Platform Accounting Group Wins Karbon Excellence Award

Salt Lake City, February 26, 2024

Platform Accounting Group is proud to announce it was selected as the winner for the 2023 Karbon Excellence Award for Practice Excellence, in recognition of its commitment to helping the industry evolve through innovative use of technology.

The Practice Excellence category is Karbon’s most significant award and recognizes an accounting firm that is creating extraordinary outcomes through outstanding leadership and innovation, demonstrated by sustained success and growth.

Platform has more than doubled in size every year, over the last seven years, and has more than 600 employees across 11 states. It also recently secured $85 million in funding that will support its continued mission to preserve boutique accounting firms across the United States.

“We are honored Karbon selected us as the winner for Practice Excellence,” said Tyson Chapman, Platform’s COO. “At Platform we pride ourselves on excellent leadership, innovation and helping local accounting firms grow and thrive. We started Platform nearly 10 years ago and continue to make an important and lasting impact in the accounting industry.”

Platform acquires and supports boutique accounting and professional services teams across the country, with 28 locally-branded firms. The group provides succession for the massive wave of retiring CPAs while simultaneously continuing growth of firms, protecting their boutique culture, and greatly enhancing the support and opportunities for the remaining staff. A testament to the strong culture and value of the Platform network, Platform maintains an acquisition employee retention of nearly 100 percent. While employees still enjoy the benefits of being part of a local firm embedded in a community, they gain access to a much broader range of growth opportunities and resources.
