The public accounting landscape is changing drastically. Firms look and operate differently than they did just a few years ago. Adams Brown is navigating these changes while continuing to grow.

To meet the needs of small- to medium-sized businesses today and tomorrow, the firm added new service offerings, pursued organic growth and engaged in strategic acquisitions. As a result, the firm is now the 110th largest CPA firm in the U.S., rising 10 spots in INSIDE Public Accounting’s (IPA) 2023 annual ranking.

“Having climbed more than 50 spots in the last three years, this recognition is evidence of how seriously we’ve taken investing in our people and extending our capabilities across advisory and specialty services,” said Ben Wilson, CPA, managing principal and CEO of Adams Brown.

In the last year, Adams Brown opened a new branch in Little Rock, AR, and acquired a technology and managed IT service company. However, it’s not just the numbers and growth; it’s the people at its heart that genuinely make a difference. The team has grown by 16.2% in the same timeframe.

“Our growth strategy is designed to preserve and enhance our culture,” said Wilson. “We are dedicated to seeking opportunities allowing us to further the success of both our clients and our team.”

The Inside Public Accounting report found non-compliance revenue continues to grow substantially and ownership structures of firms continue to evolve.

“With so much change in our industry, good things are in store for Adams Brown that will allow us to help our clients in additional ways. The future is bright,” said Wilson.
