I enjoy visiting places that most people haven’t been, the more remote the better. I’ve travelled to Quebec’s Ungava Peninsula, and I’d love to travel to more remote locations one day. This is the best way to really enjoy the outdoors.

Doug Rober
Partner, CPA


I lead the construction practice for Plante Moran’s East Lansing office and various energy verticals for the Great Lakes region.  I bring a practical approach to problem-solving that my middle-market clients appreciate, as I help them strategize industry issues and best practices.  My clients include owner operated entities, private equity-owned businesses (PEG), and internationally owned businesses.

I have been with the firm more than 30 years and have continuously helped clients achieve their success through personal attention, constant interaction and planning. I focus on their success helping them create strategies around growth, acquisitions, and transition while they navigate the constant changes within their environment and industries.

I’m a member of the Construction Financial Management Association, the Associated General Contractors of Michigan, and the Michigan Oil and Gas Association. I have a B.B.A. in accounting from Western Michigan University.  I also belong to the AICPA and MICPA.

Besides accounting, I also love the outdoors. I enjoy fishing, hunting, boating and hiking with the family. We have a cottage on Lake Huron, so I’m on the water boating of fishing any chance I get.
