GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (Jan. 18, 2022) — DWH, a leading business consulting and financial services firm based in Grand Rapids, Michigan, today announced several key leadership appointments including the promotion of Ben Borisch to the position of Managing Partner.
Borisch joined DWH four years ago and became partner and chief operating officer in 2020. His background is in finance, operations, human resources, family office, and business start-ups. Prior to joining DWH, Borisch spent most of his career working in or with family-owned businesses. He succeeds Monica King, who has been named the CEO of Gun Lake Investments, a long-term DWH client.
“I’m extremely honored to take on this new role with DWH,” said Borisch. “We have a terrific staff that is experienced and customer-focused, delivering great service to our clients.”
As DWH continues its growth trajectory, additional leadership will be provided by newly named partners, Jeremy Cosby and Heather Gardner. Cosby has been with DWH since 2019. He has experience in technology-related roles, with a specialized focus on costing, pricing analysis, and cash flow management. Gardner has been the managing director for DWH’s Detroit office for the last two years. Prior to joining DWH, she spent more than 25 years in entrepreneurial roles with a focus on operations, finance, human resources, strategic planning, and organizational design.

Borisch, Gardner, and Cosby are committed to DWH’s belief that business advisory can and should be done differently. DWH’s philosophy focuses on recommending business and financial solutions to maximize value for owners, investors, employees, customers, suppliers, and the community. By maximizing value for all stakeholders – rather than simply protecting the interests of a select group – DWH’s solutions are more comprehensive, productive, and focused on creating successful business outcomes. These advisory services include turnaround and restructuring services, financial advisory services, succession and management transition planning, strategic planning, merger and acquisition advisory services, and tribal economic development.
DWH was founded in 2006 by Doug Wilterdink, who remains involved in the firm as an advisor and consultant. In 2018, Waséyabek Development Company (WDC), the economic development arm of the Nottawaseppi Huron Band of the Potawatomi, acquired a majority share of DWH, which established DWH as a minority-owned firm. Over the years, the firm has grown in size and service offerings. This growth, along with DWH’s commitment to internal talent development, created an opportunity for the firm to expand its leadership team on a more formal basis.
