Profile

Ellis Orlan is a Principal at Fuller Landau, and co-leads our Business Enterprise Solutions Team (BEST), which provides traditional accounting and outsourced CFO services to small and mid-sized businesses and their owners. Clients appreciate Ellis’ detail-oriented, proactive, and timely approach to service, and his unfailing ability to meet revolving year-end and tax-related deadlines.

With over 35 years in public accounting, Ellis has a wealth of experience in providing audit and assurance services, as well as strategic business advisory and tax services across a diverse client base, including food and beverage, distribution, real estate, health care, entertainment, and professional service companies.

Ellis co-chair’s Fuller Landau’s Food & Beverage Committee, and is a member of the firm’s International Business Committee. He regularly mentors a number of firm staff, ensuring that they are continually challenged and progressing within their careers.

Through the firm, Ellis is an active member of Food & Beverage Ontario and the Canadian Franchise Association. He sits on both the Board and Executive of the Reena Foundation. He has also served as a contributing author for both Futurpreneur Canada and Franchise Canada magazine.

In his spare time, Ellis enjoys hockey, travelling, listening to timeless music, and making people laugh. He is a foodie and has a fond interest in Volvo cars. In case you think he’s just a boring accountant, be sure to ask Ellis about his past accomplishments as a weightlifter in the 1977 Ontario Junior Olympics!

Part of the thrill of doing what I do, day in and day out, is providing the best possible service to my clients. I take pride in knowing that I'm viewed as their trusted advisor.
