“Words cannot express how delighted I am that Carli has joined the partner group and leadership team here at RLH,” said Ryan Hastings, CPA, CVA and Co-Managing Partner at RLH. “I have had the sincere pleasure of working with Carli since the beginning of her career, and to watch her grow into the leader she is today. Carli’s dedication to RLH and her commitment to helping our clients is inspiring. She constantly challenges current thinking, and with a keen eye to the future, I have no doubt that Carli’s leadership will be transformational for our firm.”
Carli became a member of the RLH team as an intern in the summer of 2004. She gained experience working within the Firm’s Assurance and Tax Planning & Compliance groups before transitioning to the Firm’s Business Consulting and Business Accounting & Finance practices, of which she will now be the Team Leader. As part of these practice groups, Carli helps her clients with outsourced CFO and Controller services, valuations of closely held businesses, business exit planning, and general business advisory services. Her early experience in the audit and tax realms gave her a broad background that has been valuable when focusing on the specialty areas she currently serves. In recent years, Carli also led the firm’s marketing efforts, including the firm’s rebranding in 2015.
Co-Managing partner Karl Lehman, CPA, PFS says, “I am excited for the positive synergies we will experience from the addition of Carli to our partner team. She encourages all of us to think differently about the services we provide to our clients - how our advisory services can help our clients prosper and grow. I look forward to working with Carli in her expanded leadership position at RLH.”
