VPTax Expands Startup Tax Services, Announces New Leadership Appointments


VPTax, Inc., a leading provider of tax services for startups, is pleased to introduce expanded tax services tailored specifically for startup founders, named "Founders' Tax Services". This initiative coincides with exciting leadership changes, including the appointment of Lynn Ames as Chief Executive Officer, Nathan Burt as Executive Vice President, Stephen Day as Chief Financial & Operations Officer, and David Heap as Chief Revenue Officer.

Founders' Tax Services leverages VPTax's deep understanding of the startup community to assist founders in preparing for success. VPTax helps founders build, protect, and transition wealth, considering all areas of the tax landscape for startups and their founders, including business taxes, exit planning, and legacy financial wealth planning.

"We are fortunate to welcome Lynn and Nate to VPTax, bringing their extensive experience and network," said Todd Suchevits, outgoing President and CEO. "The VPTax community of startup companies, including their founders and executive teams, now have an even broader range of tax support available through VPTax." Todd will continue to serve clients with the same unparalleled tax knowledge and pragmatic advisory skills he has provided for the last 17 years at VPTax.

Lynn Ames has held senior positions in both public accounting and corporations. Notably, Lynn led the tax practice at Ernst & Young in the Salt Lake City office and served as Tax Director at Ballard Medical Products. Most recently, Lynn was a principal at Knox Capital Group, which merged with CAPTRUST in 2018, an independent investment advisory firm which oversees more than $800 billion in assets.
