NATIONAL OFFICE – BKD CPAs & Advisors has been named to INSIDE Public Accounting’s (IPA) 2018 Best of the Best Accounting Firms list. This marks the firm’s eighth consecutive year being named a Best of the Best firm and appearing on IPA’s Top 100 Firms list.
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, accountability, turnover, professional development and governance. The right mix of planning, strategy and execution distinguishes Best of the Best firms from other firms that participated in IPA’s 28th annual survey.
A key highlight of this year’s firms is their focus on nontraditional services.
“Firms of all sizes are focusing on developing new products and services to better meet the increasingly complex needs of their clients,” says Mike Platt, principal with IPA. “CPA firms continue their expansion into services that are not traditionally associated with accounting firms—wealth management, cybersecurity, client marketing assistance, employee placement, media consulting, corporate social responsibility advice, business process outsourcing and many others.”
