Print this Article | Send to Colleague

For the sixth year in a row, Brown Edwards has been recognized as a top accounting firm on the INSIDE Public Accounting (IPA) Top 100 List, moving up another five spots on the list this year to number 73.

The IPA 500 recognizes the top U.S.-based accounting firms and is the most comprehensive list of North American public accounting firms available. Each year, IPA ranks the largest public accounting firms in the U.S. based on participating firms’ net revenues.

“Through our strategic acquisitions and organic growth initiatives, we continue to expand our geographic reach and broaden our client services in key industry niches. While this two-pronged effort benefited us in the IPA rankings, our continued growth is, more importantly, attributable to the on-going commitment and client-focused service that our Partners and Associates bring to our clients. Even as we now can bring the resources of a Top 75 firm to our clients, we are still committed to being accessible and available when they need us," states CEO Jason Hartman. 

The Brown Edwards team has expanded both organically and through mergers in key markets. Our geographic footprint has grown to include twelve offices in three states; Virginia, West Virginia, and Tennessee. Our expansion has not just helped us to reach more clients geographically but also aids in reaching potential clientele throughout a broad range of industries.

"We are thankful for our employees who demonstrate our core values every day —their hard work and their desire to help each other and our clients is what makes us successful.  We will continue to look for additional expansion opportunities that will bring value and add talent to the strong bench that we currently have. Being recognized as an IPA Top 100 firm places us in a position to seek new growth opportunities," COO Laura Sprouse.

Brown Edwards is a full-service regional accounting firm with offices in Virginia, West Virginia, and Tennessee, and is included in Inside Public Accounting’s list as one of the top 100 firms in the United States, an Inc. 5000 Fastest-Growing Company, and a Top 50 Construction Accounting Firm as compiled by Construction Executive magazine.
