Focus. Clarity. Commitment.

Phil Holthouse, Jim Carlin, and John Van Trigt came together to create a firm that was different for their clients and employees — a firm based on technical excellence where the focus is on needs of the client. Our engagement teams are business-focused, and our business model is built on partner access and advice. We use our in-depth institutional knowledge and comprehensive technical skills and deliver value and solutions that help our clients achieve their goals. Clarifying and resolving complex issues is what we do. How we do it is what sets us apart from other CPA firms. What we deliver-value, results, solutions.

Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion

The events of the past several years have caused us to pause and reflect on our firm’s commitment to equity, diversity, and inclusion. Our workplace is diverse, and we believe our environment is inclusive. We are committed to providing a work environment that embraces and respects each individual regardless of race, gender, religion, age, sexual orientation, or disability. Is this enough? No. It is not.

HCVT’s Diversity, Equity, & Inclusion initiative develops goals and specific action plans that support social and racial justice internally and externally. Our current focus areas are recruiting and training, including firm-wide programs on implicit bias, external and internal communications, community outreach and impact, and developing every team member. We are a work in progress and committed to making strides. Vicken Haleblian, our CEO & managing partner, has signed the CEO Action for Diversity & Inclusion Pledge. He joins over 1,200 CEOs across the nation that have pledged their support, collective voices, and actions to promote a more diverse and inclusive workplace where access to opportunities is available to all. As a firm and as members of our communities, we are listening. We are learning. We are committed to being part of the way forward.
