Atlanta Business Chronicle names Dan Erling, "Most Admired CEO"


In recognition of CEOs who define leadership in Atlanta, Dan Erling, Accountants One CEO and President, was named as a Most Admired CEO by the Atlanta Business Chronicle. Erling is being recognized in the accounting category during the 2021 event that takes place on August 19th.

This award honors individuals who have demonstrated a strong record of innovation, outstanding financial performance, a commitment to diversity in the workplace, and have made significant contributions to the metro community.

With a combination of belt-tightening initiatives, streamlining processes, upgrading technology, strategic hiring, and an overall vision of growth, Accountants One is poised for a great future.

With the exception of the pandemic year, Accountants One has grown 21% annually over the past five years.

"For business leaders, the pandemic year demanded strategic adjustments and real humanity and Dan shows it," said Tom Kapish, Accountants One COO. "Dan demonstrates empathy and compassion while being 100% transparent, which our team really values, especially in this unconventional time."

The virtual world created challenges around hiring and retaining culture. Understanding that skilled and ethical knowledge workers are the greatest asset to any organization, Dan prioritized maintaining and enhancing culture at Accountants One. From virtual contests and team building to diversity training for our team, Dan ensured that the team thrived and remained deeply connected.

Dan was also recognized as a Leader in Corporate Citizenship by the Atlanta Business Chronicle in 2021 for the inspiring work he is doing within the Atlanta community.  Even as the pandemic took a stronghold, Dan continued supporting Junior Achievement of Georgia by pivoting to a Virtual South's Funniest Accountant. This long-standing Atlanta event is popular in the Atlanta Accounting and Finance community and continues to raise money for JA of Georgia.

“I am incredibly humbled to be considered one of the most admired CEOs,” says Erling. “I have a huge amount of gratitude to my Accountants One family. So incredibly proud that we, as a team, continue to navigate the market with the utmost integrity. Serious gratitude to the team for helping to carry us through 2020 and the first half of the year. Gratitude!”
