Citrin Cooperman is pleased to announce that Joseph ‘Bo’ Fitzpatrick, CPA, has joined as office managing partner of the firm’s DC Metro office. Fitzpatrick joins the firm with significant public accounting and business leadership experience. He will lead the continued expansion into the DC Metro market, which the firm first entered into in 2015. The DC Metro office was previously led by Partner Phil Baker, who will be transitioning into the role of technical tax leader for the office.
“The firm has built its reputation on being business advisors, providing high-value services that go well beyond the standard tax and audit work,” said Mark Carrow, regional managing partner of Citrin Cooperman Philadelphia- DC Metro. “Bo is a terrific addition to our team, with both the technical accounting knowledge and real-life business experience. I’m thrilled to be working with him, as we continue to invest in the talent and resources for our growing client base in a key market.”
Through his role as office managing partner, Fitzpatrick will guide the DC Metro office, which specializes in advising public and privately-held businesses, with a focus on government contracting, real estate, construction, health care, and not-for-profit organizations. Fitzpatrick has significant experience advising public and privately-held businesses.
“Having founded and grown my own business and helped to lead others, the entrepreneurial nature of Citrin Cooperman was a huge draw for me,” said Fitzpatrick. “I see a lot of potential in the DC Metro area and I’m looking forward to helping both the firm and our clients achieve the highest levels of success.”
Prior to joining Citrin Cooperman, Fitzpatrick was the founder of 20-20 Services LLC, an educational platform delivering core training to the accounting profession in the areas of audit, tax, leadership, professional development, and soft skills training. Fitzpatrick’s public accounting experience includes 10 years at local and national firms, as well as six years serving in controller and CFO roles at public and privately-held companies. In addition, Fitzpatrick acted as president and COO of AuditWatch for almost a decade, seeing the company through its transition upon being acquired by Thomson Reuters.
