Sensiba San Filippo's John Sensiba Recognized as Managing Partner Elite by Accounting Today

PLEASANTON, Calif., Oct. 10, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Sensiba San Filippo LLP (SSF), a leading Northern California-based CPA and business-consulting firm, is proud to announce that Managing Partner John Sensiba has been named in Accounting Today's Managing Partner Elite class of 2014. John is one of ten exceptional firm leaders chosen in the publication's third annual list.

The "Managing Partner Elite" list honors managing partners from small, midsized and large accounting firms and identifies the qualities and characteristics that make a cutting-edge leader. Amongst his peers, John Sensiba was distinguished as the "Changemaker." John's proposal and implementation of abandoning eat-what-you-kill compensation in favor of rewarding each partner for contribution to the overall success of the firm was recognized. The change resulted in a firm that is tightly focused on strategy as it grows in both geographical and vertical reach. John also changed the way the firm developed talent through hiring a dedicated learning and development manager; giving prospective partners leadership training; and fostering a supportive and progressive culture.

"I am honored to be included in such a talented group of industry professionals," said John Sensiba, Managing Partner, Sensiba San Filippo. "I am particularly honored that this recognition celebrates our transformation, which was made possible through the collective hard work, insight and dedication of the entire firm. Each member of the Sensiba family demonstrates leadership every day in shaping our future, and I have them to thank for our progress and continued growth."

Accounting Today evaluated nominees based on a number of characteristics, including recruiting and retention, strategic planning, succession planning, marketing, and implementation of technology as a modern CPA firm.

With over 25 years of experience in professional accounting, John Sensiba is focused on directing the firm's strategic plan and market growth, providing oversight on all executive and operational decisions, and leading the firm's staff in the delivery of superior client service. John is also the chairman of the board for Valley Care Health Systems, a founding and continuing member of the Pleasanton Chamber of Commerce's Business and Community Political Action Committee, a member of the Rotary Club of Pleasanton, and an instructor in the Leadership Pleasanton program.
