DHG Announces 2018 Community IMPACT Award Winners

Charlotte, N.C, Oct. 18, 2018 – Dixon Hughes Goodman (DHG) is pleased to announce the winners of its annual DHG Community IMPACT Awards, which recognize the outstanding community service efforts of an employee and a DHG geography.

Andrew Swint has spent countless hours giving back to his community and was recognized as the employee who logged the most hours of service from July 2017-July 2018. Similarly, DHG’s New York City office was recognized for collectively logging the most hours of service from July 2017-July 2018. DHG honored these recipients in September at an awards ceremony during the firm’s annual partner meeting in Orlando, FL. Each recipient received a monetary donation for the nonprofit organization of their choice to help support efforts in the coming year.

“The DHG Community IMPACT Awards celebration is a special time when we come together to acknowledge contributions that improve our communities,” says DHG Foundation President, Pat Shuler. “Most importantly, it is a time to celebrate the amazing people in our firm who work together to make our communities a better place.”

Andrew Swint spends much of his time volunteering as a refugee mentor for a local nonprofit in Charlotte, NC. He says, “I appreciate what our firm is doing to support our local communities through events such as the Habitat for Humanity Build, the St. Jude’s walk/run and the United Way annual giving campaign. These events not only bring people together, but help strengthen relationships and serve as a friendly reminder that we have the ability to truly make an impact in our communities.”

Since DHG’s New York City office opened in 2014, its local professionals have used community events to build a collaborative internal team that is focused on creating meaningful relationships throughout the area. “We are very passionate about giving back and serving the community,” said Cheryl Levesque, partner in the New York City office. “As the office has grown and matured over the last several years, our commitment to giving back has grown ten-fold.”

The New York City office was thrilled to learn its employees logged the most volunteer hours per capita among all DHG offices. From holding several events with the United Way to building strong relationships with New Alternatives For Children, the American Heart Association, City Harvest and RBC Race for Kids, the New York City office has grown from helping dozens to hundreds of people and their families.

“The passion for community service as exemplified by Andrew and the team members in our New York City office goes well beyond the work they do for our clients,” says Shuler. “It truly shows how much they care about supporting the well-being of fellow employees, the broader community and our profession in ways that align with our mission, values and strategy.”
