Orange County, Calif.-based CPA Firm Named a “Best Firm For Women;” Leadership Cements Influential Status in Southern California

 

Irvine, Calif. – Haskell & White LLP, one of Southern California’s largest independently owned accounting, auditing and tax consulting firms, has been named one of Accounting Today’s “Best Firms For Women.”

 

Based on data analyzed through Accounting Today’s “Best Firms To Work For” program, the award highlights firms that have women representing at least 25 percent of staff and have female survey response rates of higher than 50 percent. Haskell & White earned the No. 8 spot on the national list, the only California firm in the top 10. About half of the firm’s employee base and 30 percent of firm’s leadership are women.

 

“Valuing people is one of our operating values written by our founders and followed today,” said Wayne Pinnell, managing partner of Haskell & White. “We are very proud to have a culture where our employees feel empowered to provide excellent client service and contribute greatly to the firm’s overall success.”

 

“As a female leader, I am delighted to see our firm recognized for its inclusivity. This award confirms what all the employees already know to be true about Haskell & White’s culture and values,” said Diane Wittenberg, audit partner. “Our firm is one of the best because of our extraordinary employees, both female and male, who are committed to providing first-class accounting services and giving back to our communities.”

 

In addition to this national recognition, the firm received two regional awards for individuals.

Earlier this month, Helen Adams, San Diego managing partner, was named to the “San Diego 500: The Book of Influential Business Leaders” by the San Diego Business Journal, and last month Pinnell was named to the “OC 500: Directory of Influence” by the Orange County Business Journal.
