“What sets AML RightSource apart is our ability to collaborate,” said Ayers. “Collaboration is a pervasive part of our culture; it is how we partner with our clients, it is how the team manages the business, and it is why we have been able to open two new offices and nearly double our size in less than a year while remaining nimble. It is a privilege to be named CFO of a company with this kind of focus and potential for continued success.”
