Joe Vloedman, CPA
Audit Manager, Plante Moran

As an audit manager, I oversee audit engagement teams and serve as a client relationship manager. In addition, I belong to the firm’s professional standards group. As new rules or industry trends emerge in the ever-changing financial services landscape, I help develop solutions and education for our teams and our clients. My clients include community and regional banks, and I also have extensive experience with private equity funds.

Throughout my career, I’ve presented at many conferences and webinars for various executive forums, board and audit committee meetings, and various state banking organizations, and the Financial Managers Society. I'm also a frequent presenter at Plante Moran’s internal trainings. I’m energized by the opportunity to distill complicated financial matters down to actionable, practical solutions.

Services provided to my clients include financial statement audit, internal controls testing, allowance model validation, and consulting on new accounting standards. Since 2016 I have consulted with dozens of institutions on CECL implementation, as well as several software providers to assist in their development of CECL platforms.
