UHY Expands Again in Michigan; Joined By Baird, Cotter & Bishop

UHY announces it is expanding its already large presence in Michigan by joining with accounting firm, Baird, Cotter & Bishop, P.C. The combination of firms, effective June 12, 2023, adds 40 team members and two Michigan offices—one in Cadillac and the other in Traverse City.

Baird, Cotter, and Bishop traces its history back to 1924 when the practice was originally established in Cadillac. Baird, Cotter, and Bishop offers a full range of public accounting services including auditing, compilation, review, payroll services, tax planning, tax compliance, estate planning and estate tax compliance work. The firm concentrates heavily in audits of local units of government in Michigan. In the last two years, they have audited over 100 local units of government.

Regarding the combination, Trent Mulder, Managing Partner of Baird, Cotter and Bishop commented, “We’re thrilled to join UHY as it allows us to provide expanded services and resources to better serve our clients and additional opportunities for our employees. 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.

“UHY is excited about our continued growth in Michigan,” says Scott Miller, UHY Managing Director, who was instrumental in the combination. “We expanded into Western Michigan late last year with our combination with JVTR and are looking forward to expanding into Northern Michigan with the team at Baird, Cotter, and Bishop.”
