Vault’s Accounting 50: The Not Quite Top 25

Earlier we sprung this year’s Vault Accounting 50 on you, with the surprising news that Grant Thornton had come out of nowhere to take the ultimate bragging rights. While all of the usual suspects managed to make into the Top 25 (many of them just barely), there are plenty of familiar names in the 26-50. Sure no one gives a damn but Vault went to the trouble putting this thing together and there’s some good people over there, so we’ll play ball.

48 (NR) Horne
49 (NR) Suby, Von Haden & Associates
49 (NR) Ehrhardt Keefe Steiner & Hottman
50 (46) Aronson & Company

Two notables that we’ll mention: 1) Reznick Group’s drop from 13 to 32 could be due to the respondents’ reaction to the tricks pulled during our Coolest Accounting Firm competition; 2) as for Kaufman, Rossin & Co., well, the firm is out of Florida. That should explain it.
