Headshot of Preston Ridinger.

I have a twin sister and get asked if we have a telepathic connection a little more often than I would like to admit.

Preston Ridinger
Senior Manager


As a senior manager in the employee benefits consulting group, I advise clients on implementing and operating compliant employee benefits programs. I specialize in compliance reviews for qualified and non-qualified deferred compensation plans. While my clients span all industries, most of them are in manufacturing, professional services, not-for-profit, banking, hospitality, and government.

My clients appreciate my attention to detail. They know that I’m always trying to determine the root cause of any issue rather than applying a temporary fix that doesn’t dig into the “why.” I enjoy helping clients remain competitive in their most important asset, their people, and assisting them in providing for the needs of their employees.

Prior to joining Plante Moran, I worked in a human capital group at a Big Four firm, where I was exposed to employee benefits issues at large public companies. I have experience working with start-ups all the way to Fortune 500 companies.

I received a B.S. in biochemistry from the University of Maryland Baltimore County and a J.D. from the University of Maryland School of Law.

In my free time, I enjoy anything outdoors, including sporting events, hiking, yard games, and even a simple family barbeque.
