GBQ Partners LLC is proud to announce that the firm has been named an INSIDE Public Accounting Best of the Best Firm for 2016.
INSIDE Public Accounting’s (IPA’s) annual Best of the Best recognition honors 50 CPA firms across the country for their overall superior financial and operational performance on more than 70 IPA criteria. The right combination of planning, strategy and execution distinguish Best of the Best firms from among more than 540 firms that participated in IPA’s 26th Annual Survey and Analysis of Firms.
IPA considers a wide variety of metrics to evaluate who is a Best of the Best firm, including metrics that measure growth, profitability, income, productivity, accountability, turnover, professional development and governance.
“Best of the Best firms are financially successful, but that’s only part of what makes them exceptional,” says Michael Platt, principal of the Platt Group and publisher of the accounting trade publication, INSIDE Public Accounting. “Best of the Best firms are built on a stronger foundation of openness, trust and respect for their employees. They are not content to stand still. They plan ahead for the future of the firm and they anticipate the needs of their clients.”
Kelly Platt, publisher of INSIDE Public Accounting, says firm leaders who are looking to improve can look to the results produced by the Best of the Best. “Best of the Best firms show that discipline, planning and a systematic approach to improvement can result in measurable progress toward their goals. In a rapidly changing business environment, Best of the Best firms thrive.”
This is GBQ’s 8th appearance on the list: 2000, 2001, 2004, 2010, 2011 – 2013 and 2016.
