proven to be a trustworthy, flexible, and professional partner for our credit unions. We are happy to know that our current Audit Services staff will continue working with our credit unions on behalf of Macpage. The additional advantage of having CPAs on staff will only augment the services our credit unions will have at their disposal.”
