IRVINE, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- January 9, 2007 -- Haskell & White LLP, one of Southern California's largest independently owned accounting, auditing and tax consulting firms, recently announced the promotion of four team members to senior- and management-level positions.

Senior managers Pat Ross and Joyce Salter have been elevated to the position of Principal in the firm's Audit and Business Advisory Services Department. In this role, Ross and Salter assume heightened authority and responsibility for all day-to-day operations within their department. They also will have a larger voice in the overall strategic direction of the firm as members of Haskell & White's Executive Group.

With more than 13 years of experience in public accounting with companies in Orange County, Ross, a graduate of UCLA, has worked at Haskell & White since 1998 and was most recently promoted to Senior Manager in 2005. He is knowledgeable in the SOX 404 area and is known for seeking opportunities that challenge and develop his technical skills.

Salter, a California State University, Fullerton graduate, joined the firm in 1999 and was promoted to Senior Manager in 2006. Known for her superb organizational and communication skills, she has made many insightful contributions to the company’s training programs.

"Pat and Joyce have demonstrated superb leadership skills time and time again by facilitating the quick and accurate delivery of auditing services to our clients," said Wayne Pinnell, managing partner of Haskell & White. "Their promotions to Principal recognize their significant contributions to the team, and to the firm's tremendous growth over the last several years."
