We’re the Right Firm

Hughes Pittman & Gupton, LLP is a unique CPA firm that brings national firm quality while providing the hands-on personal, partner-led service that you expect and deserve. 

We serve our clients with a dedication to client service, including 12 partners.  Our team is very experienced.  Our team has a blend of local and national firm backgrounds.

The significant difference between HPG and other national and local firms is that we focus on the owners and executives of our client companies.  It comes naturally from our roots of serving owner-managers of businesses since 1983; we celebrated our 25th anniversary in 2008.  It is the relationship that matters and truly understanding your business, not just the audit or tax service.

Our client companies are household names to locally owned and managed companies.  We bring Wall Street to Main Street through our local delivery of comprehensive services and our affiliation with CPAmerica that gives us access to 210 offices in the U.S. and 448 offices worldwide.

Additionally, our people and our firm are involved in leadership roles in many community organizations.  Our involvement in these organizations is to strengthen our understanding of the industries we serve and to develop relationships that benefit our clients and the community .  We believe that relationships are the keys to client satisfaction and successful outcomes for our clients and HPG.

In August 2010, HPG became the first certified public accounting firm to achieve Green Plus Certification from the Institute for Sustainable Development.  The Green Plus program, educates businesses throughout the United States on best practices in the areas of triple bottom line sustainability: people, planet, and performance.  HPG has launched multiple initiatives to integrate sustainability into its culture and business practices and encourages our employees to be conscious of the environment and our community.  We are proud to be recognized as a leader in sustainability within the community.


Throughout our 30 year history, HPG has demonstrated a commitment to quality.  We have built a collaborative approach to resolving issues that ensures you will have the resources to resolve complex accounting and tax issues quickly and efficiently.  Our directors of auditing services and tax services oversee a quality review system that assures technical excellence.  But of course, our people are the most significant factor in sustaining quality – we have a strategy of hiring and retaining the best to serve the best.

We are not the only ones who recognize HPG as the best.  Following are just a few of our achievements in 2010:

  • Named as a 2010 Best Accounting Firm to Work For by Accounting Today
  • Recipient of the 2010 Pinnacle Integrity Business Award from the Greater Raleigh Chamber of Commerce
  • The first CPA firm to achieve Green Plus Certification from the Institute for Sustainable Development
