The US-Canada border is littered with companies that couldn’t transition across it. But Ian “King Moves” Stoneberg can tell you about one that was a smashing success. He also knows a thing or two about Oil and Gas Accounting – going all the way back to when people smoked cigarettes in the office, “Mad Men” style.
