Philadelphia Flyers Name HBK Their ‘Official Accounting Firm’

Christopher M. Allegretti

Canfield, Ohio-based HBK CPAs & Consultants, formerly known as Hill Barth & King (FY17 net revenue of $80 million), has entered a sponsorship agreement with the Philadelphia Flyers National Hockey League franchise through which HBK was named the Flyers’ “Official Accounting Firm.” The partnership is effective immediately.

“We are excited to announce our new partnership with this great team,” says HBK CEO and MP Christopher M. Allegretti. “The association with such a prestigious sports organization with such an illustrious history represents a great opportunity for any organization.”

Flyers fans will hear HBK radio ads during Flyers’ game broadcasts, and see HBK “virtual signage” in nine television broadcasts during the hockey season. HBK will be the presenting sponsor for a premium item giveaway at an upcoming Flyers’ home game. HBK also will use the Flyers marks and logo and the designation “Official Accounting Firm of the Philadelphia Flyers” in its marketing.

The Flyers partnership is HBK’s second major league sports sponsorship. They have served as the Official Accounting Firm of the Pittsburgh Penguins since October 2016.
