• BDO Admits 36 New Partners

    By | July 11, 2017

    Congratulations to the 36 very good boys and girls who can count themselves among the flock of BDO’s chosen ones. Okay, maybe that’s a touch extravagant for a BDO partner, but that does not diminish the achievement.

    This year’s class is a smidgen smaller compared to last year’s 39, but it’s still a large class since Going Concern’s been covering the promotions. There were 30 new partners in 2015, 24 in 2014, 16 in ’13, 15 in ’12, 13 in ’11, and 5 in ’10.

    There are 19 assurance partners, 12 tax, two advisory and three in the national office. I count 11 women in this class, just under a third of the total. Here’s the list:

    • Jason Aldridge  (Washington DC – Assurance)
    • Brooke Anderson (Pittsburgh – Tax)
    • John Barry (Orange County – Assurance)
    • Brad Bird (Chicago – National Assurance)
    • Danny Castro (Fort Lauderdale – Tax)
    • Craig Christie (Philadelphia – IS Assurance)
    • Jason Cuda (Atlanta – Assurance)
    • Anthony Diianni (Philadelphia – Assurance)
    • Chad Estes (Anchorage – Tax)
    • Heidi Franklin (Washington DC – Assurance)
    • Ryan Hecht (Columbus – Assurance)
    • Alex Iacobelli (Los Angeles – Assurance)
    • Carlye Klimek (Grand Rapids – Tax)
    • Lee Klumpp (Washington DC – National Assurance)
    • Jin Koo (Dallas – National Assurance)
    • Ritesh Lall (New York – Assurance)
    • Dennis Lam (Los Angeles – Assurance)
    • Tracy Lewis (Richmond – Assurance)
    • David McClain (Akron – Tax)
    • Christopher Mueller (Milwaukee – Tax)
    • Steve O’Donnell (Spokane – Assurance)
    • Nicole Pak (Raleigh – Assurance)
    • Jim Passaro (Philadelphia – Tax)
    • Kevin Patterson (Grand Rapids – Assurance)
    • Chad Paul (Milwaukee – Tax)
    • Ann Pena (San Antonio – Tax)
    • Jacob Pensler (Charlotte – Tax)
    • Bernadette Pieters-Harilal (New York – Human Resources)
    • Karen Schuler (Washington DC – Advisory)
    • Natallia Shapel (New York – National Tax)
    • David Stasiewicz (Chicago – Corporate Planning & Development)
    • Alison Torres (Washington DC – Transaction Advisory Services)
    • Brian Vigneault (Boston – Tax)
    • Reid Wade (Houston – Assurance)
    • Andrea Wilson (Washington DC – Industry Services)
    • Waylon Wood (Houston Assurance)

    Way to go, everyone. It would be fitting if they all took a pie to the face, wouldn’t it? I think we can all agree that that should be the new BDO partner initiation.
