TBC Ranked As A Top Mid Atlantic CPA Firm by Accounting Today



When Accounting Today recently released its 2017 Top 100 Firms Plus Accounting’s Regional Leaders list in mid-March, TBC happily found itself included in the Top Firms: Mid-Atlantic Area. Among the list of the top 35 firms in the areas that consist of New Jersey, New York, and Pennsylvania, was TBC in the 32nd slot and a 4.3% rate of growth over the past year. This was the first year TBC has been included in the annual report measured by firm revenue.

“I find it extremely positive that our Albany, NY firm is inching closer towards being a top contender in a region comprised of 19 New York City firms that are included on the nation’s top 100 list,” said TBC’s managing partner James Drislane. “It’s surreal and a testament to our growth.”

Nearing its fifth decade of client service, TBC has been serving thousands of businesses and individuals in the areas of accounting, auditing, tax and advisory services, as well as other specialty services including pension administration services, employee benefit plan audits, estates and trust planning and administration, business valuations, forensic accounting and cost segregation studies. Over the last 45 years, the Firm has significantly grown its client base and looks to continue this trend, while continuing to provide the close, personal attention that the clients need.

One aspect of the Firm that has certainly changed is its size. Starting with only four employees, today it employs 95 associates, including 53 CPAs which is the most in any Capital Region public accounting firm. While the Firm has moved its physical location several times to accommodate the growing number of employees, the current staff all operate out of one office building located at 7 Washington Square – and there are no plans to change the headquarters.

The Firm’s commercial clientele includes real estate developers, construction contractors, distributors, manufacturers, professional service firms, automotive dealers, retailers, technology companies, and wholesalers among other businesses. To learn more about TBC’s history and its continued growth, the Firm’s website includes a timeline of its milestones at http://www.tbccpa.com/about/history.
