ShindelRock grows staff & revenues, plans internship program

ShindelRock is planning to do some hiring, but the company is basing its growth on both external and internal resources.

The
Novi-based accounting firm has hired two people in 2010 and expects to
add a couple more this year. However, the 25-person company is looking
for people that are interested in growing their career through the
company’s ranks in the long-term. It’s also planning to start an
internship program this summer.

“We’d like to start growing some people internally,” says Steve Wisiniski, partner with ShindelRock.

The
20-year-old company focuses on core and tax accounting and is growing
in litigation and forensic accounting. That has allowed ShindelRock to
grow its revenue by 9 percent in 2010, and it expects to score similar
numbers this year. That should allow it to compete with companies not
its own size, but bigger.

“We don’t see our competition as our
size or smaller,” Wisiniski says. “We have really tried to streamline
for costs savings across the board. It allows us to handle more complex
clients. We see our competition as bigger firms like Plante Moran.”
