This is LBMC
LBMC is the largest professional service solutions provider based in Tennessee, serving approximately 10,000 clients with diverse needs across a spectrum of industries; however, we didn’t start that way.
LBMC was founded in 1984 as a traditional accounting firm with a simple mission: to serve a great group of clients and enjoy doing it. More than 30 years later, loving what we do and who we do it for has taken us a long way. LBMC has been named a top 50 firm in the country.
Today, we’ve become industry leaders in financial, human resources, technology, information security, and wealth advisory services backed by more than 600 employees – not because a business plan told us to be, but because we’re entrepreneurs and our clients asked us to be.
As illustrated by our “Best Places to Work” recognition, LBMC is committed to attracting and retaining the nation’s best talent, positioning ourselves to best serve clients with the industry’s brightest minds.
What is LBMC?
Whether you need to supplement or outsource a single function, need an ally you can trust for your taxes, or are in the market for a comprehensive business solutions partner, LBMC is what your business needs.
LBMC Named a 2023 Forbes America’s Best Tax and Accounting Firm in the Nation
(February 13, 2023) – LBMC is pleased to announce that it has been named a 2023 Forbes America’s Best Tax and Accounting Firm. This is the third year in a row for LBMC to be recognized on Forbes’ prestigious list, again achieving placement as both a top Tax and Accounting firm in the U.S.
This esteemed award is presented by Forbes and Statista Inc., the world’s leading statistics portal and industry ranking provider. Forbes and Statista created the award list through an independent survey, and winners were based on the number of recommendations received from participants (peers and clients) and additional company data. LBMC was one of the few elite firms named to both lists, out of approximately 30,000 total participants and 4,500 final recommendations.
“We are honored to be recognized by Forbes as one of the best tax and accounting firms in the nation again this year,” said Jeff Drummonds, LBMC’s CEO. “We appreciate the recommendations from our clients and peers reaffirming our culture of providing outstanding service and expertise. Our clients need trusted advisors who can provide unique solutions to help them grow, and we are grateful for the confidence they place in us.”
LBMC Named to Inc. Best in Business List
(January 31, 2023) – LBMC has been named to the newly released Inc. 2022 Best in Business list in the Management Consulting category for the Community Development Area of Impact. Now in its third year, Inc.’s Best in Business Awards honor companies that have made an extraordinary impact in their fields and on society.
The list, which can be found in the Winter issue of Inc. magazine, recognizes the most dynamic companies that have had an outstanding influence on their communities, their industries, the environment, or society as a whole. LBMC was selected from a highly competitive pool of thousands of applicants and named one of five in the community development area of impact.
“We are honored to be recognized as an Inc. Best in Business in the Community Development area of impact,” said Jeff Drummonds, LBMC’s CEO. “We owe this outstanding distinction to our team members, who go above and beyond to give back to our clients, peers, and communities year in and year out. I am proud to be part of a firm whose culture is fundamentally tied to empowering and uplifting the communities where we work, live and serve. Congratulations to our team members for this Inc. magazine recognition.”
“Inc. magazine is dedicated to showcasing America’s most dynamic businesses and the great things they do. The Best in Business awards shine a light on those that have gone above and beyond their original mission to make a social, environmental or economic impact, benefiting those around them,” said Scott Omelianuk, editor-in-chief of Inc.
Rather than relying on quantitative criteria tied to sales or funding, Inc.’s editors reviewed the companies’ achievements over the past year and noted how they made a positive difference in the world. They then selected honorees in 55 different categories – from advertising to sustainability to retail, and more – and in age-based, revenue-based, size-based, and impact-based categories. The applicant pool was extremely competitive – a huge success for the 241 honored in the list’s third year. Honorees for gold, silver, bronze, and general excellence across industries and categories are featured online at inc.com/best-in-business.
