Continuing the legacy that inspired their tagline, “Your partner for success since 1922,” the team at Hutchinson and Bloodgood proudly announces the celebration of their 100th year with a trifecta of events that position them for a bright and successful future.

Along with the growing physical footprint of the firm comes an evolved website and updated brand identity, including their simplified company name.

The revered California-based accounting firm—now known simply as H&B—kicked off their centennial year with a celebration that brought its 37 partners and over 150 team members together in San Diego. While highlighting their years focused on service to their clients, they also raised a glass to new beginnings, announcing the addition of a fifth location in Santa Barbara. Building on a relationship that had been nurtured over many years, H&B welcomed the team from Damitz, Brooks, Nightingale, Turner & Morrisset as part of their own.

“It’s an exciting time for us here at H&B,” said Managing Partner, Richard Preciado. “With the addition of our Santa Barbara location, we’ve had the privilege to grow our team and leverage the talent and resources of DBNTM. As we look ahead to the next 100 years, we will continue to balance our deep-rooted commitment to leadership, trustworthiness, and adaptability with the innovative and ever-evolving trends within our industry, operating as an expanded and improved H&B.”

Along with the growing physical footprint of the firm comes an evolved website and updated brand identity, including their simplified company name. On January 17, was launched, symbolizing a new era for the business and a commitment to keeping the firm’s services and offerings in line with the growing needs of their clients. The new website allows clients—whose industries range from agribusiness, finance, and hospitality and leisure to professional services, manufacturing and distribution, construction and nonprofits—to enjoy an informative and innovative digital experience that complements the long-lasting, personal relationships they value from the H&B team.

Looking to the future, the company has also embraced a new, rebranded identity, including a fresh logo that nods to the company’s dynamic past and modern, innovative operations.

“With our centennial year upon us,” said Kalena Rebollar, Chief Operating Officer and Partner, “it only seemed fitting to take a look at where we’ve been… and where we are going. This brand evolution brings a modern twist to our rich legacy and represents the opportunities that lie ahead, built on a past that defines our values, integrity and commitment to our clients.”

Hutchinson in 1922, H&B has operated under the philosophy “To Serve the Client.” From its humble beginnings in Glendale, California serving local businesses, to a valued firm with international reach, one thing has remained unchanged: the team at H&B will continue to evolve and innovate, to put their clients first, and to find ways to impact their community for the next 100 years and beyond.
