Our Response

by MICPA | Feb 13, 2019   ()

We wish to shine light on facts that have been left out of the story which broke today, about our Senior Vice President and CMO, Jim Jagger. Jim has been and continues to be a valuable member of our leadership team. Ours is an association of high integrity, and while Jim has been with us that has been our experience of his character. Our association represents CPAs in our great state, and while former Governor Snyder is a member and a supporter, the pardon granted by his office to one of our employees had nothing to do with his status, nor with a relationship.

With the help of his attorney, Jim submitted an application for a pardon to the Parole Board and his request was processed according to Section 44 of the Corrections Code. Our focus is on the Parole Board’s 9-1 vote in favor of the pardon, on the charitable man we know him to be, and on the strong leader and devoted father we see every day.

I’ve not yet formally announced my retirement, and when I do, a search committee will be appointed by our board of directors and will obtain a search firm. All candidates will go through the same just process before being considered for the role of president & CEO.
