James Meyer, MBA, MCP, Principal,
Technology Business Development Director

James brings more than 35 years of expertise to Maner Costerisan’s Technology team. His decades of experience recommending, implementing and consulting on mid-market enterprise resource (ERP) planning solutions and related technology have been essential to the growth and expansion of Maner’s Technology practice.

James serves as a trusted advisor to organizations across a variety of industries, with particular focus on associations, foundations, distributors, manufacturers and healthcare providers. James joined Maner in 2006 to help build out the firm’s technology group. He previously served as department director and currently leads the team’s sales strategy and business development efforts. Prior to his tenure at Maner, James spent several years working for accounting software companies, and served as a management consultant for Ernst & Young. An entrepreneur at heart, James started his own Value Added Reseller (VAR) company, which was named the Great Plains Software Reseller of the Year in 1994 and received President Club and Inner Circle recognition for ten years in a row. James sold his company in 2000 to join a dot com startup prior to joining Maner.

Passionate about solving accounting and technology problems for clients, James loves architecting and recommending technology solutions that offer the highest possible ROI for clients. He credits his success to his client-first approach and willingness to continually invest in learning.

James loves to be active, and he and his wife hike, bike or play golf almost every day. One of his personal goals is to visit and hike every National Park in the United States. To date, he’s visited 42 of the 61 parks across the country. James resides in Ann Arbor, Michigan with his wife, Dawn. The pair have four sons and seven grandchildren.

Technology is always changing and it is a challenge to keep up. It is well worth it, though to invest in learning and staying on top of the latest tech updates, when you see the impact that your recommendations can have on our clients and their businesses. It’s what keeps me excited about coming to work each and every day.
