Dixon Hughes Goodman LLP, the Southeast’s largest accounting firm, is continuing its sponsorship of the Triad Business Index with a gift of $25,000 to the Bryan School of Business and Economics at The University of North Carolina at Greensboro.

“The DHG Triad Business Index continues to be one of the most important sources of information on the region’s economy, and it is a valuable managerial tool for both planning and assessing business opportunities,” said Bradley J. Newkirk, DHG’s Triad managing partner. “We have sponsored the index for three straight years and readership continues to grow. Dixon Hughes Goodman is happy to continue its partnership with the Bryan School’s Center for Business & Economic Research.”

The DHG Triad Business Index is developed and maintained by Dr. G. Donald Jud, a senior research fellow with the Center for Business & Economic Research at the Bryan School. More than 3,000 business leaders have subscribed to the monthly gauge of economic trends in the Piedmont Triad.

“We very excited that Dixon Hughes Goodman has agreed to renew its sponsorship of the Triad Business Index (TBI) for a third year,” said Dr. McRae C. “Mac” Banks, dean of the Bryan School. “Dixon Hughes Goodman has been a strong and valued partner of the Bryan School on many levels and we appreciate their support.

“I am especially pleased because the TBI, developed by our colleague Dr. Don Jud and the Bryan School, is an excellent example of how we bring part of our mission to life, and that is using research to engage with the business community to help them be exceptional problem solvers. Over the years, the TBI has proved to be remarkably accurate in predicting the Triad economy, which is why it is so valuable to decision makers, and why Dixon Hughes Goodman finds it so valuable to sponsor. ”
