GBQ Named a Top Accounting Firm

Columbus, OH, September 6, 2012: GBQ Partners LLC is proud to announce that it has been named an INSIDE Public Accounting Top 200 Accounting Firm in 2012.

The Platt Group, the publishers of INSIDE Public Accounting (IPA), has released its third annual ranking of the nation’s largest accounting firms, the IPA 200. IPA Top 200, also known as “Beyond the IPA Top 100”, picks up where the IPA 100 issue left off and identifies those notable firms ranking No. 101 to No. 200. The report on the IPA 100 and IPA 200 is one of the most comprehensive of its kind and is the most current snapshot of the financial and operational health of the largest firms in the nation. It reflects the “state of the union” of the accounting profession.

The IPA 200 firms represent a large portion of the second-tier firms that have a larger regional presence. “IPA 200 (Nos. 101- 200) firms reported organic growth rates of 2.4% on average an indication that we’re moving away from the sluggish / flat growth of 2009 and 2010,” says Michael Platt, publisher of IPA, “This group represents the up and coming firms to watch.”
