UHY in Detroit, which provides tax and advisory services to entrepreneurial and other organizations, has expanded to Port Huron through a merger with Stewart, Beauvais, and Whipple. It will be UHY’s fifth office in Michigan, where it will expand into St. Clair County. Terms of the transaction were not disclosed.
Prior to the merger, UHY had more than 400 employees in Macomb, Oakland, Washtenaw, and Wayne counties.
“Reaching up into the thumb allows us to better serve our existing client base in the Bluewater area,” says Tom Callan, CEO of the UHY Great Lakes Region. “The addition of SBW deepens our resources in various practice areas and will present new opportunities for our staff and our firm.”
Harold Burns and Dan Markey, partners of UHY and members of the firm’s executive committee, have been involved in St. Clair County for decades. The involvement includes serving on boards of the SC4 Foundation, Community Foundation of St. Clair, St. Clair County Regional Educational Service Agency, Memphis Community Schools, and the Economic Development Alliance of St. Clair County.
“We are very excited about the opportunities that this merger brings to both firms and all of our clients,” says Mike Turnbull, former principal of Stewart and managing director of the Port Huron office. “Both firms have a great reputation in providing quality service, and this will only improve by bringing together our talented professionals. With UHY wanting to have an office in Port Huron, it is a testament to the economic growth happening in St. Clair County, and UHY will only help sustain this growth.”
Stewart employees were welcomed to the UHY family during its annual kickoff celebration at the Royal Oak Music Theatre.
