Client Experience

Partners for the future

At Plante Moran, we’re not just focused on the issues of today. We’re always looking forward, working with our clients to put the future in focus and design strategies to make that future a reality. To do so, we make it a priority to learn each client’s individual goals and desires, versus taking a canned approach to their issues at hand.

We’re also in it for the long haul. With one of the lowest staff turnover rates in the industry, the same team will be by your side year after year, responding to your dealership’s distinct needs and tailoring future-focused strategies for continued success.

What’s it like to work with us?

In this short video, Kevin Flattery, industry leader and partner, touches on our “one-firm firm” model and how it leads to better client service: “We’re going to bring the right individual, with the right experience, at the right time, and the right discipline to find a solution for our client.” Learn what this means to our clients, how we serve them throughout their entire life cycle, and why we consistently earn their trust.

During this time, we have relied on their expertise to assist us in a multitude of areas, including tax accounting, cost segregation, valuations, acquisitions, growth strategy, employee benefits, and more.

I feel very confident recommending them to business people seeking a firm with all the resources of a large organization but with the personal attention of a smaller group.
