(Charlotte, N.C.) – GreerWalker LLP was recognized today as an Accounting & Consulting Industry Cup winner for the firm’s exemplary philanthropy and support of United Way of Central Carolinas’ work across the Charlotte region.

Accounting & Consulting Industry Cup awards recognize Charlotte-area firms that see United Way campaign successes, like increases in total contributions, overall employee participation and/or number of employees contributing at a leadership giving level, among other achievements.

Over the past year, GreerWalker’s giving campaign provided opportunities for employees to support United Way in helping to create stronger neighborhoods, improve the systems that serve children and families and provide basic needs support across the community. Among the firm’s recent campaign highlights, employee participation increased to over 90 percent and unrestricted giving increased by 71 percent.

For GreerWalker’s accomplishments, this year the firm received the Accounting & Consulting Industry Cup Small Firm of the Year and Rising Star awards. GreerWalker previously received the Small Firm Rising Star award in 2018.

“I am very proud of the continued strong engagement and campaign results for the accounting and consulting sector – in fact, even with a challenged environment we are projecting a stronger campaign for the sector than last year,” said Bill Currens, Duke Energy senior vice president, financial planning and analysis, and who helps organize the annual competition.

In lieu of this year’s awards reception planned for May 14, winners were surprised with awards via mail and virtually recognized for their accomplishments.

“The dedication of these companies to the community is amazing, especially during the current period of uncertainty when many in the community need our support more than ever,” Currens said. “I offer a toast to each participating firm and especially our competition winners for this year.”
