Crowe Admits 24 New Partners and Principals

No, the amount of new partners and principals elected by Crowe LLP wasn’t 26—the number worn by former Nashville Predators rugged left winger Phil Crowe. But the firm will be giving 24 professionals a seat at the big kids’ table come April 1, 2019.

The 2018 new partner and principal class at the top 10 accounting firm, which dropped the “Horvath” from its name last May, is bigger than the 10 in last year’s class, but smaller than the 25 admitted in 2016.

I count 10 women on this year’s list (42%), compared to three women in 2017’s class of 10 (30%).

Eight of the new partners and principals work in audit services, two in advisory services, three in performance consulting, two in risk consulting, eight in tax services, and one in firm risk management.

Here’s the full list of newly minted Crowe partners and principals:

  • Heather Bossenga, Audit Services, Oak Brook, Ill.
  • Clint Brasier, Tax Services, Nashville, Tenn.
  • Tracey Coyne, Performance Consulting, Chicago
  • Jill Czerwinski, Risk Consulting, Oak Brook, Ill.
  • Erika Del Giudice, Audit Services, Chicago
  • Mike Del Giudice, Risk Consulting, Chicago
  • Katie Glaudel, Audit Services, Oak Brook, Ill.
  • Gina Green, Audit Services, Dallas
  • Brian Kerby, Advisory Services, Chicago
  • Jon Klunk, Tax Services, Oak Brook, Ill.
  • Wil Knibloe, Advisory Services, Off-site
  • Brittney Kocaj, Tax Services, Fort Lauderdale, Fla.
  • Bob Lavoy, Performance Consulting, Chicago
  • Ben Matherly, Tax Services, Indianapolis
  • Brian Myers, Tax Services, Indianapolis
  • Sindy Nicholson, Audit Services, Denver
  • JooHee Ohk, Tax Services, Oak Brook, Ill.
  • Jeff Palgon, Audit Services, Atlanta
  • Esteban Salinas, Performance Consulting, Sacramento, Calif.

  • Mark Shannon, Firm Risk Management, Off-site
  • Christine Smith, Tax Services, Oak Brook, Ill,
  • Aazan St. Rose, Audit Services, Miami
  • Travis Ward, Tax Services, Grand Rapids, Mich.

Big congrats to this “murder of Crowes.” (That does sound horrible, doesn’t it?)
