About Bonnie Stewart, IBS Carleton President

Bonnie Stewart, president and owner at Integrity Business Services of Carleton, has accounting experience and knowledge that comes from ‘both sides of the desk’.

Bonnie was born and raised in Monroe, Michigan. Working at HR Block to put herself through college, she graduated from Spring Arbor University having majored in accounting and business administration. During her college years, she went to work at a CPA firm in Toledo where she spent six years preparing accounting documents and tax returns. In the early 90′s she made a career move to the private sector of accounting, where she assumed the role of corporate controller.  With over 25 years experience from ‘both sides of the corporate desk’  she brings understanding and insight to her clients. She has  accounting and tax knowledge in retail, industrial gases, equipment, transportation and logistics.

With the opportunity to work for a global automotive supplier appeared, Bonnie took it. After four years at the Visteon Corporation, however, she lost her job along with 1,200 other employees.

It was out of this Integrity Business Services of Carleton was born. Unemployed and with bleak job prospects in the current economy, Bonnie decided to re-enter public accounting to re-find the enjoyment she felt early in her career. She opened an office in Carleton, Michigan where her business currently resides.

Bonnie lives in Carleton, married, and with 17 grandchildren. She has a heart for non-profit organizations servicing women and children.  She serves on the Board of Directors for New Beginnings Mercy House of Ida, is the founder and President of Driven Women, and a member of the Carleton Rotary Club.
