RLH is excited to announce the appointment of C. Ryan Hastings, CPA, CVA to Co-Managing Partner. Ryan will be joining Karl Lehman, CPA, PFS in the Managing Partner role that he has held since 2007. “Ryan has dedicated over 17 years to RLH, 10 of those serving as a Partner. I have no doubt that he will flourish in this new chapter of his career at RLH and I look forward to sharing this new role with him,” says Karl Lehman, now Co-Managing Partner at RLH.


“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 Lehman will not be retiring immediately, the firm is being proactive with its planning to ensure a smooth, seamless transition for the firm’s team and clients when that time does arrive. Hastings will be transitioning other administrative firm duties to ensure that his current clients will not be impacted by this change.
