(UPDATE 2) Promotion Watch ’12: PwC Admitting 165 New Partners

After getting a tip, we've confirmed with a source inside the firm that PwC made 165 employees' day on Friday. This year's class has 29 more than 2011, and is nearly double of 2010's class.

Right now, we don't have a breakdown between men and women or by practice, but rumor has it that there's an email from Senior Partner Bob Moritz floating around somewhere, so if you come across it, you know what to do. We'll keep you updated as we learn more.

UPDATE – June 7th:
We'll keep a running tab here of the partners as we learn their names. If your office has made an announcement, send the info our way

NashvilleJonathan Flack, audit; Kelly Plummer, audit.
Atlanta – Amanda Foster, audit (strange because her LinkedIn profile says advisory); Pieter Penning, advisory.

UPDATE 2 – June 7th:
Finally a few people quit assuming we had the email from BoMo and sent us all the names. Thanks to our tipsters for pulling the trigger.

Anyone with an asterik is a principal.

A quick rundown:
Business Group: 67 assurance; 51 tax; 47 advisory

Cities: NYC 30; Boston 16; San Jose 11; Chicago 10; Florham Park 9; McLean 8; Houston 7; Philly 7; Dallas 6; San Francisco 5; Phoenix 4; Los Angeles 3; DC 3; St. Louis 3; Detroit 3; Minneapolis 3; Miami 2; Denver 2; Atlanta 2; Nashville 2; Stamford 2; Bangalore, India 2; Kansas City 2; Tokyo 2; Orange County 1; Charlotte 1; Fayetteville 1; Salt Lake City 1; Lima, Peru 1; Pittsburgh 1; Sacramento 1; Hartford 1; Rosario, Argentina 1; Portland 1; Santo Domingo, PR 1; Columbus 1; Cincinnati 1. – I think I'm off one, but I'll be damned if I can find it. 

Men 123; Women 41 – I did my best on the gender-neutral names. For toss-ups I defaulted to male because, well, it's public accounting.

Congrats to all the new partners and principals!

Grant Thornton and the Antichrist

al pacino_devil.jpgIt’s rather mysterious that the New York office of Grant Thornton is located at 666 Third Ave. As I’m sure our more pious readers know, the significance of the 666 is commonly known as “The Number of the Beast“. We won’t get into any more specifics than that other than to mention that it is a pretty creepy-ass looking number.
Is G to the T run by a secret group of Al Pacino-esque figures that are working against the forces of good?
Maybe not but the otherwise boring-assness of that particular lobby is def working too hard to not be noticed…
