James Bartolomei is the Principal-in-Charge of the Mid-Atlantic region of HBK. Jim joined HBK in 2013 through a merger of his predecessor firm, Bartolomei Pucciarelli, LLC (BP). Jim was the founding and managing partner of BP since its inception in 1986. Today Jim divides his time between managing our Mid-Atlantic region and serving clients. Jim has spent his career helping small to medium-sized businesses grow and prosper by providing proactive accounting, tax and consulting services to these types of companies. Being an entrepreneur himself, Jim is ever mindful of the challenges facing the owners and management teams of small to medium enterprises. As such, he brings a unique perspective to the services that he and the HBK team provide to our clients. Jim's industry experience includes real estate development and management, manufacturing and wholesaling, construction contractors, information technology, professional service firms, and medical devices and services. In addition to client service, Jim is actively involved with several internal committees working toward aligning the firm’s services, procedures, technology, marketing and client services with our core values.
