Accounting Today Ranks McGladrey Fifth on Top 100 Firms List
McGladrey LLP, the leading U.S. provider of assurance, tax and consulting services focused on the middle market, was recently ranked as the fifth largest accounting, tax and consulting firm in the United States for the eighth consecutive year by Accounting Today.
The accounting industry trade publication's 2014 Top 100 Firms list was featured in its "Third time's the charm?" article, which says that this year marks the third year of positive overall growth for the industry. The publication highlights McGladrey's strategy to serve middle market companies, as well as its acquisitions of Wilmington, NC-based Lanier, Whaley, Craft & Co., and Houston-based Margolis Phipps & Wright in late 2013.
"Last year was an exciting one for McGladrey," said Joe Adams, McGladrey's managing partner and CEO. "We are pleased to have secured the fifth largest ranking for the eighth consecutive year, and we are even prouder that our middle market strategy is taking hold as a differentiator in the industry. McGladrey has developed a strategic plan that is driven by our unparalleled understanding of the middle market and serves as the foundation for all of our decisions. We're excited about continuing to guide our clients through their challenges and opportunities."
While things are looking "pretty good," according to the article, the accounting industry does continue to face some challenges coming out of the recent recession. Among the top is recruiting and retaining top talent. The piece goes on to spotlight McGladrey's "Personalities Wanted" recruiting campaign and other investments in recruiting, professional development and work-life programs. This external recognition is aligned with what employees tell us on our People Survey: McGladrey is focused on the right things to create a positive work experience and help them be successful.
"At McGladrey, we understand that it's our employees who drive our success," said Katie Lamkin, national human resources leader for McGladrey. "It takes dedicated, high-performing professionals to provide clients with the best, so we work hard to provide our employees with competitive benefits and the flexibility they need to serve clients well while also meeting their professional and personal objectives."
