DBusiness magazine honors the metro Detroit business professionals in their 30s who have achieved notable success in their respective fields. The class of 2022 included professionals across industries - including accounting. Loni Winkler, managing director and leader of the Great Lakes Regional tax practice, was honored for her accomplishments in a special feature published by the magazine and during a breakfast for the honorees.
Excerpt from her profile:
UHY has become Winkler’s second home. Over the past 18 years there, she’s gotten married, had kids, and risen through the ranks. Initially, the company planned for her to lead the Farmington Hills tax department. After two years, she was charged with leading UHY’s entire tax department.
As a result, she spends less time these days checking tax returns and more on advising and consulting clients on tax strategies. This has led her to believe, perhaps challenging generalized perceptions of accountants, that the core of the business is built on people and relationships.
“I like talking to people. You wouldn’t think that accountants do a lot of talking, but one of the most important things we do is advising and consulting with our clients,” she says.
