CPA firm wins national industry award

Habif, Arogeti & Wynne, LLP, one of the country's top-100 CPA firms, has been honored by The Association for Accounting Marketing (AAM) for outstanding achievement in the multi-media category for its internal video newscast, "Beyond the Numbers."

For this award, HA&W was recognized in the "Over $15 Million in Revenues" division specifically for its sophisticated development and use of its internal video newscast, which in the guise of a monthly television news program welcomes new hires to the firm, recognizes employee achievements, and reports developments affecting the company. The video newscast is also used for recruiting and training purposes.

"To have Habif, Arogeti & Wynne's marketing efforts recognized by an industry-leading organization such as The Association for Accounting Marketing further validates the business value our communications bring, both internally and externally," said Dan Simms, managing partner, HA&W. "We are proud to be in the company of other innovative accounting firms that, too, are changing the face of how our industry markets and communicates with its constituents."

AAM distributed 40 Marketing Achievement Awards to 30 different firms in recognition of their outstanding achievements in the areas of accounting marketing and communications. A panel of judges, including professionals in advertising, consulting, professional services and marketing, judged nearly 250 entries in 19 different categories. Accounting firms from all over the United States and Canada competed in two divisions — under $15 million in revenues and over $15 million in revenues. Categories included Web site design, collateral/identity materials, niche business development and print advertising for CPA firms.

This was the 14th year the annual awards were presented. Winners were announced at the organization's 19th Annual Conference, in San Diego, on June 5, 2008. You can see a complete list of the winners, by category.
