A financial services firm has named its new regional managing principal.

Troy-based Rehmann said last week it appointed Chris Morse to the role for its Greater Michigan region, which includes Grand Rapids, Saginaw and Traverse City.

Previously, Morse had been serving as tax director. In his new position, he will advance client service capabilities in the region and focus on individual tax and wealth management clients.

“I’m honored and humbled to be trusted with leading such a great group of associates,” Morse said. “I’m looking forward to further sharing my passion for Rehmann with the Greater Michigan region.”

Morse replaces outgoing regional managing principal Wayne Pahssen.

Rehmann announced Morse’s promotion in conjunction with the promotion of John Pridnia, from regional tax director to firm-wide director of tax.

“John and Chris have proven to be great leaders and strong contributors at Rehmann,” said CEO Randy Rupp. “We are excited for their transition and look forward to their contributions and success.”

Morse’s background

Morse has worked in public accounting since 1986, with experience in tax, financial planning and business consulting to family-owned and closely-held businesses and publicly-held companies. He has done “extensive work” with clients in the construction, agribusiness, retail, hospitality, technology, engineering, manufacturing and energy sectors.

He is a board member at TRAVERSECONNECT and vice president of annual campaigns on the Boy Scouts of America President Ford Field Service Council. He previously served as chair and vice chair of the Traverse Bay Economic Development Council.

Morse holds a bachelor’s degree in business accounting from Walsh College of Accountancy and Business Administration and a master’s degree in taxation from Grand Valley State University.
