Here are some highlights from the newest Top 100…

It’s certainly not easy to have a job and write a book at the same time, so we want to recognize some of these accounting influencers who can also call themselves published authors! There are many on the list, so here’s just a few:

Well done to these four, and to all the published authors on the leaderboard!

Here’s to #100! Welcoming Jeff Breeden, CPA, tax consulting partner at RubinBrown, who made it onto the leaderboard this week after catapulting an impressive 110 spots. Many of us know Jeff by his social media nom de plume, @CPAJeff. He’s a busy guy on Twitter when he’s not heads-down in his role at RubinBrown, where he “finds joy in solving sticky problems.” We’re looking forward to Jeff’s ongoing rise on the leaderboard!

    The Accounting Top 100 social media leaderboard ranks accounting professionals based on their overall presence, influence, and engagement on social media platforms. Each user’s rank is determined by that user’s Kred Outreach and Influence scores in addition to a list of custom metrics, and all updated rankings are displayed in new leaderboards generated every two weeks.

    Avalara’s Accounting Top 100 leaderboard (the “Leaderboard”) is assembled using a list of accounting professional users that’s curated by manual entry as well as by Rise.Global's internal Twitter search functionality. We reserve the right to change scoring metrics used for ranking and to exclude anyone from the list, in our sole discretion. The Leaderboard is not an endorsement, recommendation or sponsorship of any of the accounting professionals on the Leaderboard, and we do not make any representation or guarantee of their ability or reliability. Assessments by different methods or based on different information may yield different results. The Leaderboard is only a starting point to gather information about accounting professionals, and you should not rely on it to decide whether to hire an accounting professional.

    The leaderboard was "soft launched" over a month ago, so you were likely included in the initial user list while everything got up and running. Newcomers are those in the Top 100 who signed up in-between leaderboard releases. Glad you made it as well!
