Message from Managing Partner, Gordon Krater

Gordon Krater

Thank you for taking the time to learn about Plante Moran. Those who get to know us recognize that there is no place quite like Plante Moran.

What differentiates our firm? We focus on people, our clients and our staff. We believe that our clients are the center of all we do and their satisfaction is our primary concern which is why we are focused on our staff. We strive to create an environment that the Partners and staff enjoy. As a result, our clients are served by people who enjoy what they do.

Clients who work with us quickly recognize that we are committed to their success, and they receive great service and solutions as a result. Expertise in each client’s industry, individualized attention, and client service team members who are committed to quality, integrity, and professionalism are key elements in how we serve each client.

Further, we are guided by the golden rule when we are dealing with both clients and staff. We treat our clients and staff like we would want to be treated. For clients, this means we do what we say we are going to do when we say we are going to do it. Clients don’t have to worry about surprises and will be well informed along the way.

For our people this philosophy of treating people the way we would like to be treated means we have a collaborative and nurturing work environment where people are given the opportunity to grow. We’re the only firm I’ve ever encountered to state that we are “relatively jerk-free.” Our culture is built upon specific core purpose, values, and principles that have served us for more than 85 years.

For the past 16 years, Plante Moran has been a one of FORTUNE magazine’s list of the '100 Best Companies to Work For' in America. We’ve also been cited by Human Resources Executive Magazine as one of the 18 best places to work for millennials. Our winning culture translates into strong staff retention, more efficient use of our clients' time and more opportunity for staff to collaborate on projects. All of these result in an unparalleled experience for our clients.
