According to AICPA, Newell’s responsibilities at BDO include working with audit engagement teams to determine the appropriate accounting for a variety of topics. In addition, she has played a key role in the Firm’s response to the new revenue recognition and leasing standards.

Prior to joining BDO, she was vice president – corporate controller for Fiesta Restaurant Group and vice president of revenue assurance and corporate controller for Clearwire. She began her career in auditing at Arthur Anderson.
