Connect with Ryan

RYAN W. BOATSMAN, CPA

Ryan Boatsman brings over a decade of public accounting experience to every client relationship. Born and raised in the northwest, Ryan attended college at Linfield and immediately began his career with Delap upon graduating. Following the path of his father, Ryan knew he wanted to pursue a career in public accounting early in life. As a second generation accountant, Ryan recognizes the value of a proactive accounting advisor to closely held businesses. Ryan has a passion to serve business owners and working collaboratively to build stronger, healthier and more profitable businesses.

Ryan spent the first several years of his professional training rotating within the tax and audit teams to help build a well-rounded public accounting foundation. Currently, Ryan’s primary focus is serving clients with financial statement assurance needs including audits, reviews, and compilations. Over the years Ryan has established a reputation of excellence within the home builder, real estate, construction, distribution, and manufacturing industries. He also has unique experiences with ESOPs and complex entity structures; in particular consolidations of multiple entities under common control. Ryan’s ability to see the complete financial landscape of the businesses he serves allows him to deliver innovative insights beyond the scope of assurance requirements.

Outside of work Ryan enjoys spending time with his wife and two young sons. Now that Ryan’s college football and track careers are behind him, he volunteers as a football coach in Sherwood as a way to give back to his community and stay close to the game. Ryan’s favorite way to absorb the natural beauty of the northwest is from the seat of a snowmobile.
