Established in 2015, VALD has grown to be a world leader in musculoskeletal assessment and rehabilitation technologies.   

Measuring human movement, performance and injury rehabilitation, VALD technologies are used by over 1,000 of the world’s elite sports organisations, clinics, universities, hospitals and defence departments, across 65 countries.

Driven by rapid growth, VALD CEO, Laurie Malone, recognised the business needed to scale operations. 

“VALD identified a need to look at our financial governance and provision of information to our senior management and stakeholders, bringing on Malcolm Thompson as CFO to take the lead in navigating our growth challenges,” Mr Malone said.

Through a tender process, VALD CFO, Malcolm Thompson, reached out to several firms.

“BDO clearly showed superior value for money in meeting our needs with excellent capabilities and responsiveness on a local and international basis,” Mr Thompson said.

BDO has since led a cross disciplinary review of VALD operations, providing insights into operational efficiencies and best practice approaches to policies, procedures and systems, allowing VALD to efficiently scale up and manage continued growth.   

“The wealth of experience that BDO has been able to bring to the table, dealing with founder-led high-growth organisations challenged by scaling international operations has been absolutely immeasurable,” Mr. Thompson said.   

“We really engage with BDO and are now confident in our processes and systems, and have clear insight into future improvements and the operational steps needed to efficiently handle growth.”

With no signs of slowing down, VALD continue to leverage BDO’s capabilities and deep knowledge, particularly in navigating the challenges associated with accelerated growth and scaling.

“BDO is highly accessible, which is vitally important to VALD as a fast-moving, high-growth international tech company.”
