Baker Newman Noyes must have been a good little accounting firm this year because instead of candy canes, Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup Miniatures, or WWE wrestling action figures in its stocking, Santa got the firm a new principal for its audit practice from EY.
As a principal in the audit practice, Drew Nagus helps clients strategically navigate complex accounting, external reporting, and corporate accounting matters to support better decision-making. Prior to joining BNN, Drew worked in public accounting at a Big 4 firm in Massachusetts. He has experience with a variety of large-scale projects related to adopting the new revenue recognition and lease standards, ASC 606/IFRS 15 and ASC 842/IFRS 16 respectively; technical accounting support including, but not limited to, business combinations, carve-out financial statements, shared-based compensation, complex debt, and equity instruments; acting as a technical accounting subject matter resource for buy and sell side due diligence teams; External Financial Reporting (SEC & US GAAP); and transitioning to public company status.
Nagus will be based in BBN’s newest office in Woburn, MA, which opens next month.
He worked at EY for four years, according to his LinkedIn profile, as a senior manager in the firm’s Financial Accounting Advisory Services practice. Before joining EY in 2014, he was a director in the audit practice of Grant Thornton.
Nagus wasn’t the only present BBN’s new Woburn office got recently. Jim Guarino was added as a managing director and Certified Financial Planner in the tax practice, and Jeff Rogers and Chris Giallongo were recently added as senior managers in the tax practice.
Rogers and Giallongo bolted BDO USA to join BBN.
