Our Story


My name is Ryan LaPierre. I am a Certified Management Accountant (CMA). Below is my story on how Trillium got started.

My Professional Career

I began my professional career in public accounting, focused on audit and tax for non-profits, individual tax, and contracted accounting services. I then transitioned into the broader business sector working for A.T. LOCKE, a management accounting firm, where I learned to illuminate financial information for business owners. This was an important period of my career because it introduced me to the part of accounting and finance that is my driving passion today! Through hard work, dedication, guidance, and mentoring, I was able to develop my skills and gain knowledge and experience enough to advance my career in other directions. Since then, I have worked as a Corporate Controller for Crossroads Treatment Centers, a regional healthcare company, then as CFO of MINILEIT, Inc, a tier two international automotive manufacturing company, both based in Greenville, SC. Most recently, I held the Director of Finance position at Kalmbach Feeds, Inc, in Northwest Ohio, before deciding to open Trillium Accounting, a management accounting firm, where I can provide business leaders financial guidance to navigate the challenges of managing their company.

A Little Bit More About Me

I currently live on a small farm in northwest Ohio with my wife and four children. I enjoy sports, traveling, and spending time with my family. I love any chance to be outdoors, enjoying God’s creation, whether it is farming, hunting, nature hikes, camping, or just star gazing. I chose Trillium, the Ohio State flower, because it not only tells a little bit about me, but it also is a perfect representation of the three services of Trillium Accounting. Bookkeeping, Controller, and the CFO all come together to form a powerful team that can illuminate the numbers into actionable items for your business. Let me help you!
