"Amy's obvious compliance expertise is wonderfully complemented by a set of competencies well-suited to her role as a consultant. She gets down to business, tells you the way it is and provides you with a detailed roadmap to improve on your regulatory requirements. Amy then makes herself available to respond to questions after she has completed her assignment. What more could you ask from a consultant?" - Howard R. Zern, Executive Vice President, Chief Retail Banking, Operations and Technology Officer, Simsbury Bank
"We considered hiring a full-time Compliance professional, but decided that it was more cost effective to hire an outside consultant to work with our Compliance Committee. Sheehan Consulting was the perfect fit for our organization. Sheehan Consulting is very knowledgeable and thorough. I recommend them to any bank or credit union seeking to fill gaps in their compliance program...you won't be disappointed!" - Keith Wiemert, President & CEO, Seasons Federal Credit Union
