Ryan has been with JMH for nearly 20 years and believes the relationships he forms to be the most rewarding aspect of being a partner with JMH. He enjoys meeting with clients face-to-face and helping with HR matters, succession planning matters and obviously tax planning. He considers himself to be a trusted business advisor for his clients.
His time is spent primarily working with owner-managed businesses, as well as clients who have multiple offices and large staff levels. His designation as a Chartered Professional Accountant prepares Ryan for more than just tax calculations. Getting to know his clients, staff and training students on an individual level allows Ryan to help them reach their goals while keeping them from getting caught standing in time.
Outside of the office, Ryan is kept busy with his two children and their various activities. He has also assisted with various coaching duties for his son’s sports over the years. Ryan has been involved with the Community Foundation for over 6 years as the Treasurer of the Board and served in a similar fashion with the Chamber of Commerce beforehand.
One of the more common questions that come up in our office is “How much can I gift to my kids without triggering taxes?” Keep in mind that there are very different rules for “gifting” when it comes to US taxes, and I won’t touch on that in this article.
