Earl’s passion for people has been a differentiator throughout his career. “At Delap, we invest heavily in our team,” he says. “We do this so they experience the rewards of realizing their potential. This allows them to grow and become strong advisors, well-equipped to serve and guide clients.”
Earl enjoys his role as a trusted business advisor to his clients. His ability to effectively articulate a clear plan of action provides his clients with immeasurable value and is also very rewarding. He welcomes the opportunity to help clients step outside of old habits and thoughts and employ new ideas and strategies to expand their business in ways they ordinarily wouldn’t do without his direction.

Specializing in the taxation of middle-market pass-through entities, he works closely with his team to ensure tax returns are completed in a timely fashion and strategic year-end planning occurs. As his clients’ trusted business advisor, Earl works with business owners throughout the year to ensure that proper planning is in place related to business financing, business real estate, succession planning, exit strategies, and other important transactions. Earl regularly consults on mergers and acquisitions.
