Withum SOTF

January 9, 2018

Yesterday Withum had its annual State of the Firm (“SOTF”) event. It is sort of an annual meeting attended by the entire firm – 1000 people – from Orlando, West Palm Beach, Bethesda, Boston, Aspen and more locally, Philadelphia, Manhattan and the five offices in New Jersey. The event was held at the NJPAC which comfortably accommodated us. The four hour program (with a strategic 15 minute break) ended with a two hour cocktail reception where we were able to meet and catch up with colleagues we don’t get to see often enough.

Bill Hagaman, our managing partner/CEO gave his report of the state of the firm which is really great. Important metrics were presented and we continued our 43 year string of consecutive revenue growth. We also added services and niches and Bill covered the growth in industry niche revenues and projected growth and expansion of the firm in every important area. The program began with our eighth annual SOTF video which included 150 people. This is a can’t miss and can be accessed if you click here. The annual strength awards recognized exceptional service in marketing, innovation, outstanding achievement, community service, client service and firm administration. While there were individual strength award winners, as far as I am concerned, everyone nominated was a winner for their exceptional activities. They are a really great group and we are all proud of them.

For the first time, a guest speaker was brought in and he was riveting. John O’Leary, author of On Fire, spoke for an hour with a moving, motivating and inspirational presentation that kept us on the edge of our seats; and gave us a way to pay it forward in order to honor those that helped us get where we are, or for the younger people, that are helping them get where they want to go.

Withum is over 1000 people strong, with half being millennials, so we are a young 43 year old firm, with second generation home grown leadership. Strategic plans are in place identifying and grooming our future leaders. We have our act together and are strongly poised well for the future.

I am excited about our future, excited about the state of the firm, and excited about all the great and really nice people that comprise Withum. There is much more to share, but I think this is a good time to conclude this blog, saving the additional information for another day.
