Founded in1969, Armanino is one of the 25 largest accounting firms in the U.S. by revenue. It’s also the largest accounting and business consulting firm headquartered in California. In 2018, the firm booked revenues of $268 million, an 8 percent increase versus 2017. Prior to that, in recent years, Armanino’s revenues had climbed by as much as 30 percent per year.
Armanino’s recent era of growth was ushered in by Andy Armanino in 2005 when he became managing partner. Armanino more than doubled the accounting firm's headcount during his tenure, and was included in Accounting Today’s “Top 100 Most Influential People in Accounting” list and the San Francisco Business Times’ “Most Admired CEOs” list. At the beginning of 2019, Armanino retired and was succeeded by his brother Matt Armanino, who is now the firm’s CEO and managing partner.
Given Armanino's proximity to Silicon Valley, it's no surprise that the firm's largest industry group is its technology practice. In fact, the firm's high-tech clients have included local heavy hitters like AutoDesk, Yahoo!, and Wildfire. Armanino's remaining industry groups are manufacturing and distribution, health care, retail, not-for-profit, professional services, private education, real estate, SEC and financial services. Over the years the firm has worked with some big names in California, including eBay, Electronic Arts, Brocade, The SF Symphony, SCPA, and Goodwill.
Today, Armanino has approximately 1,165 professionals. It operates out of several offices in the San Francisco Bay Area, and has additional offices in Los Angeles and Woodland Hills, Calif.; Naperville, Ill.; Dallas, Tex.; and Seattle, Wash.
