Delap Announces New Executive Leadership Team

Delap LLP of Lake Oswego, Ore., announced the formation of a new executive leadership team.

“As our firm has grown and we position ourselves for the future, we believe moving away from the traditional partnership governance model to a corporate leadership structure allows us to focus our efforts and bring the best out of each team member,” says David DeLap, former MP.

As part of this transition, DeLap hands the senior leadership role to new CEO, Alex Corrigan. Corrigan, a 14-year veteran of the firm with over 20 years of experience in public accounting, will also continue in his capacity as an assurance partner for the firm.

DeLap says of his partner Corrigan, “Alex possesses that unique combination of passion, leadership, character and humility, while fully embracing the unique culture that makes Delap special. Under his leadership, I anticipate great things.”

DeLap will continue as a partner with the firm and focus his efforts toward serving the firm’s growing client base. “Serving clients has always been my passion,” says DeLap. “I am excited for this transition as it expands my availability to provide tax, estate and succession planning to more of our clients. Helping clients achieve their goals, while also mentoring the future leaders of our firm, is very rewarding for me.”

Corrigan has named Ryan Boatsman and Earl Pierce to the roles of COO and CFO, respectively. Boatsman and Pierce will also continue in their current roles as partners in the firm’s assurance and tax practices. Completing the firm’s executive leadership team are Matt Mattecheck and Doug Brown, leaders of the firm’s tax and assurance departments.

“We are known as an organization that invests in people,” says Corrigan. “In an industry known for riding its staff to the verge of burnout, we strive for a different model where our team has the freedom to pursue each of their career and life goals in a healthy way. Our clients feel the benefits of this through experienced, happy and consistent personnel. I am excited to continue our mission of investing in the success of our clients, staff and community going forward.”
