BDO Admits 36 New Partners

BDO new partners

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.
