There is great chemistry between the two firms and a strong alignment and vision for the future.”
The Cadillac and Traverse City offices will join UHY’s Great Lakes Region, which is the 5th largest accounting firm in Southeast Michigan with more than 600 employees located in seven offices in Ann Arbor, Detroit, Dowagiac, Farmington Hills, Kalamazoo, Port Huron, and Sterling Heights. UHY has been voted by the Michigan Business & Professional Association as Metro Detroit’s Best and Brightest Companies to Work For® - for the 18th year in a row.
“With this combination, UHY is proud to have nine total offices in the state of Michigan,” says Tom Callan, Great Lakes Regional Managing Partner for UHY. “Baird, Cotter, and Bishop has vast experience serving government entities, which will deepen our bench as a trusted service provider to the public sector,” Callan explains.
