BDO USA LLP, a national accounting firm that moved into the region in 2013, ranked at the top of Accounting Today magazine’s list of audit client gains for last year.
The Chicago-based firm added 65 new audit clients — with a net of 57 — helping the growth that led the company to open an office in Harrisburg in June. The company also opened a Reading office at the same time, with a combined workforce of about 50.
Many of the local additions came from ParenteBeard LLC, which closed its Harrisburg office when employees moved to BDO.
The company also ranked No. 7 on the magazine’s list of top 100 firms.
ParenteBeard ranked 24th on the top 100 list. Deloitte LLC, which has an office in East Pennsboro Township, ranked No. 1. PricewaterhouseCoopers ranked No. 2, and KPMG ranked No. 4. Both have Harrisburg offices.
