Troy, MI, United States, 2008/12/08 - Doeren Mayhew, Troy-based public accounting and management consulting firm, was named by Inside Public Accounting (IPA) as one of the five “Best of the Best” CPA firms in the Great Lakes Region.
Doeren Mayhew is the only Michigan-based firm to achieve this honor.
IPA’s Best of the Best recognition honors 25 firms annually for their wise management and superior operational performance in fiscal and management metrics based on 50 criteria. This is the 14th year IPA has named the best accounting firms. 250 of the best firms in the U.S. participated in this year’s IPA Annual Survey and Analysis of Firms. Each of the firms is eligible for the IPA Best of Best honor. Doeren Mayhew is one of only three firms nationally to receive the honor 14 consecutive years.
Mark Crawford, managing director of Doeren Mayhew, said, “This honor is really a reflection of a very talented and dedicated staff, and the loyalty of hundreds of Michigan’s best businesses – many of whom have been clients of the firm for 40 years or more.”
Best of the Best firms represent the top accounting firms in the nation who each demonstrate the right combination of vision, planning, and execution to deliver superior performance,” says Michael Platt, principal of the Platt Consulting Group and publisher of INSIDE Public Accounting. “Firms who earn this designation are tops in their field, and represent the best of what the accounting profession has to offer,” Platt says.
“The success of these firms stand in stark contrast to many of the negative stories of financial services companies we’ve all read about over the last few months,” says Platt. “We salute all of these firms and recognize their overall management strategies as models that the profession can be quite proud of,” Platt says.
