Sterling Heights, MI (PRWEB) July 30, 2013 -- Starting with a history that dates back to 1968, UHY LLP has since organically grown to become Macomb County’s largest accounting firm. Moving their Macomb presence from one Mt. Clemens location to another, and then to its current residence in Sterling Heights, this particular office employs 113 employees and occupies over 38,000 square feet of space, making them the largest accounting firm in Macomb County.
With growth, comes change. “We are in the process of renovating and expanding our Sterling Heights office to accommodate all of our recent hiring and make certain technological improvements”, says Dan Markey, Office Managing Partner. “We have been growing organically, not only through our core audit and tax practices, but by our various consulting and specialty groups as well. Macomb County has been very good to us over the last 33 years providing dynamic professionals and a strong base of privately-held businesses.” Originally, the firm occupied only the fifth floor of the building. The firm has now expanded into a number of suites on the fourth floor.
It’s not just their size in Macomb County that’s significant; it’s also their involvement in the community, both for business purposes and their own pleasure. Here’s a sample of their management team’s past and present involvement exclusively in Macomb County:
• Finance committee member of Macomb County Chamber of Commerce
• Treasurers and chairpersons for various Macomb County political campaigns
• Reserve officer for Macomb County Sheriff’s Office MACE (Macomb Area Computer Enforcement) Unit
• Chairperson for March of Dimes “March for Babies” Lake St. Clair Metropark
• Board members and treasurer of Michigan Lupus Foundation in Macomb
• Board member of M-59 Corridor Association
• President and board member of National Tooling and Machining Association in Macomb
• Board member of Salvation Army Planned Giving Committee in Macomb
• President, treasurer, and vice chairperson for Sterling Heights Regional Chamber of Commerce and Industry
• Community council member for Selfridge Air National Guard Base
• President of Utica/Shelby Township Kiwanis Club
• President of Venetian Club and Mutual Aid in Macomb
• Board members of Winning Futures in Macomb
• Member of Financial and Estate Planning Council of Macomb
• Member of Greater Romeo-Washington Chamber of Commerce
• Members of Knights of Columbus in Macomb
The professionals also have a strong sense of loyalty with the firm. With a combined total of more than 400 years of commitment, the average tenure for their partner/principal group is 20 plus years, of which over half of them came fresh out of college and have stayed their entire career.
The renovation project began in June and had a target completion date of the end of the year.
The firm plans on hosting a number of open houses for the community once the renovations are completed. Please stay tuned for future updates.
