Buffalo, NY – Freed Maxick CPAs, P.C has again secured a spot on the Accounting Today Top 100 list for 2017, making it a Top 100 firm in the nation.


This list is an annual ranking of the largest firms across the country, and offers a host of benchmarking data as well as strategies and advice from the most successful firms. Coming in at #84 with a Firm revenue of $47.5 million, it will be Freed Maxick’s 26th consecutive year on the list. The Firm debuted in the Top 100 back in 1991.


Mark Stebbins, Vice Chairman, Tax Practice leader and Innovation champion was quoted in this year’s publication, specifically discussing the importance of innovation. “It is the lifeblood of a CPA firm’s culture that is committed to growth. Our objectives include the creation and fostering of a firm-wide culture that encourages and rewards innovative thinking, and is viewed as a business function.”


He also addressed the industry trend of firm consolidation, stating that it “continues to foster an environment of threats and opportunities as national firms acquire market—dominant local firms. This creates opportunity for the remaining local firms to take advantage of the fallout from changes in fees, engagement management, etc. However, when regional firms acquire smaller firms in a local market, it presents a threat as the regional firms introduce services into a potentially underserved market that weren’t previously available.”


This is a significant accomplishment for Freed Maxick and the firm is proud to take its place among the top firms in the U.S.
