Who We Are
Kaufman Rossin is one of the Top 100 firms in the U.S.
Kaufman Rossin provides professional services to businesses and their leaders, from inception to succession. Our rich heritage is grounded in integrity, people-first culture and technical excellence.
The firm was founded in 1962 to serve the needs of Florida’s businesses and has since grown to serve clients in dozens of countries. Jim Kaufman and Jay Rossin envisioned a firm that was truly different from the others – a people business that focused on numbers. It’s simple: we focus on our employees. This ensures that our clients will get the best possible service, which means success for our business.
Creating a work environment that was dynamic, innovative and fun laid the foundation for a culture that has propelled Kaufman Rossin to its current status as one of the top accounting firms in the country. In addition, we’ve been named the #1 Accounting Firm to Work For in the entire country by Accounting Today and one of the Best Places to Work in South Florida by the South Florida Business Journal for many years.
Today Kaufman Rossin is led by Chief Executive Officer Blain Heckaman, Chairman Jim Kaufman, and Chief Operating Officer Gerald Michelson. The firm has nearly 400 employees providing traditional accounting, audit and tax services, and business, risk and forensic advisory services. And we’ve grown organically. We’ve never had to dilute our vision or compromise our commitments.
We’ve retained our original character – same management vision, same culture and same unique DNA.
Our philosophy is to provide knowledge and expertise – with unsurpassed dedication and sensitivity. We provide professional services to businesses and their leaders, offering experienced guidance at every stage of business growth. We personally serve entrepreneurial, public, non-profit and individual clients. Our professional team has developed a reputation for the highest quality service and stable personnel, which is unique in today’s public accounting profession.
Our Core Values
- Integrity is the foundation of our practice. We believe integrity is what makes great professionals, and we don’t take this lightly. At Kaufman Rossin, everything we put our name on is a reflection of our integrity.
- Fairness is the key to the way we treat our people. We believe that treating people fairly does not mean treating everyone the same. It means taking the time to understand each employee’s specific situation and needs, and giving each person an equal chance to succeed.
- Social responsibility takes our caring outside the firm. We believe it’s our individual and collective responsibility to care about our communities. Our community involvement includes firm investment and individual commitments of time and energy by employees at every level, plus group activities such as our annual United Way fundraiser and the Corporate Run.
- Joy at work brings it all together. Yes, we work hard on every client’s engagement. But we also appreciate our co-workers, enjoy our facilities and share good times. Our sports teams win consistently; our on-site gym, sauna, massage room and yoga classes keep us fit in body and mind. And no one can top our parties! Joyful, dedicated employees are the reason we can provide the best client service in the business.
Kaufman Rossin is a member of the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants’ Center for Audit Quality and is registered with and subject to inspection by the Public Company Accounting Oversight Board.
