Virginia CPA named "Super CPA" by Virginia Business magazine

The Reston, Virginia-based CPA and consulting firm of Ryan, Sharkey & Crutchfield, LLP (RSC) is pleased to announce that Edward H. Ryan, CPA, Managing Partner, has been named a "Super CPA" by Virginia Business magazine. Ryan was recognized in the contest's assurance services category.

In the contest's seventh year, Virginia Business partnered with the Virginia Institute of Certified Public Accountants (VICPA) to highlight the state's top CPAs for their important contributions to the profession and the prosperity of the Commonwealth of Virginia. Though the contest is open to thousands of extraordinary CPAs working in Virginia, only 320 were identified as "Super CPAs".

“It is truly an honor to be recognized as a “Super CPA”, and I appreciate everyone who nominated me,” says Ryan. “I am also grateful to those who have helped me get to where I am today as a professional, as well as the partners, professionals and supporting staff of our firm for their endless support.”

Virginia Business sent an official ballot to more than 7,000 Virginia CPAs asking them to identify the names of peers they consider the best at their craft. After the ballots were collected and tallied, the winners were selected in 12 categories and were highlighted in a special “Super CPAs” report in the November 2008 issue of Virginia Business.
