INSIDE Public Accounting’s annual Best of the Best recognition honors 50 firms for their overall stellar performance on more than 50 criteria. This year, more than 430 firms participated in the 22nd annual IPA Annual Survey and Analysis of Firms.
Best of the Best firms demonstrate long-term consistency and exceptional performance, regardless of outside factors. Many have been here before. Of the 50 firms named to the list this year, 29 were among the Best of the Best last year, and 22 were on the list in 2010. In any economy – up or down – clues for what to do, where to focus and how to practice can be found in the Best of the Best.
The IPA 2012 Best of the Best firms stand out as well-managed and well-executed examples of how to succeed. Best of the Best firms come in all sizes and are geographically dispersed. The largest firm to make the cut is $401.8 million and the smallest, at $5.3 million. Despite the economy, these firms turned in solid results.
“Best of the Best firms represent the top firms in the nation. Each firm demonstrates the right combination of vision, planning and execution to deliver superior performance,” says Michael Platt, principal of the Platt Group and publisher of the accounting trade publication, INSIDE Public Accounting. “Firms that earn this designation represent the best of what the accounting profession has to offer,” Platt says.
“We are honored to be recognized by INSIDE Public Accounting as a Best of the Best firm, said Dennis Pellecchia, Chairman, President & CEO, Braver PC. “We attribute our performance to the dedication of our incredibly talented team of professionals and our commitment to quality throughout every phase of the client engagement.”
“The success of these firms is a tribute to their leadership and staff. Their performance defies economic trends by capturing the long-term goals that are needed in order to sustain growth and client service through both prosperous times and down times,” says Kelly Platt, publisher of INSIDE Public Accounting. “We salute all of these firms and recognize their overall management strategies as models that the profession can be quite proud of,” Platt concludes.
In November 2012 IPA is hosting the second annual PRIME Symposium, which brings together the IPA Best of the Best firm leaders to discuss management practices that make them stand out.
“In working with these firms for many years, I’ve seen for myself what makes them tick,” says Kelly Platt. “We launched the symposium so these leaders and others could share their knowledge, best practices and more, with their peers directly – by working with small groups of colleagues in an intimate setting. Attendees will be able to share their experiences, ask questions and brainstorm solutions with some of the best minds in the business,” she concludes.
