LOS ANGELES, CA (May 13, 2022) – GHJ, a leading accounting and advisory firm, has won a Marketing Achievement Award from the Association for Accounting Marketing (AAM) for the third year in a row. This year, GHJ was recognized for its 2021 Brand Refresh. The Marketing Achievement Awards are given to firms finding the best, most innovative ways to connect with their clients and prospects.
“It is an honor to be recognized by the Association for Accounting Marketing for the innovative work our Marketing team put into this initiative,” said GHJ Marketing and Business Development Director Jennifer Sullivan. “This brand refresh reflects who we are as a firm and our passion for helping clients and our people create a better future.”
In early 2021, GHJ launched a new logo and brand icons to reflect the Firm’s modern and progressive culture and position in the marketplace. The new brand assets were announced in conjunction with the opening of GHJ’s new headquarters in downtown Los Angeles.
“Over the past few years, we expanded by opening a Northern California office with employees in nearly 30 states serving clients worldwide,” said GHJ Chief Strategy Officer Mari-Anne Kehler. “GHJ’s brand promise and brand assets have been enhanced to align with the inspiring work done within the firm.”
As part of the brand refresh, GHJ redesigned all marketing collateral to reflect the new image, including social media assets, stationery, proposals, brochures, business cards and other branded materials. The Firm also updated its website URL to reflect the updated name and refreshed branding. Elements of GHJ’s new branding can also be found throughout GHJ’s new office space.
“I am incredibly proud for GHJ to be recognized once again by AAM,” said GHJ Managing Partner Tom Barry. “Our Marketing Team is incredibly talented, and this recognition reflects that. 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.”
