Ryan Bakke, CPA
Ryan is a Shareholder with Brady, Martz & Associates in Minot, North Dakota. He has been with the firm since 2008. Prior to that he worked for Deloitte in Minneapolis, MN. He is the President of the Minot Chapter and a member of the AICPA.
What I like about the Society: I like that the Society advocates for CPAs in North Dakota and is working on growing the popularity of being a CPA. With the age demographics of CPAs in North Dakota, it will be imperative to replace these CPAs with a new generation of talent.
What would surprise people about me: I am honestly scared of clowns – no joke.
Personal: Ryan and his wife Sarah have two kids (Harper – 3 and Georgia -1 ). His father is a CPA and previous shareholder in North Dakota – guess it runs in my blood!
Hobbies and Pastimes: Golf, UND hockey games, Green Bay Packer games, spending time at my family lake cabin, traveling to events, spending time with my kids, and binge watching Hulu or Netflix.
