EKS&H LLLP was named as a top three Firm of the Future in Intuit Inc.'s (Nasdaq: INTU) nationwide search for accounting firms that are using forward-thinking technologies to ensure their long-term success and reshape the way they meet the needs of their small business clients.
The search for the Firm of the Future contest received an overwhelming number of entries, showcasing the depth and progress of future-ready firms across the United States.
"We're pleased to award EKS&H LLLP second place in Intuit's search for the top 20 Firms of the Future in the United States," said Jim McGinnis, vice president, Intuit Small Business Group, Accountant Segment.

EKS&H showed what it truly means for a firm to evolve into one of the future."
The contest criteria, developed in collaboration with Darren Root, CEO of Rootworks, and author of The Intentional Accountant, was designed to celebrate those that have embraced the cloud and change.
Participants submitted videos that expressed why they deserved to be recognized as a Firm of the Future, including highlighting the firm's vision, leadership style, brand, and how they've built a firm to capture ideal workdays.
A panel of qualified judges, including Jim McGinnis, Darren Root and Intuit Accountant Segment senior leaders, selected the top 20 Firms of the Future who best embody the attributes of Firms of the Future. Originality and creativity of a participant's video was also considered.
A representative from each Firm of the Future received an all-expense paid trip to Intuit's second annual QuickBooks Connect event in San Jose, Calif., where they were connected to, educated and inspired by a compelling speaker lineup with thousands of business owners, entrepreneurs, accountants and developers in attendance.
