“I have more than ten years of association with Daren Fristoe and ‘The Fristoe Group’. Whenever I have found myself in need of insightful, practical and on topic advice, I have turned to them. While I was CEO of CLC, Inc. a nationwide service company and federal contractor, I encountered numerous issues beyond the experience and scope of our staff.
