His approach to partnership leads to high levels of satisfaction and clients who seek his participation, time and time again. His passion for this work will continue in his new role as senior vice president and general manager in West Michigan.”

Kulhanek joined the firm in 2001. Before his promotion, he was vice president of West Michigan operations.
