Strategic Decision Leads to Record Growth

AURORA, IL--(Marketwire - September 16, 2010) -  James A. Sikich, CEO and Managing Partner of Sikich LLP (, a nationally recognized public accounting and business advisory firm, has been named as one of the "Top 100 Most Influential People in Accounting" by Accounting Today, a national accounting trade publication.

"I am thankful to be surrounded by an incredibly smart and determined team of professionals at our firm. The recent growth we have experienced stems back to a strategic decision to build a practice that breaks the mold of a traditional accounting firm," said Sikich. "Expanding our offering to include a full scope of consulting services was not an easy decision to make but one that clients have definitely embraced," he concluded.
