Published on April 19, 2017

This annual award is presented by the CPA Firm Management Association (CPAFMA) and has been awarded to some of the country's most experienced and respected firm practice managers since its inception in 1989.

The ACE Award -- which stands for Achievement, Commitment and Excellence is awarded to firm management professionals who carry such titles firm administrator, director of administration, chief operating officer, chief financial officer and chief executive officer.

Regardless of the title, nominees must be a CPAFMA member and hold a senior-level administration position for a public accounting firm. Criteria for selection focus on leadership and the individual's strategic impact on the firm's profit and growth. Strong candidates for the ACE Award will have made major contributions to their firms by implementing and overseeing programs that:

• contribute to the firm's long-term growth;
• help the firm meet its strategic goals;
• improve firm profitability;
• help create an employee-friendly culture that encourages long-term staff retention; and
• emphasize the value of entrepreneurship, leadership, continuous learning, marketing and client service skills.

The 2017 ACE Award will be presented at CPAFMA’s National Practice Management Conference, June 20-23, 2017 in Fort Worth during the Conference’s Diamonds & Denim event. Recipients receive a one-year complimentary CPAFMA membership, free attendance at the next year’s CPAFMA National Practice Management Conference, a handsome plaque and promotion for both the individual and the firm.
