Lance Barrett, CPA, CGMA, CCIFP

Lance began his accounting career graduating cum laude from Southern Oregon State College with a Bachelor of Science degree in Business/Accounting. After commencement, Lance gained five years of public accounting experience from working at a regional and then a local CPA firm. He later left public accounting to earn the title as Vice President of Finance for a major marine construction company. After a number of years Lance missed public accounting the challenges it brought and the need to help businesses grow. He returned to the public sector starting his own practice and growing rapidly. This expansion led to the merger of two other CPA firms, resulting in one of the largest local firms in Portland, Oregon.

Lances entrepreneurial style and vision eventually led him to disband the Portland firm, and head over across the Columbia River to Southwest Washington. Eventually Barrett & Company PLLC was formed in Vancouver, Washington.

Lance has expert knowledge in serving businesses and their owners in a number of industries including: Construction, Manufacturing, Real Estate and Transportation

Lance is originally from eastern Oregon and enjoys the outdoors. He likes to golf, hunt deer and elk. He also enjoys reading many novels and spending time with his family.
