Part of my job is to oversee our West Michigan region, which includes offices in Grand Rapids and Kalamazoo. We’ve combined as a collective entity to provide business leaders with a wide range of resources and, in turn, to broaden the reputation of Plante Moran as a world-class client service provider. Our staff know me as a partner dedicated to empowering their professional growth. I enjoy the moments when our staff successfully expand their knowledge from theory to real-world applicability.
I’m active in many business and public organizations. As a firm, we’re committed to serving the industries we support and the communities where we live. From an industry standpoint, I’m a member of the American Trucking Associations, the Michigan Trucking Association and a board member of the West Michigan Precision Metalforming Association. These organizations allow me to stay engaged in these industries. I also serve on a few community boards including The Potters House Christian School and Wedgwood Christian Services, along with a number of other community boards for most of my 30 year career.
I have a B.A. in accounting from Ferris State University, and I was the recipient of the Ferris State University Distinguished Alumni Award in 2011.
