Mike Marciniak: “The man behind the machine”
For 40 years, Mike Marciniak, Plante Moran Alliance leader, has kept returning to the ice rink in Toledo as a team manager for a local high school. See what motivates him and why he’s considered the hardest working man on the team.
The machine is the St. Francis de Sales School hockey team where Mike’s been the team manager for more than 40 years. For his decades-long commitment, Mike was recently featured in a video on BCSN Sports.
He first became involved with the team when his son played hockey in the early ‘80s. As a dad, Mike saw players — as well as parents — come and go from the program. With the continual changing of those who participated, he decided he wanted to be a constant for the team. And 40 years later, he’s still fulfilling that promise by laying out jerseys, doing repairs, booking hotels, and much more. As Mike says, “I’ll do whatever it takes to put the team on the ice.”
He’s lovingly been coined the hardest working man on the St. Francis hockey team for his steadfast contributions over the years.
Mike’s dedication to the hockey program at St. Francis mirrors his commitment to bettering the accounting services at Plante Moran. He retired from the firm in 2004, but he’s still actively involved today, serving as head of our Plante Moran Alliance group.
It’s an honor to have Mike work with us at Plante Moran, and we know the St. Francis hockey team feels the same.
