San Jose, California – December, 2020. Akene Consulting, LLC’s parent company, Petrinovich Pugh & Company, LLP (PP&Co), has been named to Forbes’ list of America’s Best Tax Firms. Of the 18,000+ tax and accounting firms in the country considered for the award, only 203 made the list in the ‘tax’ category. PP&Co, a Silicon Valley Accounting Firm, is privileged to have been one of only seven Bay Area firms to receive the distinction.
Forbes partnered with global market research firm Statista to compile the list. The research firm received some 1800 survey responses from CPAs, CFOs, in-house accountants, enrolled agents, and tax attorneys. Respondents were asked to provide a list of ten Tax and Accounting firms that they would recommend. Self-nominations from CPAs and CPA firms were not considered. Firms who received the most recommendations were included on the list.
In response to the news, Edward Davis (one of PP&Co’s three Managing Partners) had this to say. “We are honored to be included on the list. We take great pride in the considerable skill of our team and in their tireless commitment to serving our clients. This honor is particularly appreciated as it comes partly from our peers, for whom we have great respect. It is reassuring to know that that respect is reciprocated. Again, huge thanks to our team for the efforts they put forth every day, and to Forbes for recognizing us as one of the top recommended tax firms in the country.”
