TORONTO, Dec. 1, 2017 /CNW/ - Collins Barrow National is pleased to announce it is recruiting an innovative, like-minded Toronto firm with an entrepreneurial culture to join its expanding network.
The all-Canadian network is one of the country's largest associations of chartered accounting firms and has seen revenue growth of more than $80 million in 5 years. Thanks to its cooperative model, Collins Barrow offers firms the unique opportunity to "punch above their weight class" as part of a strong national network, while still maintaining autonomous ownership and management.
Most accounting groups are integrated and require firms to yield independence to conform to national standards. Instead, Collins Barrow functions as a platform that member firms can leverage to build on their strengths and the specialty needs of their individual markets. Collins Barrow firms, in 50+ cities across the country, provide clients with exceptional, specialized service offerings, with the added value of a national perspective and even global reach (thanks to affiliation with Baker Tilly International, the eighth largest global accounting network, with a presence in 147 countries).
Always growing, the network has had a consistent and strong presence in the Toronto-area market for the past 25 years, with previous firms in the region generating exponential revenue earnings. Clients trust that Collins Barrow firms are not only their collaborative, one-stop-shop for service excellence, but that they will receive personalized, partner attention.
"We are seeking innovative firms with a bold, entrepreneurial mindset and aggressive edge to join our expanding network," said Collins Barrow National chair, Douglas Kroetsch. "In Toronto, and other key markets across Canada, joining Collins Barrow will mitigate barriers to growth, offer an extensive network of shared resources (audit training, professional practice standards, referrals etc.), and provide a well-established national governance and marketing structure."
"The Collins Barrow competitive advantage makes us the true mid-market, Canadian alternative for audit, tax and advisory experts and a launch pad for success," he concluded.
