Crowe Horwath LLP Company Profile


New era 

With a history that dates back to 1942, Crowe Horwath began as a certified public accounting firm with only two full-time employees. Crowe established its consulting group in the 1960s, and today is one of the most respected and recognized firms of its kind. Touting itself as "The Unique Alternative to the Big Four," Crowe gives four reasons why its services are among the best: the higher level of service and value it brings to clients, the core competencies of its thought leaders, its innovative approach to client needs, and a high level of service commitment. 

In 1991, Crowe became a member of Horwath International, a worldwide organization of accounting and consulting firms. The affiliation increased Crowe's ability to serve clients with international needs. Formerly known as Crowe Chizek & Company, the firm changed its name in 2008 to Crowe Horwath to strengthen its alignment with Horwath International. In 2009, Horwath International changed its name to Crowe Horwath International. 

Crowe currently has approximately 3,000 employees serving out of 28 offices, mainly located in the Midwest, Southeast, and Northeast. The firm provides audit, performance, risk consulting and tax services to companies in numerous sectors, including construction, education, finance, food and agriculture, health care, manufacturing and distribution, not-for-profit, private equity, and state and local government. By revenue, Crowe is the eighth-largest accounting firm in the country, according to Accounting Today's 2014 Top 100 Accounting Firms rankings. The firm booked $665 million in revenue in its latest fiscal year.
