Anders Named a “Firm to Watch”

(Source: Press Release) ST. LOUIS, March 18, 2013 - Anders has been named to Accounting Today’s “Beyond the Top 100: Firms to Watch” list.

Daniel Hood, editor of the publication, said the Firms to Watch list includes “an impressive list of up and comers.”  Anders comes in at #13 in a total list of 35.
