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."
