Year-over-year growth drives Firm to #48 and expands client resources and reach

SAN FRANCISCO, Calif. – BPM, one of the 50 largest public accounting and advisory firms in the country, has been recognized by INSIDE Public Accounting (IPA) as one of its 2020 “IPA Top 100 Firms.” Ranked by U.S. net revenue and compiled by an analysis of responses from more than 540 firms, BPM moved from the #50 position in 2019 to #48 in 2020 – growth that extends the Firm’s geographic reach and broadens its client services and resources.

The noteworthy jump landed BPM on IPA’s exclusive “IPA 100 Fastest-Growing Firms” lists, which include the top ten firms in the country with the largest increases in net revenue through both organic growth and total growth in the past year. The Firm saw a 16.6% surge in organic growth and a 21.5% increase in total growth in 2020, developments that helped BPM add expertise in architecture and engineering, real estate and construction.

“Through our strategic business combinations along the West Coast, we have seen tremendous growth as a Firm in the past year, both in terms of our expanding staff and, more importantly, the services we offer to clients in new sectors,” said BPM’s CEO Jim Wallace. “The hiring of Scharrell Jackson as our Chief Operating Officer has been instrumental to our combination efforts, and we look forward to continuing on this trajectory and serving clients where they are doing business.”

The IPA’s Annual Survey and Analysis of firms is one of the longest-running and most comprehensive Management of an Accounting Practice (MAP) surveys in the U.S. It is open to all firms in North America and launches each January. Participants are benchmarked against their competitors and range in size from $1 million to $1 billion in net revenue. The full list includes the IPA 100 (Big 4 through $43.7 million net revenue), 200 ($39.5 to $20 million net revenue), 300 ($20 to $11.6 million net revenue) and 400 ($11.5 to $6 million net revenue).
