Lynn is a wealth management advisor who works out of the Salt Lake City, UT office.

Lynn joined CAPTRUST in 2017 when Knox Capital Group partnered its wealth management practice with CAPTRUST. He has had a long and successful career in tax consulting. Lynn spent seven years with Deloitte before becoming director of tax for Ballard Medical Products, a mid-size public company that was very active with mergers and acquisitions during his tenure. After assisting Ballard through a sale of its business, he joined Ernst & Young where he became tax partner and ran the tax practice for 13 years. During that time, Lynn worked with many of Utah’s largest companies. Additionally, he has assisted many ultra-high-net-wealth clients purchase and exit businesses. Lynn is a firm believer that structuring tax-efficient transactions puts money in the hands of bright, visionary entrepreneurs who can use those funds to create great businesses, new jobs, and a stronger economy.
