We are proud to announce that Horsey, Buckner & Heffler (HBH), our affiliate minority-controlled accounting and advisory firm, was featured on the cover of the January issue of Accounting Today Magazine. The article, Practice Profile: Built for inclusion, highlights the uniqueness of HBH and its affiliation with Heffler, Radetich & Saitta.
The concept for Horsey, Buckner & Heffler, a Philadelphia CPA firm formed this last summer, is “simple but historic,” according to CEO and chairman Michael Horsey, who established the firm with managing partner Kia Buckner and the backing of regional firm Heffler, Radetich & Saitta.
Philadelphia-based Heffler, Radetich & Saitta has a minority stake in HBH, making HBH an affiliate of the 76-year-old full-service firm, in a model that’s unique and, Horsey and Buckner hope, also momentous.
“The result of that relationship is to provide a diversity solution,” explained Horsey, who has more than 39 years of experience in the profession, most recently as Philadelphia managing partner at Mitchell & Titus. “For the clients we will be serving, we will be providing a diversity solution as a result of [Heffler’s] historic involvement. We understand the need to increase opportunities for minority professionals, and to create that opportunity as well. There’s an opportunity in the marketplace for a firm like ours that has a relationship [with a larger firm] … and that’s great for us, there’s been great feedback. I think we will be a trendsetter for these types of collaborative relationships. It’s a win-win for everybody.”
