Irvine-based accounting firm Haskell & White has hired a new managing partner to lead and help grow its San Diego office. Helen Adams will help the firm branch out to serve new clients in the science and technology sectors, namely those in the life science, clean-technology, alternative energy, and real estate industries.
Haskell & White was established in Newport Beach in 1988 and has since become one of Orange County’s largest independently owned accounting firms, providing the region’s public and private middle-market companies with accounting, auditing and tax services. It also provides assistance in more specific areas, like preparations for mergers, acquisitions and initial public offerings, SEC filings and IT audits. The firm opened its San Diego office in 2008.
Prior to joining Haskell & White’s San Diego team, Adams served as an audit partner at Deloitte, where she involved in everything from IPOs to litigation and corporate strategy consulting.
“Helen’s broad skill set and industry expertise will continue the significant growth of Haskell & White as we expand our presence in Southern California,” said Wayne Pinnell, managing partner at Haskell & White. “She infuses our team with experience serving the industries that are at the pulse of the San Diego economy, specifically in the areas of science and technology.”
“I am proud to take on these new responsibilities with the Haskell & White organization,” Adams said. “I believe the firm is well positioned to expand its middle-market practice in the San Diego region.”
