Accounting firm Plante Moran grows in Flint
FLINT, Mich. (AP) - Numbers are adding up to be a growth business in downtown Flint.
The Flint Journal reports that accounting firm Plante Moran has a staff of approximately 50 people and typically hires five to 10 a year since arriving in 2005.
Ken Leslie, managing partner at the Flint office, says internships provide candidates. The most notable supplier is the Flint campus of the University of Michigan. Leslie says people don't want to leave downtown once they're hired.
Bryan Karis, a graduate of Western Michigan University, joined Plante Moran full-time after an internship in 2011. He says the state has much to offer, especially the Flint area.
The area wants to attract and keep college graduates. Twelve percent of Genesee County residents ages 25 or older have bachelor's degrees.
