Headshot of Tony Rispoli

In my acres of woods, I plant and maintain vines that attract wild game. We invite a retired veteran to hunt with us. Also, I participate in Project Healing Waters Fly Fishing, a program for disabled active military service personnel.
Tony Rispoli
Business Developer


As a business developer, I work with prospective clients to identify, create, and execute a tailored company strategy by pairing them with the correct Plante Moran services. I specialize in the manufacturing and distribution, financial institutions, professional services, and healthcare industries.

The ability to meet and learn about business owners and senior management's challenges is what attracted me to this profession. I love to partner with them and provide solutions that work best to improve their professional lives and their businesses. It’s a satisfying feeling to see these hard-working leaders meet their company goals because I could help them in some tangible way.

I’m regularly asked to provide real-world networking ideas for the University of Akron's Master of Taxation class on personal and professional business development — a topic that will help students advance in their career. I received my B.A. in accounting from Baldwin Wallace University. I’m a member of Financial Executives International, the Association for Corporate Growth, and the Information Systems Audit and Control Association.

I enjoy spending time with my wife and my two adult children. Otherwise, I find time for motorcycles, fly fishing, and downhill skiing.
