Alachua, Florida (PRWEB) September 07, 2011
Two CPAmerica International member firms were named INSIDE Public Accounting’s 2011 Best of the Best and three member firms received Best of the Best Honorable Mentions.
The newsletter has reported the Best of the Best firms issue for 18 years and, according to the IPA, those firms have shown exceptional performance, regardless of outside factors. In this list, size was not a deciding factor – with the largest firm to make the cut at $71.4 million in net revenue and the smallest at $7.5 million in net revenue. These firms share the same building blocks that lead to success.
Frazier & Deeter, LLC, based in Atlanta, Ga., was named Best of the Best twice in three years by the IPA. The firm provides tailored services across a wide range of tax, audit, accounting and advisory needs to achieve each client's unique financial goals.
