LBMC, one of the Southeast’s largest accounting and business consulting firms, proudly announces that David Morgan CPA/PFS and Mike Cain, CPA/PFS, were inducted into The Advisory Board’s Hall of Fame at the 2020 Winning is Everything Conference.

Since co-founding LBMC in 1984, Morgan and Cain have overseen more than three decades of growth and success for the company and its clients. Morgan and Cain currently serve as Chairman and President of LBMC Financial Services, respectively, where they provide strategic oversight of LBMC non-traditional portfolio companies.

“David and Mike had a vision from day one to be something more than just an accounting firm,” stated event co-organizer Allan Koltin, Koltin Consulting Group, “They were among the great innovators and leaders of our time. They created an advisory and consulting firm that dared to help clients grow their business and improve their profits. The door opener to this journey was through audit and tax. Today, LBMC is the kind of firm that everyone points to and wants to be like. All that said, they always cared about their people and lived their values every day of the journey.”

“Mike and David grew one of the most prestigious and admired firms in the country. They were trail blazers in the strategy and execution of their broad service model. They were also stewards of their profession, involved at many levels with the AICPA, Leading Edge Alliance, and the Tennessee Society of CPAs,” added event co-organizer Gary Shamis, Winding River Consulting.

“We are honored to receive this award from our friends and colleagues with whom we have had the good fortune to work during much of our careers. We have been very privileged to be part of a firm at the right time, right place, and with the right people. As we navigate these unprecedented times resulting from Coronavirus pandemic, it’s even more important that we continue to help our clients overcome challenges and serve as their advisors in the weeks and months to come,” said Morgan and Cain in a joint statement.

The Advisory Board, a future-focused consulting firm dedicated to sharing information, ideas, and insight, created the Winning is Everything conference in 2002. Since then, the conference has evolved to meet the needs of top accounting leaders, enhancing the knowledge of firms and increasing the value provided to clients. Each year, a select number of industry stars are inducted into the Board’s Hall of Fame.
