Grimbleby Coleman Puts the Heart in Community – and I Love That.
6/13/2016 We Won the STATEWIDE CalCPA Public Service Award! I often get asked why I am no longer working in the nonprofit profession here in Modesto; that is subsequently followed by a probing question inquiring when I plan to return. The answer is easy! My role as Marketing Manager here at Grimbleby Coleman CPAs bridges this gap in the most fulfilling of ways — so I won’t be heading back soon! After working in the non-profit world for more than 10 years, I’ve now managed to find a position where two of my passions — marketing and community activity — are encouraged to blossom simultaneously. I feel so strongly about this that I personally wrote the Grimbleby Coleman CPAs’ nomination for the Cal CPA Public Service Award. Each day I count my blessings that I found a place of work filled with inspirational, honest, and hardworking people. CalCPA Public Service Award Recognition This month, our firm was awarded the statewide honor of the CalCPA Public Service Award, exemplifying our commitment to firm-wide community support. The honor rewards visionary professionals, and the firms they lead, for extraordinary efforts in serving their communities. According to the award committee, we have demonstrated “firm-wide ethos exemplifying the community consciousness that all firms should adopt.” They went on to say, “We want to not only congratulate you for this achievement, but also hold you up as an example to others for adopting community service as a best practice.” Grimbleby Commun — I Mean, Coleman At Grimbleby Coleman CPAs, community service is more than just an opportunity to build relationships with the areas we serve, it’s part of our firm’s identity and mission statement: “Building success for and connections with our colleagues, clients and community … it’s the people behind the numbers.” Our commitment to social responsibility and serving people in our community is at the heart of everything we do. The “people behind the numbers,” is a constant theme that runs throughout our company; we care about one another and aim to support our associates with community involvement experiences. Our partners understand that being locally connected is more than just sponsoring a baseball team or having an annual employee food drive. They lead by example by serving as board members and lending their time, talent, and financial resources to many important local organizations. Our employees are encouraged to get involved in community organizations that speak to their individual passions; in fact, our employees are encouraged to take the time and flexibility they need to pursue volunteer opportunities through our policy of unlimited volunteer time off. 1,680 hours of team-wide civic and community service participation! 60+ events sponsored annually!

Featured Staff

After graduating from California State University, Stanislaus in 2009 with Bachelors in both Accounting and Marketing, Mike spent two years working in the accounting field before joining Grimbleby Coleman’s full-time staff in 2012. He brings to the firm a variety of skills, including tax, trust and estate knowledge, including preparation of court accounting, and experience with the rules and tax matters of nonprofit entities. When asked what he enjoys most about accounting, Mike states, “I have found the most satisfying part of this career to be building rewarding relationships” and “helping clients overcome their challenges.” 

Outside of work, Mike makes family his first priority, but also saves room for some interesting hobbies, including writing, golfing, tennis, and investing. He also finds time to volunteer with a variety of junior golf tournaments.  Mike has been involved in Toastmasters and is currently a member of the Stanislaus County Estate Planning Council. 

Mike’s favorite number is 8. “I used to love playing crazy 8’s with my grandmother. Also, if you turn it on its side, 8 is the symbol for infinity.” Perhaps 8 is also the Monday morning hour that his chow/lab mix, Freedom, begins scaling the walls in an attempt to “settle the score” with his garbage man. “I have videotape to prove it!” 

In June, you might find Mike near the beach or participating in one of his many favorite outdoor activities. In October, he’s rolling up his sleeves and helping with his father-in-law’s almond harvest. In January, it’s back indoors, where he will be “avoiding the cold temperatures and setting goals for the New Year.”
