“I very much look forward to working with Karl in this new capacity. I have the utmost respect and admiration for Karl, and he has been an invaluable mentor to me throughout my career. I am especially excited about leading our amazing group of caring, talented, and dedicated professionals. We have some of the best and brightest in the industry, and with our clients’ success as our ultimate goal, we have built the team to deliver. Our future has never looked brighter!”
This announcement is the culmination of several years of internal succession planning for the firm. With the baby boomer generation aging, most industries will be significantly impacted by senior members of management retiring over the coming years. The accounting profession is no different. RLH has been anticipating this change both internally and externally and has assisted a significant number of our clients with this type of transition planning, which has become one of the firm’s fastest growing business consulting services.
While Karl will not be retiring immediately, our proactive planning will ensure a smooth, seamless transition for our team and clients when that time does arrive. Ryan will be transitioning some other administrative firm duties to ensure that his current clients will not be impacted by this change.
