DO USA, LLP, one of the nation’s leading accounting and advisory firms, newly declared revenue of $1.640 billion – representing a year-over-year incline of 11.80 percent – for the financial year finished June 30, 2k19. This is the seventh successive year of growth for the firm under Wayne Berson’s leadership. BDO partners re-elected Berson for a third term as chief executive officer, a position he will hold through June 30, 2024.
Since becoming CEO in 2012, Berson and his leadership team have guided BDO from annual revenues of $618.00M to $1.640 billion by expanding service offerings, implementing a robust growth strategy and opening offices in an additional 24 cities. BDO’s record growth in FY19 was achieved across all business lines, most notably from advisory, which saw revenue growth of nearly 40.00 percent, while tax (+8.40 percent) and assurance (+4.30 percent) also achieved strong development.
“We’ve built a strong reputation for consistently delivering innovative, high-caliber solutions for our clients with exceptionally talented people,” said Wayne Berson, CEO of BDO USA. “We’re committed to investing in our infrastructure, services and people to foster continued success and drive growth across all our business lines, which will keep BDO well positioned to serve our clients in a rapidly-changing world.”
Over the past year, BDO USA significantly expanded its core accounting, tax and advisory services through organic growth, and also welcomed eight specialized tax and advisory firms serving a wide range of industries. The firm’s assurance, tax and advisory business lines represent 46.00 percent, 33.00 percent and 21.00 percent of revenues, respectively.
Berson joined BDO in 2001 and has served as CEO since 2012. He is currently the chair of the global board of directors of BDO International, Ltd. and will serve as vice chair of the governing board of the Center for Audit Quality (CAQ), effective Oct. 1. Before serving as CEO, Berson was the Atlantic Assurance regional managing partner and chairman of the BDO board of directors.
