Saginaw, Mich.-based Rehmann (FY14 net revenue of $107 million) principal Randy Rupp succeeds Steven Kelly as the firm’s CEO, effective July 1. Kelly will continue to serve as the financial services firm’s chairman of the board.

“Randy has been deeply entrenched in firm operations for years and is a principal architect of the great strides we’ve taken since he joined us more than 30 years ago,” says Kelly. “He’ll continue helping the firm fully realize its strategic plan and ensure that Rehmann clients receive best-in-class service.”

Rupp started his career with Rehmann as an intern in 1982. In 1993, he was named a tax principal in the firm’s Saginaw office. He joined the board in 2003 and has served as vice chair for nearly a decade.

“Our ongoing goal is to ensure that clients continue to see their Rehmann advisor as more than someone who prepares a tax return or manages assets,” says Rupp. “Ideally, he or she will be seen as a trusted business advisor — someone who delivers more than just what’s required, but is a true partner.”
