The partners of Habif, Arogeti & Wynne, LLP (HA&W) announced today that Scott Hutchinson has been admitted to the Firm as an audit partner. Hutchinson’s selection is a key component to HA&W’s growth strategy, which will be fully implemented over the next few years. He is regarded as a client-focused business advisor and an adept business developer.

Hutchinson’s addition to the HA&W team fits perfectly with the sustained growth and service expansion the Firm has seen, particularly under the leadership of Richard Kopelman who took the helm at HA&W on Jan. 1, 2013. In under a year, Kopelman’s vision and strategy had already yielded significant and measurable results. The Firm exceeded its 2013 organic growth projections by 75 percent.

Kopelman acknowledged it was the HA&W team who drove those results. “From the beginning of my tenure, the goal has been to continuously communicate internally where the Firm is going,” Kopelman said. “I’ve stressed that how we get there is up to each of the 312 HA&W employees. Our business model and culture attract bright, seasoned people who are client-obsessed, thrive in an entrepreneurial environment and strive to be successful locally, nationally and globally.”

The Firm also experienced growth through combination in 2013: HA&W recognized an immediate 4 percent bump in revenue when it combined with JRZ, LLC, a firm specializing in tax services to the real estate industry.

The market took notice. HA&W received numerous business and industry-specific accolades in 2013. Highlights from the year’s awards include: Inside Public Accounting, a national accounting publication, named HA&W a “Best of the Best” firm in the nation, which is a distinction bestowed to only 50 firms in the U.S; and The Fulton County Daily Report, a publication servicing the legal community, named HA&W as the Best Accounting firm in Atlanta for the third year in a row.

“HA&W is that rare firm that offers a dynamic environment where talented people can start, build and expand their careers,” Kopelman concluded. “This is a place where you can have an idea, explore it and bring it to life.”
