About

“My single greatest accomplishment,” says David Korte, who founded the firm in 2002, “has been the establishment of this boutique family wealth and consulting practice. My partner, Phil Kowatch, and I have been able to establish an independent practice which allows us to work with some of West Michigan’s wealthiest families and top-level corporate executives.”

According to Philip Kowatch who joined the firm in 2008 and became a partner in 2013, “David Korte has always been more than just an accountant to clients. He has also been a trusted advisor. Dave and I share similar skill sets and both of us are grateful for the opportunity not only to run a business, but also to serve our clients over the long term.”

When I heard he had opened his own business I thought it would be great to check out his office space. I know space and how it speaks about the values of a company. The Korte & Kowatch location said this to me: understated but smartly done. Dave selected a cool location downtown that suggested he had thought about how to keep overhead low but professionalism high. The site was perfect for a start-up that was going to work with many businesses. Bottom line, his space design said: “I can do this for you.”
