BDO is proud to announce the appointment of Tony Batsakis and John Burger as the newest partners to join our team.

Tony brings over 28 years of experience in assurance and advisory services, specialising in financial audits, internal controls, and financial reporting.

BDO's Melbourne Office Managing Partner, David Garvey, said Mr Batsakis’ expertise is a major coup.

“Tony deeply understands diverse industries, including education, technology, manufacturing, and professional services,” Mr Garvey said.

“His expertise caters to a diverse clientele, encompassing ASX-listed and public companies, high-net-worth families, and private equity firms.

“With a deep understanding of the unique needs of emerging enterprises, Tony is the perfect addition to a team passionate about assisting clients with complex financial reporting issues.”

Mr Batsakis previously held a leadership role at KPMG, where he developed a reputation for his solid commitment to innovation and quality, most notably leading the National Enterprise Audit Division where he oversaw significant growth.

Passionate about supporting emerging businesses and mid-market clients in Australia, Tony is excited to join BDO, a firm that shares his commitment to client service and innovation.

Meanwhile, BDO has announced the appointment of our new Project and Infrastructure Advisory partner, John Burger to the Perth office. 

Mr Burger joins BDO after spending the past 10 years with EY as an associate partner in Strategy and Transactions, where he was responsible for leading EY’s Real Estate and Project Management division in Perth.

BDO's Perth Office Managing Partner James Massie-Taylor said Mr Burger’s appointment will significantly strengthen BDO’s commercial real estate advisory practice.

“A skilled communicator and proven operator, John has relationships and established networks across government, private and not-for-profit organisations,” Mr Massie-Taylor said.

“He brings with him over 20 years of experience in the WA market, having led consultancy and multi-disciplinary teams to deliver commercial and financial advice to a diverse client, industry, and sector base.

“His broad technical knowledge and credential base across real estate, development, and social infrastructure is something we know will make a real impact at BDO and we’re delighted to welcome him to the team.”
