Skip Cerier

What educational, entrepreneurial or business development programs, if any, have you taken advantage of?
I have a business degree with an emphasis in accounting. This is my tenth business start-up. It has been our most successful.

Who was your first customer and where did you find them?
Our first client was Eisenhower High School in Utica. They had been a client of our Graduation Foto division and took a chance on our new service.

Where did you find your first employee?
I had a number of employees from another business that came on board when we started.  

Have you promoted an intern to employee status, and if so how many times have you done it?
Just once, so far.

Where have you turned to find capital to grow your company and which institutions have provided it?
Comerica Bank has been very helpful. Otherwise, our growth has been funded internally.

What are some of the advantages to doing business here?
Our clients like doing business with Michigan-based companies. Also, locating next to a major university has provided us with valuable resources.

If you could change one thing about this region, what would it be?
I would like to attract more business to this region. The governor's tax policy is a huge win for Michigan business.
