Based on more than 70 management and operational metrics, the annual IPA list recognizes the top 50 managed CPA firms among every major accounting firm in the United States. Firms making the list displayed the right combination of planning, strategy and execution, as well as long-term consistency and exceptional performance.
“‘Best of the Best’ firms aren’t just successful in a financial sense – they’re firing on all cylinders,” says Michael Platt, principal of the Platt Group and publisher of the accounting trade publication, IPA. “We look at the whole firm: How do they treat their employees? Are they offering specialized services to their clients? Are they planning now for a new leadership team in the future?”
Doeren Mayhew’s chairman and managing shareholder, Mark Crawford, cites the exceptional dedication of its staff and shareholders as the reason for the firm’s ability to consistently make the list.
“Our shareholders and staff at Doeren Mayhew take great pride in being a ‘Best of the Best’ CPA firm. Each year we set out to be better than the last – helping us maintain this distinctive designation,” Crawford says. “Achieving this recognition is a testament of the firm’s focus and commitment to our clients, employees and future of the firm.”
