San Francisco-based Andersen Tax (FY16 net revenue of $220.2 million) welcomed Lance Lamprecht as office managing director of the Seattle office and Susan Swartz as regional managing director of the West region.

“One of the attributes of a great organization is orderly succession of leadership positions, and we are fortunate to have outstanding, committed individuals that do a fantastic job of representing our managing directors and our firm. Both Lance and Susan are great leaders and the Seattle office and the West region will experience continued growth under their stewardship,” says country MP, Dan DePaoli.

Lamprecht has nearly 30 years of experience in advising clients on tax matters. His main practice areas are state and local tax planning, compliance and research. His experience includes designing optimal business and operating structures to minimize a company’s state and local tax exposure and identifying opportunities to minimize state taxes relating to acquisitions, divestitures and other reorganizations. Lamprecht’s new role will involve managing growth in the Pacific Northwest as well as continuing to work with clients and staff on a daily basis.

Swartz provides a broad range of tax planning and compliance services to high-net-worth individuals, family groups and closely held businesses with sophisticated business, personal and investment objectives. Her primary practice areas include partnerships, S corporations, limited liability companies and special allocations and passive-activity issues.

“Susan was formerly the office managing director of the Seattle office, and that experience will help provide broader perspective as she steps into this new regional role,” says Mark Vorsatz, CEO and global chairman. “Additionally, Lance exemplifies the qualities and values of our firm, most significantly through his work with his peers and team. I am optimistic about the next chapter of the West Coast under Susan and Lance’s leadership.”
