Chicago-based BDO USA (FY15 gross revenues of $1.05 billion) has announced that the firm’s partnership has re-elected Wayne Berson to a second four-year term as CEO, effective Nov. 1, 2016.

During the first three years of Berson’s initial term as CEO, BDO has experienced 70% growth in revenue, expanded market presence, industry leading gains in SEC clients and growing prominence as a favorable workplace for family-oriented professionals and recent college graduates, the firm announced.

Matthew Becker, chairman of the board of directors, says, “Wayne has performed in an exemplary fashion as CEO and we believe his continued leadership through another term is critical to the ongoing success of our firm.”

“I am honored by the confidence my fellow partners have shown in electing me to a second term as CEO,” says Berson. “Three and a half years ago, I was elected to this position with a mandate to increase growth and expand the firm’s footprint into additional markets. With the support of the board of directors, the unwavering dedication of my executive team, the commitment of our partners and the strong work ethic of our entire staff, we have met that challenge.”
