Portland, Ore. – February 9, 2023 – Perkins & Co, the largest locally owned accounting firm in Portland, announced today that they have won the 2023 Best of Accounting 10-Year Diamond Award for providing superior service to their clients for at least ten consecutive years. ClearlyRated’s Best of Accounting® Award winners have proven to be industry leaders in service quality based entirely on ratings provided by their clients. On average, clients of winning firms are over 70% more likely to be completely satisfied with the services provided compared to those working with non-winning firms.
Winners who earned the 10-year Diamond Award distinction have won the Best of Accounting Award for at least ten consecutive years, consistently earning industry-leading satisfaction scores from their clients. Of those firms that have participated in the Best of Accounting program, Perkins is the first, and thus far only, to have earned the 10-Year Diamond Award. Perkins & Co received satisfaction scores of 9 or 10 out of 10 from 75.7% of their clients, significantly higher than the industry’s average of 50% in 2022.
“The entire Perkins team works hard to make exceptional client service a priority and we are excited to be the first ever ten-time winner of the Best of Accounting Award,” said Perkins & Co president, Jared Holum. “We’re humbled by our clients’ feedback and will continue to strive for excellence and to ignite possibilities for our clients in the future!”
