Education: Linfield College, B.A., Accounting
Ryan has a passion to serve business owners, working collaboratively to build stronger, healthier, and more profitable businesses. As a second generation CPA, Ryan recognizes the value of a proactive advisor to closely held businesses. As Delap’s COO, he plays an active leadership role in developing and executing the firm’s strategic plan. That firsthand implementation experience creates a unique perspective to Ryan’s ability to deliver results to clients.
He primarily focuses on serving clients with business advisory and financial statement assurance needs, including audits, reviews, and compilations. Bringing over 15 years of public accounting experience to every client relationship, Ryan has established a reputation for excellence within the homebuilding, construction, real estate, and manufacturing/distribution 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.
Born and raised in the Northwest, Ryan attended Linfield College and immediately began his career with Delap upon graduating. Ryan’s leadership with the home builder industry combined with his personal belief that every individual has worth ultimately led him to become a board member and treasurer for Home Builders Foundation – HomeAid Portland. Outside of work, Ryan enjoys spending time with his wife and three young sons, who are highly active in youth sports. Now that his college football and track careers are behind him, he volunteers as a youth coach in Sherwood as a way to give back to his community and stay close to the game.
