Rich’s arrival at the Scarborough office is the latest in a long line of good news for Fortus, with a raft of new senior Auditors recently appointed, and earlier in 2023, reporting a third successive year of growth.

"Rich’s pragmatic approach to the often complex financial world of business is a great addition to our team’s skillset and he’s going to be a key player in the next phase of our growth”.
