Staff Profile: Chuck Chappell

This month we’d like to introduce you to Wicks Emmett managing partner, Chuck Chappell. Providing tax, accounting and CFO services to individuals and businesses in the health care/medical and insurance fields, Chuck has built his decades-long practice on trust and integrity.

A local guy, Chuck attended Umpqua Community College and Oregon State University after graduating from Roseburg High. Chuck returned to the area after four years of work for a national accounting firm in Eugene, and became a partner at Wicks Emmett LLP in 1991. Since then, Chuck has expanded his professional repertoire to include business valuation and consulting.

“If a client has a very technical issues, we have a resource now where we can locate the expertise,” Chuck explained. “It’s seamless for our clients. They don’t have to travel to Portland or Seattle to get the work done. They can have it done here.”

Once the busy season passes, Chuck spends his free time playing golf, cycling, participating in church activities and relaxing with his wife, Gloria, his children and grandchildren. Accounting, it seems, runs in the family: His oldest son, Jeremy Chappell, also works at Wicks Emmett LLP as an accountant.
