The Firm Attributes High Standing to its Strategic Growth

SAN FRANCISCO, Calif. – BPM has been recognized as the fifth largest accounting firm in the Greater Bay Area by the San Francisco Business Times and the Silicon Valley Business Journal, making it the largest non-Big Four firm. BPM is also acknowledged as the third largest firm in the East Bay.

Ranked by local client service professionals, the list includes accounting firms with offices in the Greater Bay Area, which includes the counties of Alameda, Contra Costa, Marin, Monterey, San Benito, San Francisco, San Mateo, Santa Clara and Santa Cruz.

“Our efforts to grow the BPM brand from San Diego to Seattle is an integral part of our Innovation Strategy,” said BPM CEO Jim Wallace. “We are determined to keep investing in the future and strengthening the expertise for which we are known. We want to be relevant not only today, but also tomorrow and aspire to be the ‘firm of choice’ for clients and associates.”

BPM’s growth is attributed to its recent expansion of specialty service offerings throughout the Bay Area. Over the past year, it grew its outsourced advisory services to include technology solutions, HR consulting and COO/CFO resources, and continued to cultivate its portfolio of clients in modern finance industries, such as cryptocurrency and blockchain. BPM also expanded its footprint to new geographic regions through business combinations in Stockton, Orange County, and Eugene, Ore. All of which provide more opportunities for its clients and people.

In 2018, BPM was acknowledged for leading change in the accounting profession as the “Innovative Firm of the Year” by LEA Global, the second largest international association in the world. Earlier this month, BPM received Inavero’s “Best of Accounting™ Award” in client service excellence for the fourth consecutive year.

“Our growth is gaining momentum, and we are proud of the hard work our staff has put in to position us at the top in the industry,” said Rich Bellucci, BPM’s Chairman of the Board and Partner.
