Kassouf & Co., P.C., has been selected as one of the nation’s 50 “2016 Best of the Best Accounting Firms” by Inside Public Accounting. Kassouf & Co. is the only Alabama firm selected for this honor.
IPA’s annual “Best of the Best” list recognizes superior financial and operational performance based on more than 70 IPA criteria. The right combination of planning, strategy and execution distinguish “Best of the Best” firms from among more than 540 firms that participated in IPA’s 26th Annual Survey and Analysis of Firms.
Gerard Kassouf, CPA and Managing Director of Kassouf & Co., is proud of the Kassouf recognition three years in a row. Mr. Kassouf explains “the firm operates with a long range strategic vision, and a creative work environment filled with professional satisfaction, building relationships with clients who expect and deserve excellence.”
“Best of the Best firms are financially successful, but that’s only part of what makes them exceptional,” says Michael Platt, principal of the Platt Group and publisher of the accounting trade publication, INSIDE Public Accounting, in the IPA press release for this event. “Best of the Best firms are built on a strong foundation that considers the needs of staff, owners and clients as the three key constituencies of any successful business. They are not content to stand still. They plan ahead for the future of the firm and they anticipate the needs of their clients.”
