Vertex Inc. wins 'SmartCEO' corporate culture award for 2015
“Vertex is honored to receive this award for our unique corporate philosophy and highly collaborative culture,” Jeff Westphal, Vertex president and CEO, said. “Our culture empowers employees to engage with clients in meaningful work to produce superior products and services.”
At the same event, Vertex also received a “Going Green” award for its sustainable practices. Westphal welcomed the accolade, expressing pride in the firm’s level of environmental responsibility. The company’s mission is to provide its workers with a sense of purpose that evolves organically over time.
“We have thoughtfully … designed a business and developed a company culture that optimizes our ability to do what we do,” Colleen Kirk, Vertex's director of organizational development, said. “Our company emphasizes individual and collective excellence, continual innovation and customer intimacy, while never losing sight of the importance of a meaningful and flexible work environment — and this award is further proof that our culture reflects that.”
Established in 1978, Vertex helps companies reach their strategic potential in corporate tax handling by assisting with a range of taxes. Vertex is privately held and employs over 850, with headquarters in Berwyn and offices in London, São Paulo and seven additional U.S. locations.
