TPTB at DHG announced last week the top 20 firm’s newest class of six partners and two principals. The class of 2020 is a bit larger than the seven who earned their stripes last year but smaller than the 13 new partners and principals in 2018, 11 in 2017, nine in 2016, 16 in 2015, and 12 in […]

Marcum Chairman and CEO (and Going Concern’s biggest fan, so we’re told) Jeffrey Weiner deified 20 new partners on Sept. 1.

A batch of 25 new Plante Moran partners has been released into the wild, and I’ll go out on a limb and say it’s thee biggest class of new partners in the firm’s history. It’s definitely the largest class since 2015: 2020: 25 2019: 16 2018: 15 2017: 21 2016: 13 2015: 16 Here are […]

Promotion Watch ’20: Wipfli Adds Nine to the Partnership, Three New Principals

April was a rough month for the public accounting profession as a whole in the U.S. Because of the economic uncertainty caused by the Rona, a whole slew of PA firms pushed the go button on austerity measures, such as layoffs, furloughs, and pay cuts. And Milwaukee-based Wipfli was no exception. But we won’t get […]

The love child of J.H. Cohn and Reznick Group celebrated its recently anointed partner class for 2020 earlier this month. But it’s nowhere near the size of last year’s class of 23 new partners. Maybe CohnReznick only added 12 people to the partnership this year so there wouldn’t be as many partners for Mazars USA […]
