ATLANTA- For the 29th year in a row, leading accounting and advisory firm Mauldin & Jenkins is proud to share that it has been named one of Accounting Today’s Top 100 Firms for 2023. Coming in at number 73, the firm jumped four spots over last year’s ranking.

In addition to a Top 100 ranking, Mauldin & Jenkins was one of 12 Georgia firms to also be named one of Accounting Today’s Regional Leaders for 2023. The Southeast had the highest average firm growth rate for the year, increasing 8 percentage points over last year.

Multiple geographic and strategic service line acquisitions as well as increased efficiency due to new technologies are just a few of the contributing factors Managing Partner Hanson Borders credits to the firm’s significant growth over the past year.

“I am proud of the way our firm has responded to clients’ evolving needs,” said Borders. “Focusing on new avenues for growth both geographically and in industry specialization has allowed us to better align our services with our client’s values and financial goals.”

Innovations to traditional service areas are also responsible and reflect the industry’s overall transformation.

“Due to the vast number of technological advances that have emerged over the past several years, we have seen a shift in the way traditional services are performed,” shared Borders. “The industry’s expansion beyond conventional accounting needs and the adoption of new technology has provided us with opportunities to broaden the scope of our services and expertise, increase efficiency, and better serve the needs of our clients.”

Albany Accounting Firm Gives a Big Boost to Hunger Eradication Efforts

ALBANY, December 19, 2022- This month, the Albany office of Mauldin & Jenkins, LLC, provided over 200 meals worth of food that will support efforts to eradicate hunger in the local Albany community this December. The firm donated all of the canned goods and other foods collected during this food drive to Feeding the Valley Food Bank, which serves Dougherty and nearby Georgia counties.

Mauldin & Jenkins is a national CPA and business advisory firm with offices throughout the Southeast. The Albany office is just one of the Firm’s 14 locations, and each office supports a wide variety of community service and engagement activities.

James Langston, Community Service Chair of M&J’s Albany office, is used to high participation rates and enthusiasm for the firm’s numerous charitable initiatives and volunteer efforts. Even so, he was a bit surprised by the level of engagement he witnessed during the food drive. “The response and efforts we received from the Albany office were amazing,” Langston reports.

Feeding the Valley greatly appreciates the donation, as do those who will enjoy the meals. The canned goods M&J collected included lots of peanut butter and jelly; in a happy coincidence, a local church was having a peanut butter and jelly sandwich event on the night of the donation. Feeding the Valley told those who dropped off the donation that M&J’s contribution would almost — or entirely — cover the needs for that event.

“Dropping off the donations, and hearing that just our donation alone would supply over 200 meals to the local community was definitely something to be proud of,” says Langston. “It was a great reminder of how blessed most of us are — and more importantly, how important it is to share those blessings as much as we can with those in need.”

Headquartered in Columbus, GA, Feeding the Valley Food Bank is one of eight regional food banks in Georgia. The organization serves as a centralized source to collect, store and distribute a wide variety of donated foods to families and individuals who are experiencing food insecurity.
