Rich Antonini
Experience: I joined Plante Moran in 1991 because of the opportunity to serve family and closely held businesses, with a focus on serving companies within the manufacturing, distribution and transportation/logistic industries. Our team helps business owners and financial executives meet their audit and tax compliance needs, along with strategic planning, growth initiatives, and financial analysis. Clients appreciate that I’ve specialized in their industries for my entire career. Part of my role is to oversee Plante Moran’s West Michigan region. Our staff know me as a partner dedicated to empowering their professional growth. I enjoy the moments when our staff successfully expand their knowledge from theory to real-world applicability. Following my passion for service, I joined Plante Moran’s Inclusion and Diversity Council (IDC) in the fall of 2018 and currently serve as chair. The IDC focuses on three core pillars: talent, client, and community development and engagement. Our efforts to support our diverse team members include African-American and LGBTQ staff resource groups, leadership development initiatives targeting women, and work-life balance programs, to name a few. I’m active in many business and community organizations. As a firm, we’re committed to serving the industries we support and the communities where we live. From an industry standpoint, I’m a member of the American Trucking Associations, the Michigan Trucking Association, and a board member of the West Michigan Precision Metalforming Association. These organizations allow me to stay engaged in industry trends. I also have had the opportunity to serve on many community boards over my career. I currently serve on not-for-profit boards, including an inner-city Christian school, and a nonprofit that serves women and children at risk. I have a B.A. in accounting from Ferris State University, and I was the recipient of the Ferris State University Distinguished Alumni Award in 2011. Fun fact: I enjoy our state and will never pass up a chance to spend time with my wife and our four daughters and grandchildren; whether on the lake in the summer, outdoor activities in the winter, or vacations anytime anywhere. Times with my family are the experiences I treasure.

Experience: I assist K-12 school districts and not-for-profit organizations with their financial reporting so they’re able to focus on and fulfill their core missions. My clients appreciate that I take the time to get to know them and their businesses versus just the numbers on a piece of paper. I’m happy to have a career where I spend my time working with clients to help them meet their goals, especially in the educational and social service environments. After 27 years with the firm, I’m very proud of how we’ve increased our outreach to the next generation. One of my greatest accomplishments is helping to create our TRACK program, which is aimed at diverse college students who want to experience life at a public accounting firm. I’ve received the National Achievement in Public Accounting award from the National Association of Black Accountants (NABA) for my professional and community commitment and exemplary leadership. I’ve also been recognized as one of Leadership Oakland’s “Leader of Leaders” for my efforts mentoring and developing minority high school and college students. Other accomplishments include the Michigan Chronicle’s “Man of Excellence” award and Lawrence Tech University’s “Leaders Innovators” award. In 2019, I received the “Diversity and Inclusion” Award from the Michigan Association of Certified Public Accountants (MICPA). I belong to the AICPA, the NABA, and the MICPA where I participate on the Diversity and Inclusion Task Force. I have a B.B.A. in accounting from Eastern Michigan University. I enjoy spending time outside of work with my wife and two kids. Most people don’t know I’m also a collector of ’50s and ’60s music. Fun fact: I’m a college football junkie, and I have the hat collection to prove it — I probably have more than 60 hats from various colleges.

Committed to helping corporations become better global citizens through client and staff engagement and development, I have more than fifteen years of experience across multiple industries, including consumer products, health, retail, financial services, and public sector. As Plante Moran’s first Inclusion & Diversity Leader, I’m responsible for developing the firm’s diversity and inclusion strategies, providing insight to market trends, establishing partnerships to increase diversity, and conducting analysis to evaluate the success of current and future diversity programs. Prior to this role, I worked in management consulting, supporting clients by leading strategy, change management, and training initiatives to guide technology and compliance implementations, along with developing financial, health, monitoring and evaluation proposal assessments in emerging markets. I also led a key diversity partnership in support of national MBA recruiting and developed programs to retain staff hired through the partnership, along with supporting internal initiatives to increase diversity recruitment for consulting, advisory, and audit practices. Before my career in management consulting, I worked in commercial banking and financial services, managing investment portfolios for corporate mergers and acquisitions, building strategic plans and business strategies to increase clients’ cash flow opportunities, and creating business process policies for internal finance teams. My commitment to supporting diverse populations has taken on various forms throughout my career and includes creating a nonprofit in Houston, that provided stipends to underrepresented young women involved in the arts and matriculating to college, along with being heavily involved in health outreach programs. Originally from Chicago, Illinois, I hold an MBA in finance and strategy from Cox School of Business (Southern Methodist University) and a BBA in finance from Texas A&M University.
