[Stockton, CA] The newsletter of the accounting profession, INSIDE Public Accounting (IPA), has announced that a Stockton CPA firm, Bowman & Company, LLP, has received national recognition as one of 50 Best of the Best Accounting Firms in the United States. This is the fourth consecutive year Bowman has achieved this distinction. Bowman & Company was also named one of 2018’s Fastest-Growing Firms and one of the largest 300 firms.
“Bowman & Company is honored to be listed among the nation’s best accounting firms,” said Daryl Petrick, partner. “We have built a strong team of professionals serving a diverse client base. Our firm honors the character traits that are deeply embedded in our region, such as hard work, independence, and integrity.”
The Best of the Best recognition honors CPA firms across the country for their overall superior financial and operational performance on more than 50 criteria. The Best of the Best firms represent the top 10 percent of all firms that participated in the 2018 IPA Survey and Analysis of Firms. The right combination of planning, strategy and execution distinguish the Best of the Best firms in the U.S. and Canada. This is the first year Bowman & Company has received all three designations.
“Most firms don’t aspire to be average. Best of the Best firms are the peer group to which progressive firms aspire,” says Michael Platt, principal of the Platt Group and publisher of IPA. “In presenting the results of the IPA Best of the Best, we are proud to continue the tradition of expanding the imagination and the understanding of what is possible to achieve in running a public accounting firm.”
