I worked with Dave Knight and his team when he was at DNGVL for Kimberly-Clark’s Sustainability Report assurance for several years.  Dave was flexible in meeting our needs for assurance, while working well within our organizational structure and desired outcomes for our report.  They were able to meet our annual timeline, while providing excellent feedback on areas in which we could improve and how to share that feedback to our leadership team.  It was a pleasure to work with Dave and his team.
