I am an Accredited Business Accountant with more than 20 years of experience. My accounting journey began right out of college by working for an accounting firm in Big Rapids, MI. In addition, my path, took me to a controller position with a manufacturing company before starting my own accounting business. The Mammen Group Inc. was formed in 2001 after five years as a sole proprietor.
I truly love what I do, which is teaming up with businesses to assist them with knowing where they are financially, a necessary component to any business model and secure lifestyle.
