Being an active contributor to the Las Vegas community is very important to Jeff Ortwein of Deloitte & Touche LLP. As a Vegas native and a part of Deloitte’s Las Vegas office for over 25 years, Jeff has seen the consistent support that United Way provides to the Valley.
His parents, Dennis and Betty, moved to Las Vegas in the mid-1950s to begin their careers with the Clark County School District and are still active members of the community. They instilled the importance of education, community and giving back.
Jeff graduated from Clark High School and the University of Nevada at Reno, where he earned a Bachelor of Science degree in accounting. After graduating he started his career with Deloitte in Las Vegas as a CPA and currently is Deloitte’s National Gaming Leader.
Jeff and his wife Sherri, along with their two sons, Christopher (22) and Austin (19), have a strong commitment to the community.
“I enjoyed watching our boys grow up and observing their numerous sporting events,” said Jeff. He also enjoys traveling, playing tennis and golf.
A dedicated employee, Jeff began his career with Deloitte in 1985 providing client’s access to Deloitte’s extensive gaming industry resources.
Jeff has been a United Way Leadership contributor for almost 20 years, as he understands the far-reaching impact United Way has in southern Nevada as well as across the country. “I also encourage more people to contribute to this very worthwhile organization,” said Jeff.
Jeff is honored to be a current YMCA of Southern Nevada Board Treasurer and Vice Chairman. He also serves on the UNLV Lee Business School Executive Advisory Board. Over the years Jeff has been involved in many other charitable organizations including Big Brothers Big Sisters of Nevada, Rotary International and the Las Vegas Founders Club.
“Participating alongside with the most passionate and committed board members provided me with a very humbling outlook on the needs that Las Vegas residents face on a daily basis,” said Jeff.
With the 7th largest United Way campaign in the United States, last year Deloitte’s national United Way campaign raised $21.9 million with the most Tocqueville Society members for the 12th consecutive year at 900 Tocqueville members giving $10,000 or more a year.
