Adam Ritchie, Intern
Adam is 19 years old, and grew up in Rochester, Michigan. He is a junior at Michigan State University in the Undergraduate Accounting Program. “I have aspirations to complete my undergraduate, gain acceptance into the Masters of Accounting program at Michigan State for a fifth year of studies, and eventually sit for the CPA exam and complete it successfully. I consider myself to be very focused, motivated, and driven in all aspects of my life and I look forward to what is in store for me in my future”, says Adam.
Interests: I have interests in the accounting field and what accounting practices or actions different businesses take for financial or managerial reasons. I also have interests in seeing how different areas/aspects of companies work amongst each other internally to create the most fluid and successful business overall. I have played hockey my entire life and still continue to do so and am a big MSU sports fan.
Accomplishments & Favorite Part of the Job: Dean’s List at MSU all four semesters. My favorite part of working at CGS is that I can be hands on with every single aspect of the company.
Why I Joined CGS: I joined CGS to be a part of a growing business and see what it takes to accomplish it. I also felt that I would be able to get a bigger role as an intern at CGS than I would elsewhere. So far there is nothing but evidence that supports that claim.
Personal Quote: “There are no secrets to success. It is the result of preparation, hard work, and learning from failure.”

Also, he has experience with differential equations and multi-variable calculus.
Interests: Hockey, lacrosse, computer programming, management, and calculus.
Accomplishments & Favorite Part of the Job: Dean’s List at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute for two semesters, The best part of the job, for me, is how much I learn about the business world, and it’s functions, everyday.
Why I Joined CGS: I joined CGS because it was a great opportunity and the people are fun to work with. Also, it has allowed me to gain extremely valuable experience in the business world.
