The Firm was established in December of 1969. During the initial years, the practice concentrated on the area of closely-held corporate tax and personal tax planning, including estate planning, accounting and tax matters.
As years passed, the area of audited and unaudited financial statements and the CPA’s role relating thereto became increasingly more complex. It was determined that an additional partner was needed. Robert G. Frohm joined the Firm as a partner on January 1, 1974. Mr. Frohm was previously an Audit Supervisor with the Port Huron office of Ernst & Young (formerly Ernst & Ernst). He brought extensive tax experience to supplement his audit expertise, which contributed to the growth of the firm.
In October 1982, R. Thomas Cummings, manager of the Ernst & Young office in Port Huron joined the firm as a partner. He brought to the firm 18 years experience in public accounting with a specialization in tax; he retired January 1, 2002.
To continue quality service to clients and to further strengthen the leadership team, Michael T. Kelley joined the Firm on October 2, 2000 followed by William J. Butler on September 1, 2001. Mr. Kelley contributed not only broad public accounting knowledge but extensive experience in the banking industry, which included mergers and acquisitions. Mr. Butler brought thirteen years of public accounting experience specializing in tax, in addition to spending several years in the private sector acquiring in-depth knowledge of managing a closely held corporation.
On August 1, 2007, Patti Ryan merged her practice, Ryan and Associates, P.C., to become Frohm Kelley Butler & Ryan, P.C. Patti brought twenty-seven years of public accounting and tax experience specializing in medical practice management with an emphasis on physician compensation agreements.
In conclusion, the Firm is well-suited with the aforementioned leadership, and a highly skilled staff to provide a wide range of quality services.
