GHJ Rises in Rank Among the 2019 Top 200 Accounting Firms by INSIDE Public Accounting

LOS ANGELES, CA (August 28, 2019) – Within a year, GHJ’ ranking increased from 120th to 113th on INSIDE Public Accounting’s list of the “Top 200 Largest Accounting Firms in the U.S.”

“It is extraordinary to see how much our firm has grown as a result of our business development initiatives and dedication to attract and retain top talent,” said Tom Barry, Managing Partner of GHJ. “I am proud to have us recognized and ranked so highly again on a national level.”

This definitive list, which is IPA’s 29th annual ranking of the largest accounting firms in the nation, was developed by gathering information from more than 500 firms that completed IPA’s Survey and Analysis of Firms.

The IPA survey and benchmarking report is the gold standard within the profession. Many professional associations also aided in the search for firms to add to the list, which is published annually. Annually more than 500 accounting firms across North America complete the in-depth financial and operational survey. The data is then used to compile the annual ranking of the nation’s largest accounting firms, which is unveiled in August of each year.

“This honor is a reflection of our commitment to our #BeMore culture and how having a balanced life allows us to bring our best to our clients,” Barry explained. “Our firm is committed to our core values, especially our dedication to growing great people so we can position our clients for future success and growth."

GHJ’ has put considerable effort into cultivating and implementing workforce diversity to better serve its community and clients. Through expanding its alternative hiring practice with programs such as participation in “The Mom Project” and hiring remote talent, along with its emphasis on work anytime/anywhere and the addition of non-traditional talent, GHJ has significantly deepened its talent pool in the past year.

“Our firm is on a growth trajectory, and we are looking forward to finding new ways to meet our clients’ needs,” Barry said. “We are looking forward to continued growth as we expand our service offerings.”
