Grant Thornton Was the Most Dynamite Accounting Firm in 2012, Says Grant Thornton

Eddie Nusbaum & Co. put up a good number, $4.2 billion to be precise. That's 10.4% (USD) greater than last time around. That's pretty good. So good, the firm reports in its press release that "Grant Thornton led the six largest global accounting organizations in reported revenue growth rate for 2012."

And that appears to be true. A quick buzz through the other firms' announcements shows that none of them broke double-digit growth:

PwC — "At constant exchange rates, PwC's total global revenues rose by 8%."

Deloitte — 8.6% (USD)

Ernst & Young — 6.7% (USD)

KPMG — 1.4% (USD)

BDO — 8% (doesn't specify)

Sure, GT may have kicked everyone's asses up and down the block, but you know what? This isn't about money.  

“While we are proud of this accomplishment, I know our people will say the true measure of our success is how well we served our clients,” said Ed Nusbaum, CEO, Grant Thornton International Ltd. “By this measure, I am confident in saying it was a very good year and something we will build upon. Our continued ambition going into 2013 is to be recognised as the leading provider of high quality, professional services to dynamic organisations, helping them unlock their potential for growth.”

We'd love to hear how well you served your clients, GT readers. Consider it your gift to the rest of the GC community.
