BMF Named a 2021 Best of the Best Firm by INSIDE Public Accounting

We are excited to announce that we have been named to the 2021 Best of the Best Firms list by INSIDE Public Accounting (IPA), an award-winning newsletter for the public accounting profession. This is the second consecutive year we’ve be awarded this prestigious recognition.


The 2021 IPA Best of the Best recognizes the highest-performing firms within the profession, based on more than 50 metrics, and are selected exclusively on their performance in specific areas of management, growth and strategic vision. More than 520 firms were eligible for this accolade – ranging from 11 employees to nearly 3,000 – but only 50 make the list.

“Given the challenges, obstacles and uncertainties of 2020, being named an IPA Best of the Best firm is an especially notable achievement,” says Michael Platt, principal of the Platt Group and publisher of the accounting trade publication, INSIDE Public Accounting. “Combined with the overarching impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic were societal stressors (heightened racial justice awareness and a divisive presidential election), employee stressors (homeschooling, remote work, and burnout), business stressors (remote onboarding, productivity, engagement and firm culture) and client stressors (shutdowns, cash flow, uncertainty and existential threats for many). Firms that were able to overcome these landmines while turning in stellar performance are to be celebrated.”

Along with being named a 2021 Best of the Best Firm, BMF was also recognized as a Great Lakes Regional Leader and a Top 200 Accounting Firm in the nation. There are more than 46,000 public accounting firms in the United States.
