Financial firm appoints principals
A financial services firm based on the east side of the state has appointed two principals at its local office.
Troy-based Rehmann said last month it hired Kim Lindsay and promoted Mark Taylor as principals in the firm’s Grand Rapids office.
Lindsay will serve as the primary business advisor for governmental clients and lead financial statement audits, single audits and outsourced CFO engagements.
Taylor will continue working on the firm’s accounting, consulting and tax team, serving clients in the restaurant industry, as well as offering small business consulting and tax and financial planning services.
Prior to joining Rehmann, Lindsay spent more than three decades of his career in eastern Michigan.
“It’s an exciting new start for me after 34 years on a different side of the state,” Lindsay said. “I relocated to the west side of Michigan to be near to my family.”
Most recently, Lindsay was a partner at the Michigan CPA firm Lewis & Knopf CPAs, with locations in Flint, Brighton and Fenton.
He is a member of several professional organizations, including the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants, Michigan Association of Certified Public Accountants, Michigan Department of Education’s Audit Manual and Audit Referent Group, Michigan School Business Officials Association, Government Finance Officers Association and the Association of Certified Fraud Examiners.
He is a frequent speaker for industry organizations.
He received a bachelor’s degree from the University of Michigan-Flint.
Taylor started his tenure at Rehmann in 2011.
He began his public accounting career in 1985 and has experience performing accounting services for small business and individual tax clients. His consulting knowledge is in the areas of tax and financial planning strategies.
Taylor said he will use his position as a principal at Rehmann to help others grow.
“I view my primary purpose of being promoted to principal as the responsibility to lead by example and to mentor younger associates, so they can reach their highest potential,” Taylor said.
In addition to his CPA designation, Taylor is a certified financial planner and a chartered financial consultant.
Taylor earned a bachelor’s degree in business administration from Central Michigan University.
Rehmann is comprised of CPAs, consultants, wealth advisors and corporate investigators.
The firm has nearly 800 associates at 17 offices in Michigan, Ohio and Florida.
