BerryDunn Announces Retirees: A Legacy of Leadership


The firm continues tradition of excellence with news of successors and practice leaders

BerryDunn celebrates the work of retirees and prepares for future growth. The firm honors these individuals and their contributions to building a strong foundation from which BerryDunn will continue to thrive in the years to come.

  • Steve Rodman, who merged his Rodman CPAs with BerryDunn in 2018, retired last June after 35 years. Kathy Parker is now the Principal-in-Charge of BerryDunn’s Boston office.
  • Helen Hadley, founding partner of VantagePoint Healthcare Advisors in New Haven, CT, merged her firm with BerryDunn in 2021.
  • Brad Borbidge, a 40-year leader in the Home Health and Hospice industry who merged his company with BerryDunn in 2015, leaves the practice in Dimitri Panacopoulos' hands.
  • Janice Latulippe, the leader of the Financial Services Practice Group, is retiring from BerryDunn after 34 years, and Rob Smalley, based out of the Manchester, NH, office, is the new leader of Financial Services.
  • Tracy Harding, who has spent the last year as the Chair of the national Auditing Standards Board (ASB), retires after 38 years. Todd Desjardins has taken over as the firms’ Quality Assurance Officer.
  • The founder of the firm’s Government Consulting Group, Tim Masse, a 30-year veteran of the firm, is departing after growing the three-person team he started in 1995 to become BerryDunn’s largest division. His legacy of entrepreneurship continues with the next generation of leaders within the firm.

John Chandler, Managing Principal and CEO from 1999-2021, retires from the firm after 35 years. John’s outstanding leadership strengthened the firm’s ability to evolve and innovate. His vision led to the creation of the John M. Chandler Learning & Development Center, which has paved the way for higher standards to help the firm better serve clients and each other. Current President and CEO Sarah Belliveau has been leading the firm since last July and will build on Chandler’s passion for creating a deliberately developmental culture to fuel growth at the firm.

Belliveau reflected, “As we honor these amazing people and their contributions to BerryDunn, what strikes me most is that they not only were instrumental in leading the firm to its current success, but that they have trained, nurtured, and created the firm’s next generation of leaders and innovators. That is their most powerful legacy.”
