FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: October 6, 2010
Doeren Mayhew Named to INSIDE Public Accounting’s “Best of the Best” List for 2010
TROY, MICHIGAN – Doeren Mayhew, Troy-based certified public accounting and management
consulting firm, and T.R. Moore & Company, Houston, Texas-based certified public accounting
and management consulting firm that merged into Doeren Mayhew in July 2010, were both named
by INSIDE Public Accounting (IPA) as “Best of the Best” CPA firms in the nation.
INSIDE Public Accounting’s Best of the Best recognition annually honors 25 firms for their wise
management and superior operational performance on more than 50 criteria. This is the 17th year
IPA has named the Best of the Best accounting firms. More than 385 firms participated in this
year’s IPA Annual Survey and Analysis of Firms. Each of the firms is eligible for the
designation, regardless of size. Doeren Mayhew has received this honor for 15 of those years.
Mark Crawford, managing director of Doeren Mayhew, said, “The reason we keep getting
recognized as one of the Top 25 firms is our focus on the markets we serve, the expertise we
bring to the table, and the attitude of all of our valued employees providing those services. That
translates into deep industry insight, low staff turnover, efficiency in our service delivery, and
exceptional client longevity. In fact, many of our clients have been with us for over 30 years.”
“To have both Doeren Mayhew and T.R. Moore & Company named to the list in our last year as
separate entities (the merger was effective July 1) is a phenomenal achievement and a precursor
to an even brighter future,” said Crawford.
“Best of the Best firms demonstrate the right combination of vision, planning, and execution to
deliver superior performance,” says Michael Platt, principal of the Platt Group and publisher of
INSIDE Public Accounting. “Firms that earn this designation represent the best of what the
accounting profession has to offer, and this is the first time two of our Best of the Best firms
have merged together,” Platt says.
“The success of these firms is a tribute to their leadership. Their stellar performance defies economic
trends by recognizing the long-term goals that are needed in order to sustain growth through both
prosperous times and down times,” says Platt. “We salute all of these firms and recognize their
overall management strategies as models that the profession can be quite proud of,” she says.
