Principial, National Tax Office
Originally from Long Island, Alan Gallatin has lived in Metropolitan Detroit since 2012. An attorney and CPA, he is part of the National Tax Office of Plante Moran, and is on the adjunct faculty of Walsh College.
Although not in BBYO as a teen (he was a USYer), Alan was heavily exposed to it as his sister presided over her BBG chapter! He has since been an active leader in the Jewish community having held many roles within the Jewish Federation system (including vice-chair of National Young Leadership Cabinet and severing on the boards of both the Northern New Jersey and Metropolitan Detroit federations), as well as other organizations such as Tamarack Camps, Hands On Tzedakah, and his synagogue (Adat Shalom in Farmington Hills, MI). Alan is a graduate of the Berrie Fellows, a program closely modeled after the Werner Heritage Program.
A lover of music and the theatre, Alan can regularly be found at the Detroit Symphony Orchestra and at Broadway touring performances. He is an avid sports fan, particularly of the Mets, Rangers and Duke Basketball. He enjoys golf and skiing, and hopes to find more time for both.
But what he is most passionate about are his two amazing children; Joshua, who is in his first year at Eastern Michigan University, and Rose, a high school junior whose love of BBYO (particularly her BBG chapter, of which she’s s’ganit) is infectious!
