As market manager for the New Fulton Fish Market Cooperative at Hunts Point, Inc. since its establishment in 2005, George Maroulis oversees an operation that is the second largest seafood wholesale distribution center in the world, with millions of pounds of fish moving through its doors weekly and annual sales topping $1 billion.
Organizing the accounting system, providing accurate reporting to the government, and keeping all systems running efficiently are important factors in increasing sales in this state-of-the-art Bronx facility that replaced the seafood trading business originally known as the Fulton Fish Market in lower Manhattan.
That’s where KRS CPAs proves to be a valuable asset to Maroulis and his team.
“KRS are great accountants. I could ask for no one better,” said Maroulis. “They helped me build the business and organize the administration and accounting for this facility. They always give us good advice and as we grow they provides us with excellent recommendations. They are very knowledgeable and only a phone call away.”
“KRS have been trusted advisors. They recommended a specific vendor and software that would be economical and help handle our operations. They gave me a recommendation for hiring my office manager who has been with me since the building opened in 2005. KRS also supplied us with the name of an IT consultant… and we’re moving through that without a hiccup, in the right direction,” Maroulis explained.
How would Maroulis say other firms compare to KRS? “The accounting part is the accounting part. The payoff with KRS is that they understands our industry, so I can use them as advisors. Just knowing our industry and our needs, we can get to core issues quicker.
“I highly value the KRS team. They have our back,” stated Maroulis.
