Accounting & Finance Director

Deb LaPress

Deb wears many hats, and all of them fashionable. From running office operations to leading and coordinating financial and HR functions for Cookson, she never misses a detail or an opportunity to make everyone – both clients and staff – feel special.


With 25 years of accounting and management experience, Deb is the lynchpin that keeps the office running. She has experience in a wide array of businesses, which means she understands the processes and procedures our clients face, from the newest startup to the most established of corporations.  She’s creative, efficient and tenacious, as evidenced by her successful work with the NH Tech Alliance, ProCorp, StoneMakers Inc. and Devin Properties.

Education: Bachelor of Science degree in business administration from Western New England College


Friends, family and being fabulous. She’s an active volunteer for several community groups, including the USTA Winter Junior Tennis Team and is involved with many local happenings with her family in her hometown of Bedford, NH. Always-on and quick with a joke or to lend helpful advice, she can find a way to tackle even the most daunting challenge to take care of business. She’s direct, sharp as a tack and her shoe collection is the envy of the office.
