Forbes Lists Petrey as Top 200 CPA for 2024

LIBERTY TOWNSHIP, Ohio – Tim Petrey, CEO of HD Growth Partners and founder of White Glove Payroll, was recently listed by Forbes as one of America’s Top 200 CPAs of 2024. 

Forbes’ selection process, spanning nearly a year, is a rigorous evaluation of CPAs nationwide. Forbes recognizes CPAs on the list not just for their technical expertise, but also for their roles in innovation, thought leadership, community service and ethical standards, a news release states.

“To say I am incredibly humbled and honored would be an understatement,” Petrey said. “I couldn’t have done it without the support of my amazing teams at both HD Growth Partners and White Glove Payroll, or my clients who have entrusted me with their financial (and sometimes personal) matters. Congratulations to all other honorees as well.”

The Forbes recognition follows other recent honors for Petrey, including being named to CPA Practice Advisor’s 40 Under 40 list and Ohio’s 500 Most Influential Leaders. He also was named to the Association of Ohio Commodores.

“Tim is truly the type of leader that inspires growth and initiative in each of us every day,” said Megan Roberts, director of operations at HD Growth Partners. “He leads by example in the ways that we proactively communicate and strive to solve problems for our clients. It’s an absolute honor to work and learn alongside him.”
