Awards & Recognitions

The Importance of Awards & Recognitions

In today’s complex financial landscape, choosing the right accounting firm is crucial for a business’s success. When evaluating your options, there are several key factors to consider, one of which is awards and rankings. At first glance, rankings don’t mean all that much. However, the right rankings can reveal key information businesses can rely on to be confident in their selection of the right firm. For example, the INSIDE Public Accounting (IPA) ranking focuses explicitly on practice management metrics, including growth, profitability, and staffing. This indicates a strong emphasis on the firm’s internal operations, suggesting efficiency and stability.  While the ranking in Construction Executive (CE) Magazine shows a deep understanding and dedication to the construction industry.

Brown Edwards (BE) is a nationally ranked accounting firm bringing our clients the strengths that go along with our accolades and the accessibility and guidance often associated with a local firm. In addition to many local awards and recognitions, our firm has also been repeatedly included on the following lists:
