Bethesda, Md.-based Councilor Buchanan & Mitchell PC announced that they were named “CPA Firm of the Year 2015” by Washington SmartCEO at their recent CPA & ESQ Awards program.

The “CPA Firm of the Year” award recognizes the accounting firm that, during 2014, experienced growth and implemented processes or initiatives such as internal training programs, communication, multi-practice area policies, to help its professionals provide outstanding service.

“We are very excited to receive this award,” says Peter Reilly, president & MP. “During 2014, our firm experienced significant growth as the result of two mergers. CBM now boasts eight partners, 55 professionals and administrative staff members and two locations.”

When Reilly accepted the award on behalf of the firm, he was asked to share the best professional advice he’d ever received. He said, “The best advice I ever received was hire good people, give them the training and tools they need to be successful and provide them with challenging and rewarding work. I took that advice to heart and am proud to say that we have a great group. We provide our staff with ongoing training and education; a mentorship program; and assignments in both tax and auditing across a variety of industries. The result: well-rounded, experienced professionals who will become future leaders for CBM and the community with a wealth of knowledge to offer our clients.”
