Morrison, Brown, Argiz & Farra, LLP (MBAF), has been named to INSIDE Public Accounting’s Best of the Best Firms list for 2009, making it the 14th year that the firm earns the honor of being one of the nation’s best managed accounting firms.
“The dedication and perseverance of MBAF’s staff of certified public accountants and consultants led us to achieve our goal of being named a Best of the Best firm this year,” said Tony Argiz, managing partner at MBAF. “It is their determination to consistently surpass client expectations that has driven MBAF for the past 40 years and positions the firm for future success.”
INSIDE Public Accounting’s Best of the Best honors 25 firms annually for intelligent management and superior operational performance in fiscal and management metrics based on over 50 criteria. This is the 15th year INSIDE Public Accounting (IPA) has named the best-managed accounting firms.
“Best of the Best firms represent the top 25 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 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 2009 Best of the Best firms range in size from $3 million to $168 million; represent all regions of the country; some firms are heavily focused on audits, some on tax, and several derive up to 40% of their revenues from non-traditional services.
