From Our Chairman & CEO

As the U.S. economy outperformed expectations in 2023, businesses proved their resilience and vitality.

The recovery was fueled by robust consumer spending and a gradual easing of supply chain bottlenecks. Unemployment remained at a historic low, interest rates peaked, and businesses adapted to the changing market dynamics.

Inflation, while high, showed signs of improvement, and the Fed’s steep rate hikes came to a halt while signaling the start of a return to lower rates early this year. Yet, this past year was not without challenges.

The commercial real estate sector faced headwinds, and the regional banking disruption led to slower loan growth. The housing market had to find its footing again, and the U.S. lost its AAA rating with Fitch due to the debt ceiling episode.

However, in true entrepreneurial spirit, our clients navigated these difficulties and capitalized on emerging opportunities.

We are proud to have supported you on this journey and look forward to continuing to work with you. Your success is our success, and it’s an honor to celebrate our collective achievements in 2023 as we look forward to a fruitful future together.

Chairman & CEO

Marcum’s Growth and Enhanced Client Service

We leaped up the ranks to be named the 13th largest accounting firm in the country (cheers to Accounting Today), rolled out the welcome mat for hundreds of new employees, and expanded our operations through two successful mergers. We’re not just growing; we’re evolving, bringing more depth and broader knowledge to our clients.

We kicked off 2023 by joining forces with Melanson, P.C., a New Hampshire-based accounting firm. With a team of nearly 115 partners and associates, these professionals are known for their experience serving clients in the government and nonprofit sectors. Our Chairman and CEO nailed it when he said, “The Melanson team is highly regarded for their leadership, commitment to superior client service, and dedication to the highest industry standards.”

Then, in June, we expanded our premier construction practice in the Mid-Atlantic by bringing in McCarthy & Company. Construction Executive recognized this Pennsylvania-based full-service tax and accounting firm as a Top 50 Accounting Firm. This strategic merger added two new regional offices and 70 partners and associates who not only get the local market but are laser-focused on delivering top-notch client service.

Client Experience

In 2023, we were thrilled to discover that an overwhelming majority of our clients who participated in our client feedback initiatives gave us a resounding vote of confidence. We’re not resting on our laurels; we’re relentlessly refining our services to keep those satisfaction levels sky-high. Here are some of the highlights from our client surveys:

  • 100% of clients interviewed say they enjoy their relationships with us.
  • 98% say Marcum delivers high-quality, error-free work.
  • 97% rank Marcum’s understanding of their business and industry as exceeding expectations.
