NEW PRACTICE BRINGS 225 PROFESSIONALS AND STAFF IN VIRGINIA, MARYLAND AND FLORIDA TO BDO

Chicago, IL – BDO USA, LLP, one of the nation’s leading professional service organizations, today announced an expansion of its east coast presence through the addition of more than 200 partners and staff from Argy, Wiltse & Robinson, P.C.

“I want to welcome Paul and all of the Argy partners and staff to the BDO family.

This practice will serve as BDO’s National Center of Excellence for Government Contracting as we bring their best practices to appropriate markets around the country. Argy also enjoys considerable experience in the nonprofit and technology industries, as well as private client services that will add to our existing strengths.”

Argy has been recognized by numerous industry publications for its rapid growth and accomplishments. It has been named one of the “Top 100 firms” in the nation by both Accounting Today and Inside Public Accounting for the past seven years, climbing to the 57th ranking after just 20 years. Argy has also been named one of the “Best of the Best” managed firms by Inside Public Accounting for eight consecutive years and earned many other honors, including “Best Places to Work” and “Fastest Growing” from Accounting Today, Washington Business Journal and South Florida Business Journal.

“We are all very excited to be joining BDO USA, which provides us with a national and international platform for serving our clients, while maintaining a practice philosophy very compatible to our own. BDO’s reputation as a favorable workplace will fit well with our focus on work/life balance and strategy for attracting and retaining the best and brightest professionals,” said Paul Argy, President & CEO of Argy. “Combining with BDO will enable us to offer our clients a wider array of services, global geographic coverage, extensive industry experience and additional resources.”
