Kansas City, Mo. – Kansas City accounting and consulting firm MarksNelson LLC, is named one of the top accounting firms in the Midwest and also one of the fastest-growing firms in the U.S. by Accounting Today, the magazine for senior public accounting and tax professionals. The separate distinctions demonstrate the firm’s commitment to its core values.


In selecting the top regional accounting firms, the publication ranks firms by revenue in 10 sub-regions of the United States and then bases its selections on measuring each individual firm on several factors including performance and growth.  The Midwest region includes seven states: Kansas, Missouri, Minnesota, Iowa, Nebraska, North Dakota and South Dakota. This is the second consecutive year for MarksNelson to make the prestigious national list and is the only firm from the Kansas City area. Currently, MarksNelson is ranked as the 16th largest accounting firm in the Midwest.

I am proud of our team and what we continue to accomplish staying true to our core values: commitment, curiosity, excellence and vigilance.”


For the first time, Accounting Today also ranked MarksNelson as the 15th fastest-growing accounting firm in the United States. In the last year, MarksNelson integrated two companies, Community Edge and Marsh and Company, which expanded the services provided to clients in location strategy, site selection, incentives, economic development counsel for companies and communities of all sizes, as well as historic and low- income housing tax credits.
