We believe in:


Long Term Relationships, Quality Service,

& Treating People Fairly.


Before starting ProNexus, in 2010, we worked at Fortune 500 consulting firms where Gross Margin was the number one concern: Bill at high rates, pay below market, zero support to the local communities.

We can personally attest to how difficult it is to feel good about the service you are providing when entrenched in that kind of culture.




Give Local. Buy Local.

      Give back to the local community.  Be good stewards of our communities.


Treat our clients, consultants, employees and strategic partners like family.


Solve client's finance, accounting and IT challenges. 


To us, it’s simple:

Do things the right way.

For the right reasons. 

Good things will follow.

Community Involvement

Giving back to the community is a founding principle of ProNexus. From practicing a give local, buy local and hire local mindset to making contributions to numerous charitable and educational causes, community involvement will always be one of our top priorities. Our donations and contributions include Golisano’s Children’s Hospital, St. James Mercy Foundation, Monroe Community College Foundation, The United Way, Starbridge, Bivona Child Advocacy Center, Willow Domestic Violence Center, ArtPrize, the West Michigan Hispanic Festival, and more.

St. John Fisher College Scholarship

Each year, ProNexus gives a scholarship to a promising St. John Fisher College accounting student who has demonstrated a high level of academic achievement but might not have the means to pay for their education. The scholarship is used to provide financial assistance to a full-time undergraduate or graduate student majoring in accounting and in pursuit of his/her CPA.

Camp Puzzle Piece

ProNexus is also a strong supporter of local nonprofit organizations that are meaningful to our community and to our employees, such as Camp Puzzle Peace. This organization is a local nonprofit that provides services and support to families dealing with Autism Spectrum Disorder and other developmental delays.

Volunteer Involvement

Many ProNexus team members chair events and serve on committees throughout the year.
