Alexandria, November 15, 2017

Halt, Buzas & Powell has ranked #8 on the list of corporate philanthropists and #42 on the list of top 50 accounting firms in the Washington Business Journal’s 2017 Book of Lists.

Published yearly, the Washington Business Journal Book of Lists is the premier reference tool for surrounding counties in the greater Washington metropolitan area, providing information on leading companies in multiple fields.

“We are so grateful to have earned positions on not just one, but two of these lists,” said HBP partner Steve Halt.

The list of accounting firms is ranked by the current number of professional accounting staff. Halt, Buzas & Powell prides itself on its core values of trust, integrity and commitment, crediting these values for the firm’s inclusion on this year’s list. Over the years, HBP continues to grow its client database and diverse staff.

The Washington Business Journal’s list of corporate philanthropists is ranked by Metro-area volunteer hours. The annual Corporate Philanthropy Awards honor the region’s companies and nonprofits who have made a difference in their communities through financial and volunteer philanthropic work. Halt, Buzas & Powell ranked 8th in the small business group, accepting this honor at the 2017 award ceremony yesterday.

“At HBP, we value giving back to the community that allows our company to thrive,” said managing partner Andy Powell. “We hope to continue our philanthropic work in the Washington Metro area for years to come.”
