Perkins, with over 100 employees, is the only accounting firm ranked in the Medium Company category.
“To receive accolades for the way we do business is an honor, but to receive them from our own employees means even more,” states Gary Reynolds, President. “It is a real testament to our firm culture and our commitment to our employees.
