Schneider Downs Featured in INSIDE Public Accounting’s 2022 Best of the Best Accounting Firms List

“Welcome to the 9-figures club, Schneider Downs.

Schneider Downs & Co. LLC, based in downtown Pittsburgh, was No. 54 with revenue of $103.36 million, a new record and more than 9.7% above its prior high of $94.18 million when it ranked 56th on IPA’s 2021 list. Prior to 2021, Schneider Downs was the sole local to make the ranking since 2013.

Steven Thompson, who is Schneider Downs’ co-CEO, along with Christopher McElroy, said it’s especially gratifying to move up in the IPA rankings because it’s difficult to do so without an acquisition. ‘Our growth continues to be fueled organically, through the introduction of new services,’ Thompson said. ‘This past year saw a steady increase in demand for many of our consulting services, including risk advisory, transaction advisory, managed accounting services and technology. We also saw growth across our core practice areas: tax, audit, consulting and wealth management services. We believe this is a validation of our market strategy, which is to offer a broad spectrum of services that our clients need — all serviced by experienced professionals. As our clients’ needs change, we’re adding services to meet those needs. We’re grateful that our clients choose Schneider Downs for those services.'”
