This is the eighth consecutive year of growth for the firm under CEO Wayne Berson’s leadership.

“As the last few months have shown us, organizational resilience has proven invaluable as the global community continues to face extraordinary challenges. The unwavering commitment to excellence, stability and longevity from Wayne and his leadership team will continue to serve our people, our clients and our communities well,” said Kelly Johnson, chair of the board of directors of BDO USA. “Our world-class workforce, dedication to exceptional client service and purposeful innovation have been instrumental in our growth and provided a solid foundation, which is especially underscored during tumultuous times.”
