Baden Gage & Schroeder, LLC of Fort Wayne has been named by INSIDE Public Accounting (IPA) as one of the 2019 “Best of the Best” accounting firms in the nation for the third consecutive year, the company announced.

The Best of the Best firms are 50 of the highest-performing public accounting firms in the country, according to a Sept. 13 statement from Baden. These firms are selected exclusively on their performance in specific areas of management, growth and strategic vision. Baden, 6920 Pointe Inverness Way, Suite 300, which was established in 1980, was given a special distinction this year as being named as one of the top five scoring firms in the U.S. Great Lakes Region.

“We were thrilled last year and the year before to receive this honor, but now to have it a third year in a row, makes it even more special,” said Christine Hootman, managing director, in the company statement. “I have always believed that we have the best team of accountants in the nation and this award reaffirms that belief.”
