Argy, Wiltse & Robinson, issued a press release announcing its 15th anniversary. In the release, AWR, with $30 million in annual revenue, described itself as one of the nation's fastest-growing certified public accounting and business advisory firms in the Washington, D.C. metropolitan region, as well as one the nation's 25 best-managed firms.

What I found interesting was what AWR president and CEO Paul Argy says in the press release. He attributes the firm's success to its ability to attract and retain a highly skilled workforce, thereby allowing the firm to acquire and maintain a solid client base. He goes on to say, "The fact that we don't serve public companies gives us greater flexibility and eliminates the burnout that is typical of so many public accounting firms. This factor, combined with the positive work-life balance we encourage, has allowed us to cultivate a very high-caliber staff."
