Not that I know of, but my experience in "corporate" is limited. I
once (+12 years ago) suggested to move one of our products (a load
balancer) from a badly customised version of Linux to OpenBSD and I
was told to mind my own business, and that was it.

In the grand order of things, <insert distro>*Linux and <insert
flavour>*BSD are quite similar. They are both open-source; application
compatibility is almost 100%. There are obvious technical differences
under the bonnet, but your average corporate manager won't spend time
and brain power trying to understand. If they do, call yourself lucky.
