Michael Modified

President, CMA & EA


Personal interaction with clients is key to understanding their unique situation.  I have over 30 years in the accounting industry serving thousands of individuals and small businesses.  Spending the time to get to know each client personally helps me apply the knowledge I have gained to their specific needs.  Because I am a small business I can relate to many of the issues my clients deal with and can help them overcome obstacles and warn of pitfalls as they grow.

I oversee the operations of the firm founded in 1989.  I primarily focus on providing consulting services to clients in the areas of business planning and budgeting, tax planning, growth and succession planning.  I work with clients to better understand their financial statements to help them be a better manager of their own business.

I have a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration with a concentration in Account from Lake Superior State College.  I am an Enrolled Agent and a Certified Management Accountant.  In my spare time I enjoy spending to with my family and friends playing tennis and golf.  I also have a passion for hunting, hiking and diving or snorkeling.
