"I have been a personal client of Acuma for the past 7-8 years, and in recent years this has also developed into a ‘Business Partner’ relationship through our respective companies. Our relationship, both personal and professional, has been built on the mutual trust and respect that we have for each other as business professionals and as individuals.
