Please join us in welcoming four staff to Plante Moran Living Forward (PMLF). New to the firm is Kyle DeHenau, and joining the senior living development team from PMLF affiliates are Brent Cousino, Atasi Bagchi, and Kelly Grinter.
“We’re very excited to continue to grow our team with professionals who have a variety of backgrounds,” said Dana Wollschlager, partner and practice leader of PMLF. “Each person brings tremendous value to the firm and our clients with their unique set of skills and experience.”
Brent Cousino, retired Plante Moran partner, joins PMLF
Brent Cousino, a retired Plante Moran partner and former CPA, has been a leader in the firm since 1997, when he led the merger of a CPA firm he cofounded, NCOT Accounting & Consulting, with Plante Moran. He helped build Plante Moran’s national senior living capital projects practice and cofounded what has become PMLF. Since retiring from the Plante Moran partnership in 2012, he has founded and grown a private advisory firm focused on the healthcare industry.
As part of PMLF, Brent will connect senior living communities with the firm’s resources to help them grow their enterprises through concept development, project planning and feasibility services, and related financing for major capital investments.
