Promotion Watch ’19: Crowe Adds 34 New Partners and Principals

It’s time to take the noise makers out of your desk drawers and blow on them furiously because there will be 34 brand-new partners and principals at Crowe once the clock strikes midnight on April 1, 2020.

The class of 2020 is fairly large by Crowe standards. It surpasses this year’s class of 24, the 10 in 2018, and the 25 in 2017.

In all, the new partners and principals for 2020 represent five practice areas in 15 offices.

Let’s take a closer look at the numbers:

  • 13: The number of new partners and principals in tax services, the most of any practice area, followed by nine in audit and assurance services and eight in consulting.
  • 10: The number of new partners and principals who are women, or 29% of the class.
  • 5: The number of new partners and principals who are either based in Chicago or South Bend, IN, the most of any office location, followed by four in New York.
  • 2: The number of new partners and principals who either have the first name of Michael or the first name of Kristin.
