Chicago-based BDO USA LLP (FY13 net revenue of $683 million) announced that Lynn Calhoun has been named the firm’s new CFO. Calhoun, a partner, was previously the firm’s director of finance.

Calhoun succeeds Howard Allenberg as CFO. After serving in various national leadership roles over the past 18 years, Allenberg is stepping down from full-time duties, but will continue to assist the CEO and the national leadership team on special projects. This appointment is effective July 1.

“I want to congratulate Lynn Calhoun on his promotion to chief financial officer,” says Wayne Berson, CEO of BDO.  “As a member of the national finance team, he has already been a valuable contributor to the firm’s financial strategy and those contributions will grow further as he assumes his duties as CFO.  Lynn is well deserving of this leadership role.”
