Irvine, Calif.– For the second consecutive year, Haskell & White, one of the largest independent public accounting firms in Southern California, has been named to the Orange County Business Journal’s Civic 50 list, which honors the county’s most community-minded companies.

 

The Civic 50 honors the businesses with employees who utilize their time, skills and resources to raise the quality of life in the communities they serve. Honorees are chosen by an annual survey, developed by True Impact, which is independently administered and scored on four facets of community engagement: investment, integration, institutionalization and impact.

 

“Community service is part of our foundation at Haskell & White,” said Wayne Pinnell, managing partner of Haskell & White. “We encourage and enable all of our staff to volunteer, fundraise, serve on boards and do whatever they can to support the causes they feel passionate about.”

 

Haskell & White maintains a ceaseless dedication to the community through volunteer work, strategic fundraising and tireless board service. The firm touches every corner of the community, including education and leadership programs, the arts, health, safety, sports, business and many other worthy causes.

 

“It is incredible to see so many companies creating programs supporting our community, and we are honored to be among that group,” said Rick Smetanka, audit partner-in-charge of Haskell & White. “Our goal as leaders in our firm is to be a role model internally of what volunteer service looks like, as well as a role model externally for how businesses can positively impact communities.”

 

Earlier this year, the Firm was honored by California Society of Certified Public Accountants for Public Service. Haskell & White was formally recognized as a Civic 50 Awardee during a special luncheon Wednesday, Oct. 16 at Hotel Irvine.
