PrimeGlobal Welcomes Two New Member Firms

PrimeGlobal is pleased to announce that the accounting firms of Mesch McBride in Fort Worth, Texas, and Raffa of Washington D.C. (FY14 net revenue of $41.1 million), have become the newest members to join the association’s North American region.

Ranked at No. 84 on the IPA100 list of largest firms in the nation, Raffa provides exemplary advisory and back office solutions to both entrepreneurial businesses and nonprofit organizations. The firm helps clients to effectively and efficiently manage critical processes – from accounting and tax to human resources and technology – while maintaining a cultural focus on service and citizenship.  As a Certified B Corporation – an honor shared by an elite group of companies like Etsy, Ben & Jerry’s and Patagonia – Raffa voluntarily meets higher standards of transparency, accountability and performance. Certified B Corps offer a positive vision of a better way to do business and are committed to addressing and working to resolve the pressing issues facing our communities.

“I have been so impressed with Raffa’s dedication to quality, sustainability and community,” says North America Chief Regional Officer Michelle Arnold. “The firm is not only focused on being a partner to its clients, but in helping them to make the world a better place. These values fit in perfectly with the PrimeGlobal spirit.”

With nearly 35 years of excellence in client service, Mesch McBride prides itself on two things:  genuine client-partner involvement and lifelong relationships. The firm’s tax, assurance and wealth management services focus primarily on private companies in the areas of manufacturing, construction, real estate, dealership and distribution, oil & gas, private equity, family office, health care, professional and financial services.

“When I looked at the focus of this firm, I knew immediately that their ideals would be a perfect fit with our current members,” says Arnold. “I believe that given their commitment to improving the client experience and strengthening relationships, their membership in PrimeGlobal will be an enriching experience and provide great value.”

PrimeGlobal is among the top five associations of independent accounting firms in the world, comprised of over 300 independent public accounting firms in 90 countries.
