Southern California CPA Firm Receives Local Award Five Years in a Row

Last week, Santa Monica based Holthouse Carlin & Van Trigt LLP (HCVT) was honored as one of the “Fastest Growing Private Companies” in Los Angeles County by the Los Angeles Business Journal for the fifth year in a row. HCVT was one of only seven companies to appear on this list for four years or more.

The current rankings were developed by the Los Angeles Business Journal, focused on businesses in Southern California, and are based on average revenue growth for calendar years 2006 through 2008. Despite the general economic downturn, HCVT posted a cumulative three year growth percentage of 59.8% or an average of 19.9% per year.

The firm has also been named as one the Top 25 “Best Managed Accounting Firms” in the United Sates by Inside Public Accounting for the past four years.
