BDO Admits 30 New Partners

Effective July 1, 30 new partners will get a seat at BDO's adult table.

This class is the largest since we've been covering the firm's partner promotions. There were 24 in 2014, 16 in '13, 15 in '12, 13 in '11, and 5 in '10.

I count 7 women on this list and, oddly, everyone is listed as Assurance or Tax (except a lone soul in Marketing & Communication). No one seems to be in the Consulting and Business & Financial Advisory groups. That's a little curious.

No matter, I'm sure everyone is excited. Let's congratulate them with gusto. 

  • Deneen Akture (Chicago – National Marketing & Communications)
  • Rick Baab (Grand Rapids – Assurance)
  • Michael Becker (Long Island – National Assurance)
  • Joe Canataro (Philadelphia – Assurance)
  • Nathan Dick (Los Angeles – Assurance)
