Phoenix-based nonprofit accounting firm Sechler CPA PC has been chosen “Best for the World” for creating the most positive social and environmental impact. Sechler CPA PC is one of 67 companies worldwide recognized for this award by the nonprofit B Lab. B Lab releases the annual B Corp Best for the World List to honor the Certified B Corporations that earn an overall score in the top 10 percent based on a company’s impact on its workers, community and the environment. “I’m absolutely thrilled with this recognition,” said Carolyn Sechler, CPA, founder and CEO. “We’re marking our one-year anniversary this month as a Certified B Corporation. This is validation that we are walking our talk. We are firmly committed to being a company that is socially conscious and backs that up in every way we can – buying local, living green, and supporting our clients by being a valued resource and cross-pollinating the abundant creativity, talent and expertise that exists within our community.”
Founded in 1985, Sechler CPA PC serves more than 400 nonprofits located in the U.S. and abroad. An early adaptor and believer in the power of technology, Sechler’s team is dispersed in three states and Canada and works from home.
“Through technology, we can leverage and localize our expertise and connections, be they local, national or global, for the benefit of our clients and our community,” she said. “Every member of our team works with care and purpose to ensure the services we need in our community are available.”
“A company’s revenue only tells half the story. Today’s most successful businesses must also create a positive social and environmental impact,” said Jay Coen Gilbert, co-founder of B Lab. “These companies not only compete to be the best in the world, but the best for the world.”
We are also very excited to have Sechler CPA PC as a sustaining member of Local First Arizona and as our very own CPA! Congratulations Carolyn, we are so proud that you are showing the world what Arizona can do for the world and the communities we serve!
