LaPorte CPAs & Business Advisors is proud to announce that Eric E. Bosch, CPA, has assumed the role of President and CEO effective December 1, 2021.
Bosch, who joined LaPorte in 1990 has served in a variety of leadership roles throughout the firm. His previous firm leadership roles include Executive Committee member, Healthcare Industry Group Co-Leader, Chairman of the firm’s Compensation Committee, and former leader of the Financial Services Industry Group.
Bosch’s commitment to his professional life is equaled by his desire to make a positive impact in his community. He is a founding member of the charter school JCFA (formerly known as the Jefferson Chamber Foundation Academy) and over the years served as a board member, treasurer and chairman of the Finance Committee. Other civic organizations where Eric is active include the Health and Education Alliance of Louisiana, Jefferson Dollars for Scholars, Jefferson Toastmasters, and the University of New Orleans Accounting Advisory Council. Eric is a former faculty member for the Delgado Community College 10,000 Small Business Program, which is funded by Goldman Sachs, and serves as an adjunct professor for the University of New Orleans in its Healthcare Management program.
“I am truly honored to take on this leadership role and am grateful for the trust in me that my peers have demonstrated,” said Bosch. “As our industry continues to change and grow due to new technologies and challenges in the marketplace, I look forward to building on the strong foundation we have in place here at LaPorte.”
Past President and CEO Ted Mason will remain with the firm with a focus on supporting industry group strategy and client development, as well as professional development through LaPorte University and the firm’s Professional Growth Plan program.
