Jim is one of only three leaders on the 2023 Michigan Top Workplaces list to receive this award. Winners were selected by receiving the highest scores when their staff was asked to rate their “confidence in the leader” of their organization.

Plante Moran has been a Michigan Top Workplace for 14 consecutive years and has earned the No. 1 spot in the large company category for the last four years.

The Detroit Free Press recognized Jim and two of his peers in their article, “3 Michigan leaders in 2023 rose to the top in the minds of their employees.” In the article, Jim shared perspective on his leadership style.

“I was sharing with somebody our org chart, and I’m at the bottom,” said Jim. “The person said this must be upside down, and I said ‘No, it’s not upside down.’ My job is to help the partners, who can then help the staff to serve our clients. I’m here to serve the rest of the firm.”
