About BPM

Founded in 1986, BPM is one of the 50 largest public accounting and advisory firms in the country, as measured by annual revenues. It is also the fifth largest accounting firm in the Greater Bay Area and one of the top 10 largest firms in the Western U.S. With more than 500 professionals across California—as well as offices in India, Oregon, Hong Kong, and the Cayman Islands—BPM serves emerging, mid-cap, and closely-held businesses, as well as high-net-worth individuals in industries ranging from financial services, technology, life science, and consumer products to real estate, nonprofits, and wine and craft beverages. 

BPM has been recognized as a “Best Place to Work in the Bay Area” eight times over the past decade by the San Francisco Business Times and the Silicon Valley Business Journal, and was the only CPA firm included in the publications’ top 10 in the large company category in 2015 and 2016. In 2019, the firm received Inavero’s “Best of Accounting” award for client service excellence for the fourth consecutive year. In addition, BPM was named “2018 Innovative Firm of the Year” by LEA Global, the second largest international association of accounting firms in the world.
