BDO USA, a professional service organization, has expanded its firm with the addition of more than 250 staff, including 24 partners from three different firms, effective July 1.

More than 100 staff, including six partners, will be joining BDO from accounting firm Mikunda, Cottrell & Co. Founded in 1977, Mikunda, Cottrell is the largest accounting firm in Alaska, serving state and local governments, nonprofits, government contractors, employee benefit plans, healthcare and Alaska native for-profit corporations. In addition to these industry practices, this new presence in Alaska will generate opportunities for BDO to further leverage its existing strong energy practice.

An additional 60 staff, including six partners, will be joining BDO from consulting firm Moquist Thorvilson Kaufmann (MTK).  Founded in 1990, MTK serves family-owned and closely-held businesses, in addition to several publicly-traded companies. MTK has a strong client base in the manufacturing and software technology industries, as well as a significant employee benefit practice. 

BDO has also added 12 partners and as many as 97 employees formerly with the banking practice of ParenteBeard.

These new partners and employees, who will be joining BDO's financial institutions practice, will be located in BDO offices in Pennsylvania, Delaware, New York and New Jersey. These additions along the Northeast corridor follow the additions last fall of Asher & Company in Philadelphia and Argy, Wiltse & Robinson in Virginia.
