BDO brought a cross-disciplinary approach to the mandate and was led by Tony Schiavello, Partner and National Head of M&A and Silvio, Director M&A, who worked seamlessly alongside Jason de Boer, Partner Corporate Tax and Head of Tax BDO.

We met Silvio and Tony in October 2022 and they did a brilliant job in guiding us through to completion in April 2023. The advice we received was professional, timely and critical to the sale.
