Michael Deluca began his career in Atlanta, working for two of the “Big Four” accounting firms, Ernst & Young and Deloitte. In 2011, he moved to Southwest Florida to work for HBK CPAs & Consultants, where he is now principal and partner-in-­charge of the firm’s Naples and Fort Myers offices.

“As national director of HBK Healthcare Solutions and a certified public accountant, I work exten­sively with closely held corpo­rations, partnerships, small- to middle-market businesses, large private corporations and individu­als, primarily within the health care industry,” he says. “But I also have a philanthropist’s heart and am driven to help create a multi-gen­eration, multi-industry economy in Southwest Florida.”

Deluca’s community involve­ment includes volunteer work with Friends of Foster Children Forever, Southwest Florida Children’s Char­ities, Naples Children & Education Foundation’s Friends of the Foun­dation and more.
