WNDE Named as One of the Top 150 Accounting Firms in the U.S.
Ranks 149th on INSIDE Public Accounting’s IPA 200 List
National magazine INSIDE Public Accounting (IPA) has named White Nelson Diehl Evans LLP (WNDE) #149 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 5th straight year that WNDE has been mentioned on this list.
“I am grateful for the hard work and professionalism of our WNDE team, which has allowed us to be named as one of the top 150 accounting firms in the U.S.,” remarked Paul Treinen, Managing Partner. “We are also grateful to our many clients who put their faith in us, and enable us to be successful in the accounting field. We will continue to dedicate ourselves to providing top quality services, and challenge ourselves to find new ways to better 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.”
Decades ago, a typical accounting firm’s marketing plan involved “answering the phone,” he said. Today, with fierce competition, firms have consolidated and grown to attract new talent, offer additional services, and “develop a bigger footprint in the region and in the country.”
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.”
