Albuquerque, N.M.-based REDW LLC (FY18 net revenue of $30.7 million) announces that three team members have been admitted as principals: Brian Foltyn, based in Phoenix, and Stephen Montoya and James Ortiz in REDW’s Albuquerque office.

Foltyn leads valuation and advisory services in REDW’s Phoenix office. He offers services in business valuation, strategic planning, dispute advisory and mergers and acquisitions. Prior to joining REDW LLC in 2017, Foltyn served in Plante & Moran’s forensic and valuation services group.

Montoya has dedicated his career to performing audit and advisory services for governmental entities, including tribes and their tribally owned businesses, such as their gaming operations. He has also worked with several prominent state and local governmental entities in New Mexico, including the New Mexico Department of Transportation, New Mexico Finance Authority, Santa Fe County and the city of Albuquerque.

Ortiz heads the state and local tax (SALT) practice, and has helped clients with economic credits and incentives, multistate sales and use tax, and multistate income tax, among others. He has nearly 15 years of SALT experience in government, Fortune 500 companies and public accounting.

“This promotion recognizes both their achievements and their deep commitment to our clients, our profession and the high standards of excellence for which our firm is recognized,” says Steve Cogan, REDW’s managing principal.

Cogan added that their promotion to REDW’s leadership team also highlights the firm’s commitment to talent development and career opportunities, execution of the strategic succession plan, as well as aligning niche practice areas with the firm’s long-term growth strategy. “As our industry continues to experience consolidation and rapid change, our team is welcoming those challenges as new opportunities to innovate, lead and create greater value for our clients and team members.”
