From heavy metal concerts to the DSO, I love all types of music. I learned to play drums at an early age and am now learning to play bass guitar.
Gerry Stein
Partner, CPA


I’m the director of tax for the Macomb office, and I’m responsible for the overall coordination and delivery of tax services for my clients. I advise business leaders on a variety of tax and business matters including buy or sale transactions, entity selection and structure, international tax, and multistate tax matters.

I started my career as an auditor, so I bring a combination of audit and tax experience that helps me understand the financial and operational impact of tax strategies. This helps me optimize a balanced, practical approach to tax savings for my clients.

I was originally attracted to this career because of the black-and-white nature of the business. A financial statement must foot; tax must be calculated according to laws. While these are still true, I’ve remained in this profession for greater reasons. The biggest reason? The relationships I get to build with staff and clients. Recently, I celebrated 20 years with the firm — and I’m still going strong. I love the wide variety of experiences I’ve been involved in and people I’ve worked with.

I received a B.S. in accounting from Walsh College. I belong to the AICPA and the MICPA.

Away from the office, I love spending time with my wife and our three kids. In the summer, we try to get on our boat — appropriately named “Family Time” — as much as possible.
