  • 3/25/2019

CLA has yet again been recognized as one of the 2019 top 10 accounting firms by Accounting Today. The publication ranks the top 100 firms annually. For the second year, CLA comes in at number eight.

Of the top 10 firms, CLA saw the most significant revenue growth, exceeding 10 percent. In fact, the firm saw growth across all categories, including number of locations, partners, and total employees.

One thing the CLA team loves about this listing is the footnote indicating that it does not have a headquarters location – there is no single place from which the firm is controlled or directed.

The entrepreneurial spirit runs deep within CLA and team members are truly empowered to make decisions locally. The firm believes in “power to the front line” and as such, does not have a formal headquarters.

“As a firm, we exist to create opportunities. Keeping that at the center of everything we do has been key to our continued growth,” says Denny Schleper, CLA’s CEO. “Our CLA professionals work tirelessly empowering each other to create opportunities, elevate our talent, and deepen our relationships with our clients and our communities.”

CLA is excited for the future indeed.
