Cummings, McClorey, Davis & Acho, P.L.C. was delighted to celebrate our 50th Anniversary in 2015. This monumental anniversary would not have been possible without the founder of the Firm Owen J. Cummings. Mr. Cummings had a vision of developing a Firm whose strength rests in the service we provide our clients. We thank Mr. Cummings for the dedication and effort he has put into growing CMDA over the past 50 years.
Thank you to clients and friends for attending CMDA’s 50th Anniversary Client Appreciation Event on Thursday, June 25, 2015 at the VisTaTech Center at Schoolcraft College. We enjoyed catching up with clients, reminiscing with former employees, and showing our appreciation to each and every client who has put their trust in us over the past 50 years.
