Derek E. Solomon, CPA, MA

Senior Manager

Derek provides a special perspective

to consulting and tax services at Corrigan Krause, with a versatile range of experience from the accounting and consulting, real estate, and finance industries.

His education of an economics degree from Allegheny College, followed by the accounting sequence at John Carroll University and a master’s degree in economics from Cleveland State, allow him a unique ability to analyze a client’s business, acquisition, or planning issues from multiple angles. His clients value that he takes the time to teach and explain concepts and details, while also focusing on the big-picture understanding of the financial and economic analysis and conclusions.

Derek spends time outside of work coaching and volunteering at his kids’ schools, as well as with Breakthrough Schools, which offers tuition-free educations to students throughout Greater Cleveland. He enjoys playing soccer and spending time outside with his family. He, his wife, and their kids have a special interest in the many State and National Parks and historic sites in our area- and some quite a distance away!
