Wayne Berson is letting 48 lucky guys and gals join the club, in what is one of the largest new partner classes in BDO USA’s history.
“We are proud to welcome the largest class of partners at BDO in more than 20 years,” said Wayne Berson, CEO of BDO USA. “Each of our new partners has directly contributed to the growth and success of our firm, exceling in their practice and driving innovative solutions to the opportunities and issues our clients face. They have demonstrated an impressive ability to lead and build relationships with clients and people at all levels within the firm.”
