LinkedIn profile

"All of the people I've dealt with at Radix including Jill Hopkins, and Marc Rice have been very helpful, knowledgeable and quick to reply to questions but I want to single out Maria for taking a desperate call from me while she was away from the office and assuring me that what i thought was going to be the end of my business (a tax bill) was a simple oversight on my part and that she would file the appropriate forms on my behalf to make it go away. Not to mention the fact that she had to sort through my inexperienced spreadsheet to file my companies taxes and never once called me an idiot to my face. That is the kind of customer service that creates a loyal customer." - Shawn Hawkins, Tiger Town Brewing
