Sherman Oaks accounting firm Bessolo Haworth has appointed Sasha Baluka as a principal.

Baluka is a certified public accountant who previously worked for Tarzana-based B&G Accounting and Consulting Services. She will manage client accounts and provide accounting, audit and tax advisory services.

“We have worked with Sasha in numerous engagements and know her to be exceptionally focused on providing excellent client service,” said Managing Partner Larry Haworth. “Sasha’s expertise working with manufacturing, retail and distribution clients will also allow us to expand our services to existing clients.”

At the Business Journal’s Trusted Advisors Awards in August, Baluka won the Client Service Excellence Award. The Business Journal also has recognized her as a “Women in Business” honoree.
