A-LIGN Managing Partner, Scott Price, has been included in Accounting Today’s Class of 2016 Managing Partner Elite list. The Managing Partner Elite program highlights the leaders of accounting firms who stand out from their peers due to their ability to guide their firms through innovation, development of strong culture and continued focus on growth.
Price has provided clients with security, assurance and compliance solutions for nearly 20 years, and has served as the Managing Partner of A-LIGN for four years. Prior to founding A-LIGN in 2009, Scott served as the co-founder and President of SAS 70 Solutions, the first ever CPA firm to specialize in SAS 70 audits. Today, there are less than five firms that are able to provide the suite of services that A-LIGN is able to offer as a CPA firm, Qualified Security Assessor Company (QSAC), accredited ISO 27001 certification body, and accredited FedRAMP 3PAO.
After starting from a single office in Tampa, Florida, A-LIGN has expanded its office locations to New York, Georgia, California, Illinois, Texas, and Utah. With a client and employee base spread all over the world, Price has spearheaded the use of technology in order to optimize the firm’s remote workforce – allowing A-LIGN to service clients internationally.
Price has led the firm through its strategic plan, focusing on developing a people-focused culture as a mechanism for growth and excellence within the firm. This plan includes A-LIGN’s commitment to the development of its people through training, certification opportunities, advancement based on merit instead of tenure and a framework of diversity for the firm’s culture.
“I am truly honored to have been acknowledged by Accounting Today. I think that this selection is truly a reflection on what we have been able to accomplish as a team at A-LIGN. Our biggest differentiator is the quality of the people within our organization,” said Scott Price. “We truly believe in being ‘All In’ for our clients, for the work that we complete, and for each other. Building a culture that we are proud of within the firm is one of the biggest achievements in my time as the Managing Partner, and I wouldn’t have been able to earn the title of Managing Partner Elite without the team that we’ve built.”
