Duane Landon (MBA, MPA, CPA, EA) facilitates accounting and tax services to several nonprofits in the greater Seattle area. Never one to slouch, Duane also acts as the Director of Finance & Administration at the Henry Art Gallery!
Duane previously served as business manager at the Central District Forum for Arts & Ideas, interim finance manager at NPower, and Director of Finance at 501 Commons. Before that, he spent many years in middle-management for respected companies such as REI. His formal education includes a degree in accounting, a Master's in Business, and a Master's in Public Administration. Duane attained his CPA in July 2012.
Before working with 501 Commons, he volunteered with then Executive Service Corps. Duane also teaches the financial section of Seattle Works’ Bridge program and recently served on the Arts Commission in his home town, Snoqualmie. Other volunteerism includes mentoring/tutoring youth in after-school programs. After a long day of intense mental work, Duane likes nothing better than repainting a room, tiling a floor, building a fence, or any other physically demanding project.
Fun fact: Probably the only motorcycle riding, power-tool loving, tattoo-covered dad who also sewed baby quilts for both his kids.
