NATIONAL OFFICE – BKD CPAs & Advisors has been named to INSIDE Public Accounting’s (IPA) 2019 Best of the Best Accounting Firms list. This marks the firm’s ninth consecutive year of being named a Best of the Best firm and appearing on IPA’s Top 100 Firms list.
The selections were based on responses from more than 550 firms that participated in this year’s IPA Survey and Analysis of Firms. CPA firms across the country are chosen using a proprietary formula to calculate performance on more than 70 IPA criteria, including metrics that measure growth, income, productivity, tools of governance, staff turnover, time management and other areas that speak to the firm’s framework.
“Most firms don’t aspire to be average. Best of the Best firms are the peer group to which progressive firms aspire,” said Michael Platt, managing principal of The Platt Group and publisher of IPA. “In presenting the results of the IPA Best of the Best, we are proud to continue the tradition of expanding the imagination and the understanding of what is possible to achieve in running a public accounting firm.”
A key highlight of this year’s firms is their focus on organic growth, acquisitions, lower turnover rates and a focus on improving diversity in leadership roles. Actions that may have contributed to BKD’s ranking include an initiative to promote inclusivity, a new focus on innovation and two acquisitions of firms in Austin, Texas and Salt Lake City, Utah. The firm ranks 13 out of 100.
