Grassi & Co. Named One of the Firms to Watch by Accounting Today

March 25, 2010 –Each year, Accounting Today, one of the industry’s leading publications, presents a list of “Firms to Watch” along with their Top 100 list. Grassi & Co., bolstered by its tremendous growth and expansion this year, was chosen as a member of this prestigious group. The “Firms to Watch” list identifies firms that are not yet large enough to be included on the Top 100 list, but have experienced strong growth and show great potential to make the list in the future. According to Accounting Today, the list includes up-in-coming firms that look likely to become Regional Leaders in the future.

The firm is beginning to build a reputation for garnering this type of recognition. Last year, the firm was chosen by INSIDE Public Accounting as one of the Top 25 Best-Managed Accounting Firms in the country. In addition to that recognition, the firm was ranked as one of the top ten fastest-growing firms in the country, recognized as one of the top five Best-Managed Accounting Firms in the Northeast region of the country, and the firm was recognized as an “All Star” in long-range planning.

“Earning mention on the ‘Firms to Watch’ list is an achievement of which I’m very proud,” commented Louis C. Grassi, CPA, CFE, Managing Partner of Grassi & Co. “It is a testament to the staff of the firm and our management team that we have been recognized for our growth and potential for the future.”

These are formidable achievements, considering that there are more than 3,000 accounting firms nationally, including some very strong competition in the local and regional markets of New York.
