The Accounting MOVE Project Recognizes the Firm for 9th time.

"Today, 35% of our firm’s partners and principals are women and we are excited to continue building an environment where all employees at all levels have the opportunity to thrive both personally and professionally." Seth McDaniel, CEO and National Managing Partner

Frazier & Deeter (FD), a Top 40 accounting and advisory firm, was named a Best Firm for Equity Leadership and a Best Firm for Women by the Accounting MOVE Project. FD is the only firm based in the Southeast to receive this honor nine times.

The Accounting MOVE Project measures and supports the advancement of women in accounting and consulting firms. The MOVE report outlines tactics that women, advocates for women, and firm leaders can take to ensure that women CPAs can achieve their aspirations for their careers and drive firm growth in the process.

“Frazier & Deeter has a long history of investing in our team by offering training, mentoring, and workplace flexibility. Today, 35% of our firm’s partners and principals are women and we are excited to continue building an environment where all employees at all levels have the opportunity to thrive both personally and professionally,” noted Seth McDaniel, CEO and National Managing Partner.

“Our firm’s brand promise, Investing in Relationships to Make a Difference, helps us create a sustainable culture focused on improvement and supporting our people, clients and community,” said Kandace Freeman, DEI Program Manager. “To build on this foundation, we continue to focus on Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI) initiatives that educate and create equitable opportunities for our amazing team.”

“Now more than ever women need a third-party stamp of approval like the MOVE Project lists and the Accounting and Financial Women’s Alliance to find firms where they can grow and thrive. Traditional career paths are changing so quickly that firms can hardly keep up. The 2022 Move Project shows fresh avenues of advancement,” said Cindy Stanley, Executive Director of the Accounting and Financial Women’s Alliance.
