Sikich Named as a 2012 All-Star Firm by INSIDE Public Accounting

NAPERVILLE, Ill., Oct. 11, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Sikich LLP, a leading accounting, advisory, technology and managed services firm, has been named a 2012 All-Star firm by INSIDE Public Accounting (IPA), a recognition stemming from the firm's fast-paced growth in the past year. Sikich was also named as one of the top five firms in the areas of computer consulting and mergers and acquisitions (M&A).

"We are honored to receive this recognition, as it reflects our success in achieving a significant firm-wide goal—providing a variety of professional services that comprehensively help our clients grow their own businesses," said Jim Sikich, CEO and managing partner. "As Sikich continues to grow quickly, our clients are finding it easier to reach their long-term goals because they can receive guidance through us for all kinds of challenges directly related to their businesses, from technology solutions to acquisitions advisory and more."

Now recognized as a leading accounting and professional services firm throughout the nation, Sikich attributes its success not only to continually adding innovative services, but also to hiring the best talent to deliver those services meticulously. In 2012, Sikich experienced revenue growth of nearly 10 percent when compared to the previous year, and the firm also increased its staff by 15 percent—a step that allows Sikich to continue providing clients top-quality accounting, technology, financial and other services.

As a firm that offers strategic computer consulting and M&A advisory services through its investment bank, Sikich leveraged its experience in these areas by implementing technology solutions and conducting M&A transactions for the firm while continuing to serve its clients. In 2012, for example, Sikich merged with Denver-based Streamline Systems, a highly respected Microsoft Dynamics AX partner specialized in the manufacturing industry. Through this merger, Sikich was able to expand its technology practice by adding Microsoft Dynamics AX to its product offerings.

This annual recognition is presented by IPA, a newsletter published by The Platt Group. All selected firms are chosen solely on their performance in specific areas and are compared with the hundreds of others participating in the IPA Annual Survey and Analysis of Firms. This year, IPA had a record-breaking year for participation, with more than 400 firms completing the survey.
