New Audit Partner joins BDO from PwC as firm continues to see substantial growth

03 February 2020

BDO welcomes new Audit Partner James Dixon to the Melbourne office, who joins from PwC where he was a Director, specialising in Financial Services Assurance.

James’ appointment follows five internal promotions at the beginning of January, which bolstered BDO’s Partner total to 200 nationally.

BDO Office Managing Partner in Melbourne, David Garvey, said he’s excited to welcome James to the firm during a period of substantial growth for BDO in Australia.

“We expect 2020 will be an exciting year for BDO with new talent joining the firm, continued growth and the merging of our Sydney, Brisbane and Melbourne offices creating new opportunities for BDO to win new work from our larger global competitors,” David said.

“Financial Services is a significant growth area for BDO nationally and James will bring additional capabilities and insights to our team. This is a great time for James to join our growing firm and we’re glad to have him here,” he said. 

In the 2018/2019 financial year, BDO’s Melbourne office reported a 17% increase in revenue. For the 2019/2020 financial year, the Year-To-Date revenue growth of the Melbourne office has continued above last year’s growth.

In November 2019, the Australian Financial Review named BDO as the “Fastest Growing Mid-Tier Firm” for the second year running. 

BDO released its global results in December 2019 with global revenue topping US$9.6 billion for the year ending 30 September 2019, representing a year on year growth of 10.1%.
