PYA Repeats Recognition as One of the Region’s Top Workplaces

For a fourth year, PYA, a national leading certified public accounting and professional services firm, has been named a “Top Workplace” by the Knoxville News Sentinel. In the Knoxville area, PYA was 1 of only 18 companies in its class that qualified for a Top Workplaces honor and was the only CPA/Consulting Firm, as well as the only professional services firm in its business category. In addition to this recognition, PYA President and CEO Marty Brown received a special award for leadership, based on employees’ confidence in the leader of the company.

The Top Workplaces award is based solely on employee feedback gathered through an anonymous third-party survey that measures several aspects of workplace culture, including alignment, execution, and connection.

“The culture at PYA is a reflection of the commitment of our colleagues—to our clients, to an end goal of helpfulness, and to each other. We have our teammates to thank for embodying that culture and nominating the firm for this honor,” said Brown. “I am particularly honored that PYA has been recognized for its leadership in the community of Knoxville, where our home office is located.”

PYA Principal and CFO David McMillan added, “A strong culture starts with leadership. PYA is very fortunate to have Marty Brown as the standard-bearer for our firm’s culture. As our employees’ feedback confirms, Marty’s insight, passion, and collaborative spirit embody our firm’s values and instill confidence within the entire PYA team.”

In addition to this latest recognition, PYA was recently named one of America’s Best Tax and Accounting Firms of 2022 in the Forbes annual list. PYA consistently is ranked among the Top 20 healthcare consulting firms in the U.S. by Modern Healthcare. PYA is also ranked by INSIDE Public Accounting as one of the Top 100 largest accounting firms in the U.S. and by Accounting Today as a Top 100 Firm in the U.S., as well as a Top 10 regional leader in the Southeast. The firm also has the highest percentage of consulting/business advisory revenues of all the CPA firms in the country. And among firms with revenues of $100 million or less, PYA’s consulting/business advisory services revenues lead the nation. In 2017, PYA was recognized by Accounting Today in the article “Inside the Top 100—Profiles of Four of the Most Successful Firms in the Profession.” PYA has also been ranked 3rd highest percentage female ownership among the Top 100 Firms by INSIDE Public Accounting.
