RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) - A Richmond investment firm has earned top honors for their growth in this down economy. Heritage Wealth Advisors in Shockoe Center has won the Charles Schwab 2009 Pacesetter Award, beating out 6,000 firms nationwide. Because of this, Schwab will give $10,000 to the Richmond Community Foundation's 2009 Safety Net Fund.

Also, three local health systems made "Working Mother" magazine's annual top 100 companies with family friendly policies. The magazine says Bon Secour Richmond Health System, HCA Virginia Heath System, and VCU Health System all have policies that enable women to succeed at home and at work.
