“2016 has been a year of expansion for the BDO network,” said BDO USA CEO Wayne Berson, who also chairs the global board of BDO International Ltd., in a statement. “As we continue to grow the network, we have a long-term investment strategy in global infrastructure, technology and talent that ensures we can provide exceptional client service and enables us to continue at the forefront of the ongoing consolidation taking place in the profession.”
