Rockville, MD, October 23, 2007/ — Aronson & Company, a nationally ranked top 50 accounting and consulting firm was named as one of INSIDE Public Accounting’s top 25 Best of the Best National Accounting Firms for the fifth consecutive year. This celebrated award comes on the heels of Aronson & Company’s #42 ranking on the IPA100, their list of top 100 accounting firms in the country. Unlike the IPA100, which lists firms on the basis of revenues, the Best of the Best list is comprised of the best managed accounting firms in America and few companies can boast back to back wins for the past five years.

“This is a great honor,” remarked Lisa J. Cines, CPA, Managing Officer, Aronson & Company.  “To be listed once is an achievement, but I feel that being recognized for the fifth time is a testament to our consistent commitment to excellence and I am thrilled that IPA has chosen to recognize Aronson & Company once again.  This award is shared by our entire staff.”

Inside Public Accounting selects 25 firms out of over 300 competitors to populate their Best of the Best list. Once the study is completed, firms are ranked in 24 categories with the top points given to those who excel in areas that include: revenue growth, profitability, human resources and staff issues, management of resources, rewards to owners, and more. Aronson & Company debuted on the list in 2003.

“Best of the Best firms represent the top 25 in the nation who are pushing the right buttons and pulling the right levers to move the entire firm to a recognized level of excellence,” says Michael Platt, publisher of INSIDE Public Accounting.  “We salute these firms and recognize their overall management strategies as models that the profession can be quite proud of,” he adds.
