“When you partner with a third party CCO, you need to know they are accountable and informed. We were highly selective through this process, and ultimately chose SEC3 because we felt secure their team would be proactive and ensure that we had a compliance program that would meet investor and regulator expectations. Not only have they done this, but our companies and staff, together, operate as a team.”
