Date: July 25, 2017
National Office – BKD CPAs & Advisors has been named to INSIDE Public Accounting’s (IPA) 2017 Best of the Best Accounting Firms list. This marks the firm’s seventh consecutive year being named a Best of the Best firm and appearing on IPA’s Top 100 Firms list.
“Being included on IPA’s Best of the Best list is always an honor,” said BKD CEO Ted Dickman. “We want to thank IPA for this important recognition and everyone at BKD who made this award possible.”
IPA honors CPA firms across the country for their overall superior financial and operational performance on more than 70 IPA criteria, including metrics that measure growth, profitability, income, productivity, accountability, turnover, professional development and governance. The right combination of planning, strategy and execution distinguishes Best of the Best firms from other firms that participated in IPA’s 27th annual survey.
A key highlight of this year’s firms is their commitment to innovation.
“In addition to the challenges already faced by the profession, the coming wave of artificial intelligence, machine learning, blockchain technology and big data is advancing faster than anyone would have predicted even three years ago,” says Mike Platt, principal with IPA. “Efforts are underway on many fronts to re-engineer how the business of public accounting gets done. The coming changes will be transformational.”
