Celebrating 17 Years of 'Best of the Best' and a Bounty of Other Honors: How We're Giving Back

IPA Best of the Best Firm 2023

4 min read

At MGA, we’ve always known that our strength lies in the people who work here and the clients we serve. This conviction has recently been validated by several prestigious awards, reflecting our commitment to excellence and people-first philosophy.

Each of these awards serves as a testament to us following a core belief in doing things differently here at MGA. We don’t aspire to be your average accounting firm, and we think that shows in how we operate both internally and externally. Today, we’re both proud and humble as we celebrate our accomplishments, and we invite you to join us in marking these milestones.

Celebrating Our Team's Commitment and Collaboration

Best & Brightest Companies to Work For in the Nation

For the sixth consecutive year, we have been honored as one of the Best & Brightest Companies to Work For in the Nation. This builds on our local recognition as one of Houston's Best & Brightest Companies to Work For. Jennifer Kluge, President and CEO of NABR and The Best and Brightest Program, remarked that our Firm’s continued presence on this list “proves that we are superior to market conditions and are elite thinkers committed to excellence.”

Houston Chronicle Top Workplaces

Our dedication to our team doesn't go unnoticed. According to the Workplace Survey, our Top Workplaces award from the Houston Chronicle is “positive proof that MGA puts its people first.” Importantly, this accolade is based solely on anonymous feedback collected from our own employees, ensuring an unbiased assessment of our workplace culture. To put this in context, only 200 companies made the top list out of 5,302 nominees, involving over 117,000 employees. This is the second year we've garnered this recognition.

Accounting Today Best Accounting Firms to Work For

We're also thrilled to be acknowledged by Accounting Today as one of the Best Accounting Firms to Work For, further solidifying our reputation for workplace excellence.

IPA Best of the Best Firm

And the crown jewel? The IPA Best of the Best Firm award, an annual honor we have received an incredible 17 times. The award relies on more than 50 metrics, and we're among the select few firms that “produce superior financial and operational results while maintaining a solid foundation for growth.”

A Gift of 17: How We’re Celebrating by Giving to BEAR’s Holiday Program

As we celebrate 17 years of being recognized as a ‘Best of the Best,’ we're reflecting not just on our achievements but also on the contributions of those who have made this journey possible: our esteemed clients and dedicated team members. They are unquestionably the pillars of our success, inspiring us daily to set higher benchmarks in all we do.

To give back in a way that reflects the collective spirit of our clients and team, we have chosen to donate to BEAR’s holiday program. Our donation will provide 17 underprivileged children, each representing a year of our success, with two brand-new gifts for the holiday season.

We chose BEAR's holiday program because its mission resonates with our own core values of engagement, collaboration, and innovation. The program targets at-risk and CPS-involved children who, due to unfortunate circumstances, may not experience the magic and joy often associated with the holiday season. We believe that in a small yet meaningful way, our contribution can spark hope and happiness for these children. This act of giving does more than fulfill a corporate responsibility; it serves as an extension of the culture we've nurtured, which puts people first and aspires to make a tangible difference in the community.

Unparalleled Service through a Culture of Excellence: Sound like Something You’d Like to Be a Part Of?

We believe these accolades directly translate into unparalleled service for our clients. Our people-first culture promotes a work environment conducive to higher levels of engagement, collaboration, and innovation, ensuring that we provide our clients with nothing short of the best.

For those looking to be part of an organization that values its people and clients alike, we’re always looking for top talent. By joining our team, you’re becoming part of a culture that’s been vetted and celebrated for its excellence multiple times over.
