Our clients say

Cinnaire has worked with Plante Moran for nearly 20 years. The accountants and advisors at the firm are like family – they’ve watched our company grow over the years and have been a huge part of that growth. They have local presence and knowledge, but they also have strong national experience and are at the table for national policy decisions. We get the best of both worlds.
