Accounting firm appoints principal
A Michigan accounting firm has named a new principal at its Grand Rapids office.
Troy-based Rehmann said this month it appointed Erik Schumacher, CPA, to the role.
His responsibilities include helping clients manage their tax obligations, while staying current with compliance and reporting requirements.
The firm described Schumacher as “a thought leader.”
Schumacher has served a broad range of clients across multiple industries, including manufacturing and energy.
He also has “substantial experience” serving clients with complex equity structures.
Prior to joining Rehmann in 2018, Schumacher worked at Plante Moran for 10 years, providing tax consulting and compliance services to large companies with international or private equity ownership as a member of the firm’s manufacturing, private equity, merger and acquisitions and international teams.
Schumacher frequently speaks on tax matters to associations and groups, including the Michigan Oil & Gas Association’s annual conference.
He also recently served as board treasurer for the Northwest Michigan Toys for Tots Foundation and the New Meadows Co-owners Association.
He holds a bachelor’s degree in accountancy from Ferris State University.
Rehmann is comprised of CPAs, consultants, wealth advisors and corporate investigators.
Its recent merger with Trivalent Group expanded its technology capabilities and allowed it to launch a managed IT solutions practice.
The firm has nearly 800 employees at 17 offices in Michigan, Ohio and Florida.
