Interview with the Partners of Veritas Inc

When George, Christine and Derek decided to start their own firm, they wanted something special. They knew they wanted it to be more than a place where people work. Veritas was born out of a need for personal relationships; customised services and collaboration between employees and Veritas.

Veritas’ fourth birthday is right around the corner, on the 1st of July. With the approaching celebration, we decided to sit down with the team behind Veritas and asked them a few questions about what Veritas means to them.

What does the word Veritas mean to you?

Professional service with integrity

What value of Veritas is the most important to you? Why?

Teamwork.  Without the support of our most valuable asset, our staff, we will not have a firm.

Which part of the job do you enjoy the most?

Developing young people and providing them with opportunities

Veritas means “Truth” in Latin, and that is what the three of them created. May Veritas have many more years to come.

What we value the most

Almost four years to the day we came together to start something special. We knew that we want something exceptional and out of this desire Veritas, with its unique values was formed.

We believe that values should drive our business. We are therefore motivated by five distinct values namely: knowledge; integrity; teamwork; innovation and resilience.

Our Knowledge is based on our deep rooted experience and a commitment to excellence in everything we do. You are guaranteed a knowledgeable team who will go above and beyond.

Veritas places a high premium on Integrity. We will ensure that we deliver the right message even through it might be a difficult discussion.  We believe in the importance of long term value adding relationships with our clients.

To Veritas Teamwork is to work together and to form a partnership between our staff and clients’ staff. This ensures good collaboration to meet the goals set for our assignments.  We encourage our employees to work harder every day, guaranteeing service with accuracy.

We push Innovation to unlock underlying potential, gathering ideas for today and tomorrow and above all to focus on what is important to you, our client.

There is always a solution, especially for complex problems. We are with you every step of the way. This is our promise of Resilience.

Knowledge, integrity, teamwork, innovation and resilience. Now let us change the game.
