A public accounting, technology and business consulting firm made new appointments to its principal group.
Maner Costerisan, a Lansing-based firm with an office in Cascade Township, recently promoted accountants Maddy Henry and Jordan Smith to principal.
Trey Williams, president of Maner Costerisan, said the firm is excited to welcome Henry and Smith to their new roles.
“Their leadership, commitment to excellent client service and team building skills are valuable assets to the firm,” Williams said.
Henry — a resident of Grand Rapids — joined the Maner team in 2012 and has worked closely with the firm’s small and mid-size business clients, providing tax planning services. She also contributes to Maner’s cannabis team and is a member of the Michigan Association of CPAs Cannabis Expert Panel.
Smith joined Maner as part of the firm’s merger with Stevens, Kirinovic & Tucker P.C. in January 2019. With 18 years of government auditing experience, he assists clients in finding solutions to budgetary constraints and internal controls while maintaining federal and state compliance.
In addition to the recent promotions, Maner Costerisan also named Jeff Straus, CPA and audit principal, to its board of directors. Straus assumed the board position Jan. 1.
“Jeff is committed to helping our clients and our team succeed,” Williams said. “He’s very passionate about doing the right thing and has a tremendous work ethic and sense of personal integrity. He brings a common-sense approach to assisting clients and team members. I look forward to the continued impact he’ll have on the firm in his new role on the board.”
Between the two offices, Maner Costerisan employs more than 170 team members. According to leadership, Maner is the sixth largest accounting firm headquartered in Michigan based on annual revenue.
