February's Member Spotlight
We are thrilled to introduce you to YPCR Member, Ben Lanyon, B.Sc., CPA, CA
Ben Lanyon, a Vancouver Island original, was born in the Comox Valley and grew up in Black Creek, BC. After moving to Victoria and earning his B. Sc. In Biochemistry, he and his wife Kirstin moved to Campbell River where he began working on his CA qualifications. They have lived in Campbell River for nine years and have two children named Joshua and Evaye. While working full time as a CA student and spending time on his studies, Ben and Kirstin also bought a tutoring business, Sunrise Learning Centre. This business venture was ultimately a great success and Ben and Kirstin sold the business in 2014 in preparation for Ben's partnership with the accounting firm Roset Lanyon.
As a partner and Chartered Accountant at Roset Lanyon, Ben is a corporate and personal tax advisor and preparer, as well as a small business consultant. Having owned his own business, he understands the needs, challenges, and wants of a small business in this community and therefore is able to help businesses become more successful. His growing firm is accepting new clients, and he offers a no charge consultation to see what planning opportunities exist. He would be delighted to sit down with you and see if Roset Lanyon can help you and your business.
In his free time Ben volunteers as treasurer for the Campbell River Business Improvement Area (BIA) and for the Campbell River Marine Rescue Society. And of course…a ‘director for life’ of YPCR. When he is not working or in meetings, Ben is often hitting the gym, wrestling with the kids, brewing something like blackberry wine, collecting things, or spending time in his garden. He also makes excellent eggs benny!
You can contact Ben at 250.286.3234 or email at firstname.lastname@example.org. He looks forward to hearing from you!
