Promotion Watch ’21: BDO USA Admits 69 Lucky Boys and Girls to Partnership

The number of new partners in the fiscal year 2022 class at BDO USA would make Bill and Ted snicker.

For some reason, we didn’t post anything last year about the FY 2021 new partners at BDO. I blame the pandemic, which is what I blame most things on these days. But this latest class of 69 Wayne Berson devotees has to be one of the largest in the firm’s history:

2021: 692020: ??2019: 482018: 372017: 362016: 392015: 302014: 242013: 162012: 152011: 132010: 5

Here’s a closer look at the class of FY 2022 by the numbers:

27: The number of new partners in assurance, the most of any service line, followed by 19 in tax and 10 in advisory.20: The number of new partners who are women, or 29% of the class.8: The number of new partners in New York City, the most of any location, followed by five in both Atlanta and Houston, and four in Dallas, Detroit, San Francisco, and Washington, DC.

BDO took a page from PwC’s book by doing short profiles for each new partner accompanied by their headshot. You can find out fun facts about many of the new partners, like Clint Dobson who said: “A retired tax partner was the third wheel on my wife and I’s first date.” Oof.

And some were asked why they chose a career in professional services, which Lauren DeBarr answered: “ I EXCEL’d in my accounting classes!”
