As BDO prepares for a Jack Weisbaum-less existence, there are some final pieces that need put in place. With Wayne Berson becoming CEO, his position as "presiding board member" was up for grabs and Matthew Becker grabbed. In addition to Mr. Becker, Scott Guertin (Boston/Tax) and Joe Johnson (Orange County/Assurance) will join the board for three-year terms. Current board member Wendy Hambleton has been elected to serve another three-year term.
Mr. Becker is the firm's tax leader of the Central Region and, according to the firm's press release, "has assisted clients in developing efficient tax structures domestically and worldwide and has vast experience with the regulatory compliance requirements associated with such structures." That could have been code for "wolf pack" at one time, but I'm guessing that nickname has since been discouraged within the firm.
After the big regional shakeup we reported on back in June, it looks like the starting team is in place for post-Jacky Boy world. Hope everyone got what they wanted.
