Managing Partner, Berman Hopkins Wright & LaHam CPAs

Phil Hayes joined Berman Hopkins in 2000, became a partner in 2006, and, as part of the firm’s succession plan, was appointed managing partner in 2010.

 With the CPA industry undergoing massive consolidation – creating larger and fiercer competitors – Berman Hopkins has solidified its reputation for providing a proactive experience in delivering cutting edge compliance and consulting services to clients.  Under Hayes’ leadership they have leveraged expertise including export compliance services, federal government contractor compliance, international tax, benefit plan audits and strategic partnerships.  Hayes has led the charge to establish “knowledge based” professionals to proactively serve and add “real” value to their clients now and in the future.

 “The most effective and positive change in any organization happens as those in charge give up responsibility to the qualified people we have hired allowing us to focus our energies on the big picture; our success is a direct result of an empowered team of professionals.”
