Buck is an integrated HR, pensions and employee benefit consulting, technology and administration services firm. It was founded more than 100 years ago and was recently acquired by Gallagher, a US-based insurance brokerage and risk management services firm. Buck have seen high growth in recent years and are attracting high profile clients and as a result were receiving increased demand for a quality SOC (specifically AAF) report – a third-party evaluation of its internal controls.
Why did Buck choose to work with us?
Having historically used a Big 4 firm, Buck was seeking a new accountant that shared similar values to its own to undertake the reporting. Building a strong, long-lasting relationship, as well as delivering a high-quality product at a cost effective price were key priorities in its search.
Buck's journey to finding the right partner led them to Buzzacott through a recommendation from their US SOC reporting accountants, Schneider Downs, also a member of our Prime Global network. The alignment of values was crucial; both Buck and Gallagher share a commitment to excellence and high-quality service, which resonated with Buzzacott's core values of Specialism and Exceptional Service.
Buzzacott effectively delivered the signed AAF report within the agreed-upon timeframe and budget. Through regular weekly catch-up meetings, a strong rapport and working relationship were cultivated, enhancing the partnership and ensuring that we understood and addressed Buck's specific needs. Buzzacott's partnership with Buck not only met their immediate needs but also laid the foundation for a long-term relationship marked by shared values, excellence, and a commitment to delivering top-quality services
