Hurricane Ida Update

Our thoughts and prayers are with all of the people affected by Hurricane Ida. Ericksen Krentel team members have spent this week checking in on each other, our families, and our clients to ensure that everyone is in a safe position. Our New Orleans and Mandeville offices are currently closed due to power outages. We expect our Mandeville office to re-open shortly and will post the status updates of both offices on our website and social media as we know more details. We will do our best to assess the situation of our clients and people, and intend to return to each office as quickly as possible.
We have learned through our experience with past disasters and the ongoing pandemic to be adaptive to new technologies and have implemented cloud-based applications that allow us to efficiently operate remotely. In the interim, we are available to the extent that is possible in working remotely with our many affected clients and their personnel.
As recovery operations begin to take shape and progress, please do not hesitate to call on us to assist in your financial, tax, and other needs. You can reach your Ericksen Krentel professional directly through their normal email address or if you need immediate assistance, send a message through to receive a return call from one of our professional team members. We look forward to a complete recovery and once again working directly with our clients.
