BDO: Largest intake of partners in history of firm

BDO welcomed 25 new partners over the last financial year, the largest partner intake in the firm’s history.

BDO’s ten newest partner appointments announced today, in addition to the 15 partners announced in February 2021, signals strong client demand and continued growth taking BDO’s national tally of partners up to 222.

“It has been a big year for BDO with extraordinary demand for skills in our sector,” BDO’s chief executive partner Tony Schiffmann said.

“We’ve responded by nurturing a distinct culture - which is reflected in how we are servicing our clients, attracting high calibre talent and retaining and promoting great people - a culture which the market has also clearly recognised.”

BDO enjoys a strong pipeline of future leaders; ten of the year’s 25 partner appointments were internal promotions and, during the same period, BDO appointed 55 Associate Directors.

“Our culture is a key factor that attracts new hires to BDO.  We continue to invest heavily in our people-centric approach and build upon our positive brand values and behaviours.  Culture is a key differentiator for people looking to move or join a professional services firm.  We have cultivated a culture that is an attractive proposition to quality talent who are looking to grow and become part of a successful and growing firm,” continued Schiffmann.

“These most recent promotions and appointments strengthen our market offering and are quite evenly spread across tax, advisory and audit areas.”
