Dear Clients, Employees, Communities & Friends,
Although many are eagerly waiting for a new year and a fresh start, I find myself thinking of the last several months and feeling proud and humbled by the incredible things we made happen for our company, our clients and our communities.
It’s been a year of significant achievements across the board. In March, Accounting Today chose Yeo & Yeo as one of their 2021 Firms to Watch. The same month, we announced that Dave Youngstrom, CPA, was appointed CEO-elect.
In June, Yeo & Yeo was named to the Crain’s Detroit Business list of 25 largest Michigan accounting firms ranked by number of employees. And in July, Yeo & Yeo was named an INSIDE Public Accounting Top 200 Accounting Firm.
Together we’ve also made a remarkable impact in our communities through our employee-driven Yeo & Yeo Foundation, which to date this year has donated more than $50,000 to organizations across Michigan. The money we’ve given is bringing hope to people in need. It’s a cause we all are proud to support.
2021 brought many accomplishments, but as I look ahead to 2022, what excites me most is the opportunity we have to provide even greater value to our clients. Without your partnership, trust, and collaboration, we would not be able to succeed. It is with great sincerity that I say thank you for placing your trust in us.
As the year draws to a close, I want to remind our employees to take time to savor their personal and professional accomplishments and reflect on the impact they have had on those around them. I’m immensely proud of the work they are doing to help our clients and communities.
Serving as Yeo & Yeo’s CEO these past nine years has been the most rewarding time of my career. It’s certainly bittersweet going into retirement, but I could not be more excited about Yeo & Yeo’s future as we welcome Dave Youngstrom as the firm’s next President & CEO.
From my family to yours, happy holidays!
President & CEO
