INSIDE Public Accounting Reveals The Nation’s Top 100 CPA Firms For 2017
August 10, 2017 | New Philadelphia, Ohio – With more than 50,000 public accounting firms throughout the United States, to be named one of the Top 100 is not an easy accomplishment, but Rea & Associates, an Ohio-based accounting and business consulting firm, continues to maintain a place on the annual ranking list published by INSIDE Public Accounting (IPA), a leading public accounting industry publication published by The Platt Group.
This year, Rea ranked 97 on IPA’s 2017 Top 100 CPA Firms list – up from 98 in 2016. Additionally, Rea earned a place on the 2017 IPA 100 Fastest-Growing Firms list, which identifies the 10 fastest-growing firms based on reported organic growth in net revenue, without the influence of mergers.
Considered to be one of the most accurate and up-to-date sets of rankings and trends, IPA’s rankings are based on the survey and analysis results provided to by more than 500 firms throughout the United States. Results are then compiled and used to gauge the overall health, challenges and opportunities of the accounting profession.
“It’s really great to earn a spot once again on INSIDE Public Accounting’s Top 100 firm list,” said Don McIntosh, CPA, Rea’s CEO. “This recognition is a testament to the hard work and dedication our team of industry experts and business professionals bring to the firm every day. Moving forward, we will continue to look for opportunities for strategic growth while expanding and enhancing the services we offer. We know that our clients depend on us to help them achieve and sustain financial success and earning a place as a Top 100 firm shows that we continue to move in the right direction.”
The professionals at Rea specialize in providing individuals, landowners and businesses, government entities and not-for-profit organizations with solutions to their accounting, tax and other business-related challenges. The firm provides expertise in accounting, audit, benefit plan design and administration, business valuation, succession planning, litigation support, profit enhancement, fraud detection and tax services.
In March, Rea was recognized by Accounting Today as at Top 100 Firm (98th) as well as one of the Top Accounting Firms in the Great Lakes Region. The firm was also recognized by Columbus Business First as a top accounting firm in Central Ohio.
