GBH CPAs, PC announced today that the firm has been selected by INSIDE Public Accounting as one of the 10 accounting firms that received top honors as Best of the Best Under $5 Million for 2014, recognizing overall superior financial and operational performance on more than 70 IPA criteria.

The IPA Best of the Best Under $5 Million firms deliver a unique set of performance metrics achieved through maneuvering their firms towards exceptional performance. Unlike their large firm counterparts, Best of the Best Under $5 Million earned this distinction with notably fewer resources available to still deliver exceptional client service, commitment to training, unique benefits for both staff and clients, and specialized client focus.

Jeff Houston, Shareholder and CEO, stated, "We are proud of what our team has accomplished in building GBH into a highly regarded CPA firm in the country. This recognition is a testament to the entire group of professionals in our organization and the willingness of all employees and shareholders to deliver continuous excellence to our clients. We live our values and create a culture of providing exceptional client service all the time. The dedication and work ethic that we see from our employees demonstrate how well those values are guiding and rewarding us as a firm. With the merger that we completed earlier this year and our organic growth, we have doubled the size of our practice. We continue to be well positioned for double-digit annual growth to meet our clients' expanding needs."

“The IPA Best of the Best Under $5 Million have figured out early how to excel as a high- performance firm in a vast competitive marketplace,” says Michael Platt, principal of the Platt Group and publisher of the accounting trade publication, INSIDE Public Accounting. “Each firm demonstrates the right combination of vision, planning, training, and execution to deliver superior performance,” he says.

“The success of the Best of the Best Under $5 Million is really quite exceptional, and is a tribute to their leadership and staff. Their enviable performance provides a model to others to better understand and implement winning strategies to run a more successful firm,” says Kelly Platt, publisher of INSIDE Public Accounting. “We salute all Best of the Best Under $5 Million firms and are proud to bestow this honor upon them from INSIDE Public Accounting,” she concludes.
