The Purple Rose of Chicago turned in a scorecard of $1.274 billion in revenue, up 5 percent, for fiscal 2013. And Stephen Chipman, for one, thinks that's a solid effort:
"Attaining record revenues in a still tepid economic environment is a testament to our long-term strategy of focusing on dynamic, mid-sized clients that are poised for growth," said Stephen Chipman, chief executive officer of Grant Thornton LLP. "We continue to invest in talent who make a marked difference in the quality and breadth and depth of our services to clients in our chosen markets."
Not only that but the firm "resolved several long-standing legal matters during the year." It always feels good to scratch something off the to-do list.
