MBAF is ranked nationally as a Top 40 accounting and advisory firm and is the largest Florida-based firm in the state. Founded in 1969, it celebrates over 50 years of professional success and community commitment, and now boasts over 650 employees serving clients in all 50 states and more than 55 countries.


Since Tony Argiz became MBAF’s chairman and CEO in 1997, the firm has received 21 nods from INSIDE Public Accounting as a top 50 best-managed firm, and Accounting Today has recognized MBAF as one of the 40 best accounting and advisory firms in the country. Its survival of the tides of time is a testament to the firm’s ongoing innovation.

“For half a century, MBAF has lived through so many changes, including technology booms, economy busts, new administrations and regulations, and much more,” says Argiz. “We have survived by staying true to our founding principles while evolving with the times.”




MBAF’s principles are building long-lasting, trusting relationships with clients, taking their mission on as the firm’s own; treating all employees with respect, trust, and fairness, in the knowledge that the success of the firm depends on the strength of its team; and in creating a company culture based on diversity, entrepreneurial spirit, and a commitment to the community.

MBAF’s full suite of services is carried out with these principles in mind, and the firm attributes its success to its employees’ hard work and talent.

By focusing on cultivating the best workplace culture possible—a success recognized by both the South Florida Business Journal for three consecutive years (“Best Places to Work” finalist) and by Accounting Today for two (“Best Accounting Firm to Work For”)—MBAF ensures that its employees are as satisfied as its clients.

A few of the many benefits employees are provided include MBAF University, which has a broad curriculum focused on developing team members across all practice areas from new hire to partner level. Employees are also invited to take advantage of the firm’s wellness offerings like massage days, yoga, and rooftop fitness classes.


The firm’s foundations are also built upon the success of the many communities it calls home, and so MBAF gives back to the local nonprofit organizations and educational institutions that are in turn making the world a better place. MBAF is the seventh-largest corporate philanthropist in South Florida, where it supports over 100 charities.

MBAF encourages its employees to volunteer because philanthropy and the act of giving can have a life-changing effect on those employees and the world around them. MBAF’s commitment to service extends beyond the community, to its employee-driven culture, role as an industry leader, client relationships and everything in between. Service is MBAF’s corporate philosophy, it is a purpose that guides the firm in everything it does and will guide it for 50 years to come.
