Headshot of Terry Olejnik.

I love seeing new places, trying new foods, and learning about different cultures. I’ve traveled to three continents; visited more than 30 U.S. states; and been to 30+ countries, including 18 in Europe. I’ve even been glacier-climbing!

Experience
As a lead partner in the firm’s insurance services group, I offer assurance, tax, and consulting assistance to property and casualty and health insurers, self-insurance pools, and domestic- and foreign-domiciled captive insurance companies.

I also specialize in the construction industry, with clients ranging from asphalt paving companies to bridge builders to general and specialty trade contractors. In a sense, all of my clients are builders — they work every day to build a safer world.

Clients appreciate my deep industry knowledge because it helps them make informed decisions. And my no-nonsense approach means no surprises, timely responses, and a high-quality product.

Around the office, colleagues know me not only for my industry expertise, but also as a mentor and coach. I enjoy learning about people and sharing my experiences. I love mentoring and coaching people to help them achieve success. In fact, my desire to help others succeed personally and professionally is what attracted me to an accounting career.

I often give presentations to clients and industry observers about topics related to accounting, tax, and ethics. I belong to the Insurance Accounting & Systems Association, where I sit on the 2020–2021 Management Team, the Association of Governmental Risk Pools, the Public Risk Management Association, the AICPA, and the MICPA. I have a B.B.A. with a concentration in accounting from the University of Michigan-Dearborn.

Outside the workplace, I live an active life. My daughters keep me very busy with soccer, dance, gymnastics, and school activities. I thoroughly enjoy traveling with my family. I also like working out and reading.
