Brown Edwards’ CEO, Jason Hartman, was recently named to the Virginia 500 — The 2021 Power List. The list highlights the commonwealth’s most influential leaders by sector.
The Virginia 500, assembled by Virginia Business magazine, lists the state’s top business leaders across 20 categories taking into consideration annual revenue, newsworthiness, community involvement, diversity, number of employees (in Virginia and worldwide) and how large a presence the organization has in the commonwealth.
I am humbled to be recognized as one of the commonwealth’s most influential leaders. My commitment and dedication to the community and the accounting profession has aided in my success over the years. I am grateful to all who have helped me along the way.
