For Immediate Release: September 17, 2013
Carmel, IN - Raffa has once again earned its title as one of the best accounting firms in the nation. The Platt Group’s award-winning INSIDE Public Accounting (IPA) newsletter just published their Best of the Best Firms for 2013 list and named Raffa as one of the overall superior firms in the country.
IPA’s 20th annual listing honors the top 50 CPA firms in the nation based on 70 criteria points, such as the firm’s demonstrated consistency in an uncertain economy, performance, employee and client benefits and commitment to training. Raffa was picked as a Best of the Best firms from amongst more than 500 firms that participated in the 23rd IPA Annual Survey and Analysis of Firms.
IPA publishes the list every year to recognize firms at the top of their game, who have delivered exceptional financial and operational performance in the most recent fiscal year. The IPA formula removes imbalances such as firm size or location, to help identify those firms that others should be benchmarking themselves against.
“The IPA Best of the Best firms represent the pinnacle of high-performing accounting firms in the U.S. Each firm demonstrates the right combination of vision, planning, training, and execution to deliver superior performance,” says Michael Platt, principal of the Platt Group and publisher of the accounting trade publication, INSIDE Public Accounting. “We congratulate Raffa for being a representative of the best of what the profession has to offer,” he says.
“The success of the Best of the Best firms is a tribute to their leadership and staff. Their performance defies trends by capturing the long-term goals that are needed in order to sustain growth and client service through both prosperous times and down times,” says Kelly Platt, publisher of INSIDE Public Accounting. “We salute Raffa and recognize their overall management strategies as a model that the profession can be quite proud of,” Platt concludes.
“Our stability and continued growth in market place is evidence that a socially focused CPA firm does work and works well. Raffa, P.C proves that one can be a good corporate citizen providing significant contributions of hard dollars and pro bono services to those in need, encourage its employees to make positive contributions to our community and influence our clients to participate in this process as well, all the while exceeding the metrics of our competitors as measured in this survey“ said Tom Raffa, CEO and Managing Partner of Raffa, P.C.
Raffa is honored to be counted amongst these accounting firms. Just one month ago, Raffa was ranked as one of IPA’s “Top 100” CPA firm in the United States, according to its revenue. The announcement today further highlights Raffa’s exemplary dedication and outstanding service to its clients, staff and community.
