What does BVOH mean?



When we started BVOH, our original intent wasn't to build a company. We were a small group of individuals who were 100% focused on building long-term relationships and executing with a very high level of integrity and quality for our clients and candidates. Starting out in the “Big 4” public accounting firms, when it came time to name what manifested into our company, we wanted something unique. At the time a lot of our competitors’ names sounded very similar and included the words “accounting” or “finance.” Having started out in the “Big 4," we combined the four names of the founding partners for the name BVOH.

In 2009, we started our second line of business, consulting and staffing under the same name. We did this because we wanted to offer a complete solution for our clients and candidates. We have steadily grown our team and presence in the Bay Area. Throughout the evolution of the company from 4 individuals to over 20, our mission hasn't changed.

Our Vision for BVOH

We see BVOH as the best recruiting resource for the Bay Area’s top companies in the finance and accounting discipline. Our clients and candidates see it too — for us, being the best means living our core values: Passion, High Road, Hustle and Team One—every day.

We want to exceed your expectations in every interaction—because we care and we’re passionate about what we do.

We approach our jobs every day with Passion: a burning desire to create meaningful and lasting relationships. We love what we do, and it shows.

We are known to take the High Road: putting the best interests of our candidates and clients first, every time.

While working on a search or project we Hustle: operating with speed, optimism, and an unparalleled work ethic to transcend our candidates’ and clients’ expectations.

We work together in cohesion to ensure every client and candidate receive the same outstanding experience. We say yes to fun and no to drama. We listen, support, and work as Team One to achieve extraordinary results.

While providing outstanding service to our marketplace it’s also personally important for each of the partners to make BVOH a fun and inspiring place to work:

  • A company where people love what they do and love who they do it with. A place where we can genuinely foster a supportive environment where we challenge and encourage our recruiters to be “all that they can be.”
  • Where everyone at BVOH has the opportunity to provide a wonderful life for themselves and their families.
  • To create opportunities for our people to grow and develop in their careers, although these opportunities do not need to be the SAME for everyone.
  • Where we encourage individuality and longevity, both within BVOH and in the profession. Most of all, to build a legacy.
