IRVINE, Calif. -Haskell & White, one of Southern California's largest independently owned accounting, auditing and tax consulting firms, has promoted two individuals in the Audit and Business Advisory Services Department in a move that will assist the firm in providing the highest level of client service. Luigi Ramirez of Santa Ana was promoted to in-charge associate, and Tracy Cuculic McLaughlin of Yorba Linda is now an audit manager.
