Crowe honored among nation's top accounting firms
Crowe Group LLP, a top 10 U.S. public accounting and consulting firm and the parent company of Crowe Chizek and Company LLC, has been recognized as an industry leader by three national accounting trade publications.
Nationally, Accounting Today ranks Crowe second in both audit and assurance, as well as management advisory services. This ranking is among national firms that report more than $100 million in revenue, excluding the Big 4 firms.
In Accounting Today’s listing of the Top 100 firms by region, Crowe ranked number one in revenue among the 19 in the Central Midwest region, which includes firms in Illinois, Indiana, Michigan, Ohio and Wisconsin.
Practical Accountant lists Crowe number one in its ranking of the 15 leading firms in the North Central region. That ranking is based on fiscal year 2006 revenue, excluding the Big 4 firms.
Industry publication Accounting Technology ranked Crowe fifth in its list of the top 100 value-added resellers (VAR), firms that sell mid-level accounting software packages.
“We continue to experience strong, consistent growth and are proud to be among or at the very top of firms listed in many of these industry rankings,” said Crowe CEO Chuck Allen. "Crowe is dedicated to being a great place to work, providing outstanding service by building value with values and expanding our client base in markets across the country."
These rankings complement previous rankings announced by Public Accounting Report (PAR). Crowe ranks as the eighth largest public accounting and consulting firm according to PAR’s Top 100 firms list, released in late 2006.
PAR also ranks Crowe as one of the Top 10 Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) accounting and consulting firms based on U.S. SEC net revenue. Crowe is ranked seventh in the nation in this category. With more than 150 SEC registered clients, Crowe is also one of eight U.S. firms inspected annually by the Public Company Accounting Oversight Board (PCAOB).
Voice of the Editor
Which isn’t completely true. I mean, occasionally I drop by when I manage to sneak out of the nonstop frat party over at Going Concern, but I’m mostly a wallflower over there. I’m happy to say that I’ve been given express permission (or explicit orders, if you like) to wander over here to AccountingWEB more often.
Why is that, you might ask? My job is to replace the irreplaceable Gail Perry as Editor-in-Chief. What does that mean? I don’t really know! I think it’ll be fun getting a feel for things, throwing in my own thoughts here and there, and listening to the discussions you’re having about the accounting profession.
