Maner Costerisan is extremely knowledgeable, not only about accounting and internal controls, but also about our organization, how we function, and what we need as we grow.
We’ve worked with them for many years because they truly care about our organization and want to help us make it the best it can be!
The team at Maner Costerisan is the best! Everyone cares and is so easy to work with.
Kay Udry, Schiffer Mason
Maner Costerisan’s expertise and professionalism is second to none! We have had the same two accountants managing our account for over 20 years and that alone speaks for itself.
They have always provided us with excellent financial and auditing services. We feel extremely confident that they are managing our financial matters with the utmost care and level of expertise.
The ownership of our company changed in 2008 and our Maner Team was integral in helping us successfully develop and process the buy/sell transaction. They worked very closely with us and our law firm through the entire process and also provided financial information, which became part of our legal documentation for the transaction.
The Maner team serves us extremely well! They are personable, knowledgeable and always respond to any questions or concerns we have in a professional and expedient manner. They have made a recognized effort to maintain our 20+ year relationship.
Ted Alberta, Portland Products, Inc.
We regard personnel at Maner Costerisan as key members of our team and we interact with them on many levels: monthly financial statement preparation, business performance benchmarking, tax planning and preparation.
Being able to take advantage of the value-added programs they provide, such as their Closely Held Business seminar, is extremely advantageous to our company. We benefit from these interactions by knowing that all will feature personalized service, professionalism and integrity.
These and other positive attributes solidify an already comfortable relationship and the proactive nature of their services assures that we are able to take a step back from day-to-day operations, in order to keep looking forward.

Their expertise runs the gamut of industries and services and I am confident that whatever issue we encounter, the professional staff at Maner Costerisan can guide us through it. They are knowledgeable, engaging and proactive. Having critical financial information when we need it, along with a trusted objective opinion has benefited our organization immensely.”
Linda Mulder, Grand River A&W
In our relationship with Maner Costerisan, we have been extremely impressed with the quality of their work, the professionalism they display and timeliness of the information they provide.
It has been advantageous to experience the consistency of having the same point of contact on the Maner team, Peggy, for many years. She has extensive knowledge and understands our business inside and out.
The knowledge that each person at Maner Costerisan brings to our account and their expertise in various fields, including retirement, taxes and financial statements gives us peace of mind.
Mike Hagerty, Kent ISD
“Kent ISD has been a Maner Costerisan client for 4 years and I have worked with them on other engagements for over 15 years. The service they provide is nothing short of amazing. They are knowledgeable, proactive, responsive and committed. I have never encountered a Maner Costerisan professional that wasn’t the best at what they do and there isn’t another CPA firm in the area that has their expertise in the education field.
What really impresses me most about Maner Costerisan is simply the overall quality of their organization. It doesn’t matter who you deal with, you will always get the same level of service and expertise. They must have an incredible staff development program and I am thankful that we are the beneficiary of that investment in their professionals.”
Mitch Tomlinson, President and CEO, Peckham, Inc.
“I have been working with Maner Costerisan for over 35 years. That fact alone speaks volumes about the confidence I have in their services and the respect I have for their people I expect nothing less than exceptional service and quality work and that is what they deliver each and every time. They are driven to success, experts at what they do and committed to my needs as a client.
Serving a nonprofit isn’t always easy. There is a mountain of legislation to stay on top of, countless rules and regulations to be followed and a never-ending effort to use precious funds wisely. Maner Costerisan not only excels at these tasks, they take them on personally. Retaining a CPA firm is one thing. Having a true partner that supports our mission is something entirely different. Maner Costerisan doesn’t just talk about supporting their clients, they show up and get involved.”
Robin Reynolds, Ingham Health
The biggest benefit of working with Maner Costerisan for over 16 years now is that they are a true full service accounting firm. I am highly impressed with their level of expertise with county health plans.
Besides providing us with accounting and consulting services, the team at Maner Costerisan is very accommodating. They do everything from routine financial assistance to providing staff internal to our organization. I love the fact that if the Maner team does not readily know the answer, they will always find it.
Jim McNeeley and the team are like “regular people,” not the dry, stereotypical “accountants.” The team we work with serves our organization very well and my interactions with them are consistently positive. They are more than willing to explain things in layman’s terms.
I would not work with another firm!
Nan Pearson, Michigan Association of School Boards
The most valued benefits we’ve enjoyed in our time with Maner Costerisan have been trust and reliability. They do quality work and though they are a larger firm, they have a small firm feel, in terms of accessibility and customer assistance.
The Maner staff has the depth of knowledge and resources to ensure that any issues are resolved in a timely manner. We’ve used them for both Audit services and Systems services – the added value has definitely been the trainings they offer, in order to introduce new products and services. Their Lunch & Learns are terrific and have been invaluable to us.
I’ve personally referred friends and colleagues to Maner several times.
Bob Brooks, LeDay Inc.
“The people at Maner Costerisan are great! What really stands out to me is their level of service and expertise. They are professional, prompt and responsive to our needs. If I have a question, I am confident they will have an answer. They know the regulations and keep us up to date. Going through an audit or tax engagement isn’t exactly a party, but our team at Maner always makes it as enjoyable as it could possibly be.”
