SST Client Spotlight: City College

On the last Friday of every month, SST hosts a firm-wide luncheon. During our July luncheon, our team members were asked to discuss clients who were exemplary in their communications and support during our audit team’s busy season. SST audit supervisor, Russell Perry, spoke briefly on how pleased he was working with City College.

“I thoroughly enjoy working with Lisa Fendell, Vice President of Finance at City College. Lisa is proactive in reaching out to me to schedule the College’s annual audit. She is a licensed CPA with previous external auditing experience, as well as many years of experience leading the accounting department of City College. The benefit of her cumulative experience is that she knows what it’s like to be in my shoes as an external auditor and she has a thorough understanding of the education industry. Lisa and her accounting department are always prepared for my team and I when we begin our scheduled audit fieldwork. In fact, they are so prepared, that we can turn around their audit in about one month’s time. I have a lot of respect and admiration for Lisa and her accounting department”.

City College was originally founded in 1984 in Fort Lauderdale, Florida under the name Draughon’s College of Business. The college has now grown into a multi-campus and virtual institution, with its headquarters in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. These campuses serve thousands of students throughout the State of Florida. The college’s growth has been successful under the stewardship of the Fike family. “C.M. Fike II and his wife, Esther, recognized the need to provide students from diverse backgrounds with practical, hands-on career education to help them achieve their personal and professional goals.” In hopes of providing their students with practical career opportunities, City College now offers many diverse degree programs including accounting, broadcasting, veterinary medicine, plus many more.

Thank you, City College for allowing SST to continue to serve your accounting needs. We appreciate you and your team as a model client.
