When he is not involved in the cut and thrust of accounting, Shane enjoys spending time with his family and friends. He also enjoys the occasional game of tennis or golf where time permits. Shane can also be found on the weekends encouraging his children with their sport and providing a taxi service.

We have found DFK OGC’s approach to everything from services provided to how they build relationships one that had worked well for them. We’ve found them to be down to earth, obviously knowledgeable about what they do and approachable as well. They always welcome the phone.

Any time I need them – any of the partners – they’re there to pick up the phone.
And they provide that service after hours as well, which is just great.
