Gregory S. Hopton
Accounting and Tax Manager
In addition to being responsible for the preparation of financial information and financial statements for the Foundation’s annual audit and its annual 990-PF tax return, Greg Hopton explains his job “as keeping track of the business side of Mott.” Before joining the Foundation in 2002, he worked as a financial consultant, helping set up accounting systems, procedures and policies for two subsidiaries of the General Motors Corporation. A graduate of Central Michigan University in Mount Pleasant, where he earned a bachelor’s in Business Administration, he obtained his certified public accountant license in 1990 while working for Plante & Moran in Southfield, Michigan. He also worked for several years as controller and vice president of marketing for the Macomb Schools & Government Credit Union. A former athlete in multiple sports who still enjoys a friendly contest, Hopton keeps busy outside of work by coaching youth sports teams and attending his children’s extracurricular activities. To maintain balance in his numerically oriented life, he also writes fiction.
