WNDE Named to 2017 INSIDE Public Accounting’s IPA 200 List
National magazine INSIDE Public Accounting (IPA) has named White Nelson Diehl Evans LLP (WNDE) #148 on its IPA 200 list of the country’s top accounting firms. The IPA 200 survey is highly regarded as one of the most thorough, complete and accurate sets of rankings and trends in the public accounting profession. This is the fourth straight year that WNDE has been mentioned on this list.
“I’m grateful to our WNDE team for all their hard work which has resulted in this achievement,” remarked Dave Doran, Managing Partner. “I’m optimistic that our staff will continue in its efforts to provide the wide range of services and expertise our clients require, as well as look for new and better ways to serve our clients.”
INSIDE Public Accounting is a publication owned by The Platt Group in Indianapolis, and assists accounting firms nationwide in growing their businesses. Mike Platt, principal of The Platt Group, notes that competition between accounting firms has grown significantly in recent years, necessitating that successful firms constantly reassess what services they offer to best serve their clients. He added, “Successful firms need to continually demonstrate to clients that they are offering valued services, and not merely a competitive price.”
He continued, “Accounting firms’ traditional services of tax and audit don’t have the highest value in the eyes of their clients. Instead they are asking, ‘How can I grow my business? How can I set myself apart?’” Firms continue to find ways to serve the increasingly complex needs of their clients, and provide meaningful career opportunities for their employees.” Inclusion on the IPA 200 list is an indication that WNDE is headed in the right direction professionally, he added, “and is developing the services it needs to be successful in the marketplace.”
