I see my role as a champion for my clients. At Plante Moran, we try to deliver creative solutions to their challenges and help them save money. Whether I’m working with franchise owners, the C-suite of multi-unit organizations, or law firms, I provide accounting, tax, and consulting services that help them meet their objectives. I also specialize in benefit plan audits and serving municipalities. I work with politicians every day and I know the expertise that is necessary to allow them to do their best job — which is serving the public.
I am the Macomb office managing partner and it’s not just because I have the most experience in the office or I love telling stories. I’m recognized for my investment in staff members’ careers. In this role, I have the privilege of mentoring staffers who’ve become partner. I’ve also helped launch the franchise practice, which has contributed to the growth of the firm in various niche industries.
Occasionally, I give public presentations to municipalities and governments on matters of government finance. I’m a member of the AICPA and the Michigan Association of CPAs, and I’m the treasurer for Leadership Macomb. I have a B.B.A. in accounting from the University of Michigan.
When I’m not serving my clients, I’m devoted to my wife and three daughters and to the church I helped launch 17 years ago. I’ve fostered its growth from 40 or so original attendees to more than 2,000 today.
