Richmond, VA (December 8, 2017) — Yount, Hyde and Barbour (YHB) held a celebration for its local Richmond office to celebrate 70 years of serving clients and community.
“In 1947 Ralph Yount and Louis Hyde started YHB on the back porch of Mr. Hyde’s Winchester home and we have since grown to include 8 offices across Virginia with almost 150 people and 24 partners. One of those offices was opened 12 years ago in November, that would be our home here in Richmond,” said Curtis Thompson, Principal in YHB’s Richmond office. “While not as old as the Terracotta Army that you are about to see, we take great pride in our Firm’s heritage. While much of the culture of YHB has changed since 1947, our dedication to clients remains steadfast.”
YHB welcomed over 130 clients, friends of the Firm and retired staff members to celebrate its 70th anniversary at the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts, Wednesday, December 6th, 2017. Guests received a private tour of the recently installed Terracotta Army Exhibition with a special introduction to the exhibition by the head curator, Li Jian and VMFA Director, Alex Nyerges.
The Richmond event capped of a year of client celebrations across Virginia for YHB. The first anniversary event was held at the Firm’s headquarters in Winchester, Virginia in June followed by events in the Firm’s Middleburg, Leesburg and Culpeper offices.
“Between the five locations we welcomed well over 800 guests. Our objective in these events was not so much to celebrate YHB, but to celebrate and thank our clients and friends of the Firm,” said Jeremy Shen, Marketing Director for YHB. “We were able to utilize our client’s services for everything from catering and locations to flowers and printing the invitations. At the end of the day our clients aren’t just clients to us, they are our neighbors and community partners. We’re invested in their success just as much as our own.”
