Chicago, IL – BDO USA, LLP, a leading professional services firm, is proud to announce further firm growth in the Greater Washington D.C. area with the opening of a new office in the district, as well as an expanded office in McLean, VA.
BDO’s new Washington D.C. office is located at 799 9th Street, N.W., Suite 710, and is now home to a large and growing BDO Consulting presence. As part of this growth, BDO Consulting has recently added senior professionals and resources in its Global Forensics and Forensic Technology Services practices to better serve clients' investigation and litigation needs in the market.
The new Greater Washington D.C. office in McLean, VA brings together professionals in BDO’s former Bethesda office with professionals based in McLean in a brand new location: 8401 Greensboro Drive, Suite 800. This combined office will leverage its expanded presence and resources to serve clients across all industries, in addition to being the home base of BDO’s Institute for Nonprofit ExcellenceTM and Center of Excellence for Government Contracting. The Greater Washington D.C. office is also the site of a new forensics lab. The secure facility will enhance BDO's digital forensics and data analytics capabilities and further enable the firm to efficiently and effectively service local clients’ investigative and litigation needs.
“Our focus in the Greater Washington D.C. area reflects the strategic investment in key markets and practices that has helped BDO grow faster than any other national accounting firm over the past three years,” said Wayne Berson, CEO of BDO USA, LLP. “Our expanded footprint signifies our dedication to serving our clients in the region, as well as our commitment to adapting to new workplace needs to attract and retain top talent.”
BDO USA has grown from $618 million in revenue in 2012 to $1.05 billion in 2015. During that time, the firm has increased total staff size by more than 2,000 professionals, and currently, BDO has over 400 professionals in the Greater Washington D.C. area. Despite the increase in business and professionals, BDO has been able to reduce its physical footprint in existing markets through the rollout of its Exceptional Workplace strategy.
Exceptional Workplace is a flexible strategy that enables a collaborative work environment and serves different work styles across BDO practice groups and generations. Open, flexible workspace connects teams and individuals to drive knowledge sharing, learning and mentoring. 
In addition to encouraging teamwork and maximizing productivity, the strategy has paid dividends in the recruitment and retention of staff.
The new Washington D.C. and combined Greater Washington D.C. offices celebrated the firm’s commitment to the area with a day of community service on September 18th.  BDO also will host celebratory open houses with clients and colleagues at the beginning of October.
