The 2020 Accounting MOVE Project recently named BeachFleischman a Best CPA Firm in Equity Leadership for Women. The 2020 Accounting MOVE Project recognizes the Best Public Accounting Firms for Women, and Equity Leadership firms are selected where women comprise a minimum of 30% of partners and principals. BeachFleischman was recognized for having 46% of the firm’s partners and principals comprised of women. The firm was also acknowledged for our innovative growth efforts to draw midcareer women into practice development.
According to the findings of the 2020 Accounting MOVE Project report, women are leading accounting & advisory firms’ forays into new lines of business with unconventional perspectives and new approaches. Among the most productive strategies driving new revenues and new career paths include:
- To seed new lines of business with first-time clients, firms need strong internal referrals, and internal referrals are a longstanding strength for women.
- Women who started boutique firms decades ago are rejoining large firms, bringing with them entrepreneurial leadership that fuels new lines of business.
- Firm women’s initiatives are invaluable sources of talent for fast-track advisory service launches that pivot on diverse perspectives and fresh approaches.
