Who We Are

Kaufman Rossin is one of the Top 100 firms in the U.S.

Almost 60 years ago, two friends started a CPA firm.

From the beginning, Jim Kaufman and Jay Rossin envisioned a firm that was truly different from the others—a people business that focused on numbers. Creating a place they loved to work laid the foundation for the firm we are today. With a focus on joy at work, they created a company culture that’s dynamic, innovative and fun. And while most people don’t associate joy with an accounting firm, we do. It’s why our employees choose to be here—and stay here. And why our clients get the best possible service.

A client experience based on joy.

We provide professional services to businesses and their leaders, offering experienced guidance and strategic planning at every stage of business growth—from start-up to succession. We personally serve entrepreneurial, public, non-profit and individual clients.

We have over 400 employees providing traditional accounting, audit and tax services, and business, risk and forensic advisory services. But more than that, we’re focused on bringing our clients joy—minimizing stress, opening up new possibilities, and making life sweeter.

So many accounting industry awards, we’re blushing.

We’re ranked as one of the top 100 accounting firms in the country. We’ve also 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. And we’re especially proud of our 2021 Best of Accounting® Award for superior client service, because it’s based on ratings provided by over 1,000 of our clients.

Visionary leadership with values that endure.

Today Kaufman Rossin is led by Chief Executive Officer Blain Heckaman, Chairman Jim Kaufman, and Chief Operating Officer Gerald Michelson. And while much has changed over the past 60 years, much has remained the same.  We’ve retained our original character—same management vision, same work culture and same unique DNA. And we’ve never had to dilute our vision or compromise our commitments.

Here’s what we stand for:

  • 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.
  • Corporate 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 employee engagement and sharing good times with co-workers is just as important. Joyful, dedicated employees are the reason we 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.
