BGW CPA, PLLC was pleased to find its name among top accounting firms in the Charlotte area, thanks to inclusion in Charlotte Business Journal’s weekly industry list. Each week, the Business Journal researches and produces an industry list, ranking Charlotte’s top companies in a particular business category. Last week, the Charlotte Business Journal listed the area’s largest accounting firms, ranked by number of local professional staff. BGW CPA, PLLC took the No. 14 spot on the list of Charlotte’s top 25 firms.
“We’re really excited about our placement,” says firm co-founder Adam Boatsman. “The companies at the very top are the ‘Big 4’ firms -- huge, multinational companies with headquarters in the Northeast or even overseas. We seek a more hands-on, localized approach for our clients. Among mid-sized firms in the area, we placed quite well. And we’re still growing!”
