Marcum Leads Audit Industry in SEC Client Gains for Fourth Quarter
New York City, NY – Marcum LLP, a top national accounting and advisory firm, secured more net new Securities and Exchange Commission clients in the fourth quarter of 2013 than all other national audit firms, including the Big Four. According to Audit Analytics data published today in Accounting Today, Marcum’s SEC practice had a net gain of five new SEC clients for the quarter, a period during which six of the top 12 firms posted net losses or zero change in SEC engagements.
“Our fourth quarter results rounded off a very productive year for our SEC practice,” said David C. Bukzin, Partner-in-Charge of Marcum’s SEC Practice Group. “We started out 2013 with an extremely strong first quarter, when we were the top gainer among all non-Big Four national auditing firms. Our continued momentum throughout the year is a gratifying reflection of the trust our clients place in Marcum and the superior service we are committed to delivering to support their growth and ongoing success. We look forward to an even stronger 2014.”
