The mantra, “There has to be a better way,” has always guided my client work. I believe there are always alternative ways to solve a problem, no matter how difficult the situation. It’s a philosophy I’ve tried to impart to my team. They know me for finding solutions that consider the needs of the business first, which is not necessarily the easiest path for an auditor. I work with a talented team of professionals, and I’m proud that we’re recognized as a dynamic, forward-thinking risk management team.
I’m frequently asked to speak to industry groups, such as the Institute of Internal Auditors and the Family Office Exchange, on current risk management issues. I belong to the AICPA, the Michigan Association of CPAs, and the Detroit chapter of the Institute of Internal Auditors. I received two bachelor’s degrees and an M.B.A. from Michigan State University.
I spend my free time traveling with my wife and our two beagles. I also enjoy playing golf, bowling, watching baseball, and cooking.
