What started in 1968 as a two-man operation in Southfield has evolved into one of southeast Michigan’s largest accounting firms. Founder Gordon Follmer, 81, is still largely a part of the business as he was 50 years ago. Several clients have been with the firm since day one.

In the year 2000, a multi-firm merger formed UHY, and today the company has 18 U.S. locations.

“Fifty years in business is a huge accomplishment in itself,” said Tom Callan, CEO of UHY’s Michigan practice. “Being able to enjoy the year-over-year growth and employee involvement and excitement makes this anniversary that much more special.”
