How we're different

August 5, 2019 1 min read
Like other firms, we put a premium on technical expertise, but we also emphasize our people, their experience, and our culture. And that’s what makes us unique.

It sounds like the opening to a great joke, but it’s no joke — it’s our history. It’s unique, to be sure, but that partnership set the tone for 100 years of distinction.

So, what makes us different? Experience. People. Culture.

We have the experience and expertise to help you meet your business objectives. What’s more, our industry knowledge and staff know-how will provide a service model that fits your unique needs. Each client is different — embracing your specialized needs is part of our approach.

We have the right people for the right job. Our partner and senior manager-level participation brings a diversity of thought and experience to each engagement. No matter your organization’s size or ownership structure, we have a strategy that’s right for you.

We listen upfront to what you need, and we deliver on time.

We care. Our clients tell us we’re courteous and trustworthy — both fundamental parts of our culture. Most importantly, they say we deliver on our promises. In the course of work, we build relationships.

We listen upfront to what you need, and we deliver on time. Working with us will be a personal experience where you’re confident we’re looking out for you and putting your needs first. It’s the mark of Plante Moran.

And we’re relatively jerk-free. This statement, coined by philosopher and co-founder Frank Moran, is a modification of his original “no jerks allowed” policy because, as he conceded, we all have bad days and can be jerks occasionally. It’s policies like this that ensure you’re working with great people who enjoy what they do and who they’re doing it with — and who will treat you with the respect you deserve.

In short, we’re different not only because of what we do, but because of the experience our clients have working with us.
