Rochester, N.Y. (January 5, 2023) – Today, The Bonadio Group, a nationally ranked Top 50 CPA firm, announced the promotions of four partners from the firm’s Rochester, Albany and Buffalo offices, effective January 1, 2023. As The Bonadio Group continues to strive “To Be Greater” in the new year, these promotions support the firm’s goals for growth and excellence.

Recently promoted partners include:

  • Christopher Abram (Rochester): Formerly a principal of The Bonadio Group’s Health Care and Tax-Exempt Practice, Chris brings over 17 years of public accounting, auditing, and consulting experience to his new role, primarily in the long-term care space.
  • Jennifer Arnold (Buffalo): With 20 years of expertise in business consulting and tax services for both large and small closely held businesses, Jennifer is a leader in the dedicated Cross Border Tax group, working closely with the firm’s various international clients.
  • Kathleen Bloss (Albany): Kathleen (Kait) has specialized in commercial, construction, labor, privately held companies, and employee benefit plans at the firm for over 16 years, most recently as a principal. She is also a member of the Construction Financial Management Association (CFMA).
  • Karen Lynch (Rochester): Having started at the firm as an intern over 20 years ago, Karen most recently served as a principal with the firm’s Health Care and Tax-Exempt Practice, focused on student financial aid compliance, as well as federally qualified health centers and other audit engagements.

“As we continue our journey to enhance every facet of our business, we look to our people to lead with promise and purpose,” said Bruce Zicari, CEO, The Bonadio Group. “Chris, Jennifer, Kait and Karen have done just that with their dedication and leadership. We are so proud to recognize their talents by welcoming them to the partnership.”

In June 2022, the firm announced their “To Be Greater” campaign focused on creating and marketing an unparalleled employee experience, with reward and recognition being key tenets. To this end, The Bonadio Group promoted more than 60 team members across the firm in September in addition to the recent partner promotions.

Further demonstrating its position as a leader in the industry, in 2022 alone the firm was recognized as a Best CPA Firm for Women and Equity Leadership by the Accounting MOVE Project, A Fortune Best Workplace in Consulting & Professional Services, a Top 100 Firm by both Inside Public Accounting and Accounting Today and a regional top workplace across New York State.
