Miles Putnam

I serve on the investment committee for a local money manager. Our firm invests about $300 million for about 200 clients. Half our client base comes from Michigan, with the other half peppered across the country. Our main focus is domestic growth equities. We also have a growing business in municipal bonds. I mainly follow companies in the retail and technology sectors.
There's more money in Southeast Michigan than people often assume. The auto industry made a lot of people rich over the years, and a good amount of that money is still here. The investment finance industry isn't nearly as developed here as, say, Chicago, but I'd bet that it's on the way up.

I work alongside the interactive marketing specialist to create effective and unique online marketing strategies. Managing and updating our various clients’ social media platforms, including Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn, with content is a daily task. Additionally, I generate keyword driven content, including blogs, and optimize them throughout client websites. I don't look at it as work because of how much fun and enjoyment I get out of it. Core3 is a great company to work for - everyone is hard working and dedicated, but most of all we have fun and love what we do.

Not many people can truly say that they love their job, so I know that I am extremely fortunate that I do. In my position, I am in charge of all marketing, events and promotions in the Detroit market. I began working at The Walt Disney Company through an internship at Walt Disney World immediately after graduating college. I returned home to Detroit and began working part-time in the Promotion Department at Radio Disney while holding other various marketing positions in the area. When the opportunity to move into my current position presented itself, everything fell into place. I am lucky enough to work with amazing people and for a brand that I am passionate about. The best part of my job is the ability to bring the magic of Disney to our local Families – the pure joy and excitement that they experience makes all of the hard work worth it!

After losing my position with an Ann Arbor company and being in sales for several years, I was approached by a Farmers District Manager to become an Insurance Agent with the idea of starting my own Agency. At Farmers, you're in business for yourself - but not by yourself. You have freedom as an entrepreneur, but can lean on the strength of one of the world's most established group of insurance companies. You also have help from a local district manager and corporate personnel. Farmers provides continual support in technology, customer service, marketing and education. From Auto, Homeowners, Life and Business Insurance, I appreciate being able to give and assist my customers with what they want and - more important - what they need for their current situations and their future dreams.

Rachel Brandell Mayers

I have always loved cakes, primarily because I find them to be the closest form of edible artwork.  I am thrilled to be involved in creating edible masterpieces that are equally delicious and gorgeous.  I also love that our refrigerator is currently packed with local damson plums so we can make jam for the coming year!  The support of local producers is a clincher for me.

My particular role, as Business Manager of a very small business, is somewhat to be a jack of all trades.  Which means a lot of variety! My main responsibilities include managing orders, maintaining financials in order to optimize business decisions, and marketing.  The part that I really love, which includes all of the above, is strategic planning: where are we going, and how are we going to get there?  That is so exciting!

My position at Group Golfer as Social Media Coordinator includes consistently growing the company online as well as through publicity in each region as we expand forward. As an avid golf enthusiast myself, this opportunity came to me at a time when I truly needed a refreshing and inspirational change of pace. After graduating college, finding a position in the golf arena in Michigan was looking hopeless. The offers to relocate for this industry specific work seemed appealing but my desire to stay in state with my family prevailed. I spent the past 3 years in general marketing positions but nothing that I could really be passionate about. After becoming a GroupGolfer customer and watching them rapidly grow for roughly a year, it occurred to me that I should look into a position at the company. After the sudden epiphany of pursuing a position, I realizing they were located only minutes from my front door, applied online and landed myself a position. The rest is yet to come! Just like other daily deal sites but with a focus on golf, GroupGolfer uses collective buying power to negotiate discounts with popular golf businesses. Subscribers can get email alerts on the latest deal and the deal only becomes active after a minimum number of people agree to buy, thus making it both beneficial to the course and customer alike. Working with a company that serves to nurture the growth of the wonderful game of golf is something I am energetic about and I look forward to growing in my new position.

Prior to obtaining the job at Rehmann, I worked for a small CPA firm that performed basic accounting, consulting and tax functions.  My desires to focus solely on tax lead me to Rehmann where I work in the tax consulting group. The majority of my time is spent assisting companies of all sizes and industries calculate and document the Research and Development Tax Credit incentive.  Other specialties that I am involved with are Energy tax incentives and general Federal tax compliance for individuals and businesses.  I work directly with Owners, CFO's, Controllers, Tax Directors and Employees to learn about their business and understand the new and improved products that are currently under development.  
I came to Rehmann for many reasons including, better opportunities to flourish as a CPA, a great work-life balance so I can spend time with my wife and four kids, but most of all Rehmann is a Michigan company.  It was founded in Saginaw, MI in 1941 and has grown all throughout Michigan the "right way," meaning, bigger is not always better.  Additionally, as I am finding out the people who work for Rehmann are great all the way from the professional support staff to the Principals.   
I chose to focus on taxation because I feel that my consulting can add value to Rehmann's clients by managing their tax attributes and that gives me the satisfaction that I helped the client instead of merely inputting numbers into a form or producing a financial statement.  Being an advisor to clients and focusing on client relationships is key to the success of any business.
