WICHITA — For the fourth consecutive year, Adams Brown made Accounting Today’s annual ranking of the Top Firms in the Midwest. Additionally, the firm was added to the Firms to Watch list, a new honor this year.
“Business owners in the communities we serve and beyond are searching for customized solutions to help them achieve their goals,” said Brian Staats, CPA, CGMA, managing partner. “This recognition is a result of working to bring them the services they need, especially in the targeted industries we serve. Most importantly, we remain focused on cultivating a rewarding work environment that allows our team to provide top-notch customer service. It’s an exciting team to be part of the Adams Brown team!”
Adams Brown’s growth rate is attributed to the acquisition of Wichita-based Fortner & Short LLC in November of 2021 and the acquisition of Overland-Park based Kane, Mitchell & Co. LLC in December of 2021. The firm also pivoted to provide new accounting, advisory and consulting services to business owners to help them maximize COVID-19 federal relief programs, including PPP and the Employee Retention Tax Credit (ERTC).
Headquartered in Wichita, Adams Brown is one of 28 firms included as regional leaders in a territory that includes Iowa, Kansas, Minnesota, Missouri, Nebraska, North Dakota and South Dakota.
