BKD, LLP has been named to INSIDE Public Accounting’s (IPA) 2016 Best of the Best Accounting Firms list. This marks the firm’s sixth consecutive year being named a Best of the Best firm and appearing on either IPA’s Top 25 or Top 100 Firms lists.
“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 among more than 540 firms that participated in IPA’s 26th annual survey.
“Best of the Best firms are financially successful, but that’s only part of what makes them exceptional,” said Michael Platt, principal of The Platt Group and publisher of IPA. “Best of the Best firms are built on a strong foundation that considers the needs of staff, owners and clients as the three key constituencies of any successful business. They are not content to stand still.
They plan ahead for the future of the firm and they anticipate the needs of their clients.”
