Our Story


Apparatus Solutions was created by Paul Trulik in late 2009 to specifically address the financial and human resource needs of small and medium-size impact organizations.Given our team’s passion and interest in the City of Detroit and SE Michigan, it was clear that Apparatus would be specifically focused on using our talents to positively serve the social impact sector.

Also, based on the team’s collective experience in the nonprofit sector it was clear that small and medium-sized organizations struggle to find the right mix of expertise and value with their limited resources.

With four employees and four clients, Apparatus Solutions launched with an entrepreneurial spirit of continuous learning and growth, flexible engagements, and a strong focus on delivering value. Since its inception, Apparatus has added key leadership positions, designed products and processes centered on best practices, and has consistently grown year over year.


Today, the team and client list are significantly larger but the formula remains the same: We use our collective experience to deliver best practices, processes and strategic thinking that brings exceptional value to all of our clients.

Whether you need financial or talent strategies or help with bookkeeping or an employee handbook, Apparatus knows this sector and can help your organization achieve success.
