Accretive Solutions Sets Up Disaster Relief Fund

Accretive Solutions, Inc. has established a Disaster Relief Fund for the victims of Hurricane Katrina. Each dollar donated by an Accretive Employee will be matched by Accretive up to a total of $25,000. All funds will be allocated to the American Red Cross.

“We wanted to do something to help. Through this fund, any contributions our employees planned to make on their own will have twice the impact,” Joseph V. Amella, President and CEO of Accretive said in announcing the creation of the fund. “We’d also welcome the opportunity to assist any of the victims with finding employment in the financial field. Our service groups, Horn Murdock Cole and Dickson Allan specialize in providing professional services in accounting and finance, enterprise governance and business and technology. We’re always seeking qualified employees for our network of offices throughout the U.S. and helping someone who is out of employment due to this disaster would make it an even more gratifying situation.”

Accretive Solutions is the leading, privately-owned, professional services resource in the nation specializing in accounting, finance and information technology. The company has representation in New York, Texas, Michigan, California, Florida, Georgia, Minnesota and the metropolitan area of Washington, D.C.
