LOS ANGELES, CA (March 8, 2022) – GHJ, a leading accounting and advisory firm, continues to expand its reach. Recently, the firm moved up from #18 to #17 on the Los Angeles Business Journal’s list of top accounting firms. GHJ also made its first appearance on the top accounting firms lists from the San Francisco Business Times and Silicon Valley Business Journal.
This was the first year that GHJ was listed in SFBT and SVBJ’s Top Accounting Firm lists. This comes after the firm brought San Jose-based Orlando, Mitts, Moore and Company into GHJ, extending GHJ’s presence into Northern California.
In addition, the firm recently rebranded its financial recruiting arm Creative Financial Staffing of Los Angeles to GHJ Search and Staffing as part of an emphasis to serve clients under a shared set of core values.
“Our growing recognition can be directly attributed to GHJ’s dedication to our employees and clients,” said GHJ Managing Partner Tom Barry. “We continue to expand our service offerings and encourage our employees to thrive, even during uncertain times.”
GHJ’s inclusion on these lists is a result of the firm’s ongoing commitment to retain the best, most diverse talent by investing in its people and technology. The firm has seen tremendous growth and expansion over the past year, increasing its headcount and expanding its reach with accountants now located across the U.S.
“As we continue to grow and adapt, GHJ will continue finding new ways to better serve our clients and employees to allow them to #BeMore,” Barry said. “This means encouraging our team to achieve their goals and be ready for whatever comes next.”
GHJ continues to emphasize its core values of Bright Minds, Brave Hearts and Bold Actions. The firm encourages its employees and clients to work creatively, collaboratively and with integrity. GHJ aims to embrace change and stay one step ahead. These principles led the firm to develop a remote workforce before the COVID-19 pandemic began, introduce an industry-leading Diversity, Equity, Inclusion and Accessibility program and continue to support its workforce through this time of rapid change.
