New Partner Appointment BDO WA

02 March 2018

BDO is pleased to announce the appointment of Pippa Hobson as partner in the Perth Risk Advisory Services team.

Pippa comes from Crowe Horwath and has over 20 years’ experience in internal audit, governance and risk advisory, working with clients across all sectors, including the public sector, listed and non-listed companies in the private sector and not for profit entities. Her industry experience includes government, financial services, food and beverage, manufacturing, not for profit, property and utilities.  

Peter Toll, BDO’s WA Managing Partner, said that the addition of Pippa to the Risk Advisory team, will allow them to meet the increased client demand for internal audit and risk consulting work being experienced by our firm.

“In fact, BDO WA’s advisory service line as a whole, which encompasses Risk Advisory, Forensic Services, Cyber Security and Management Consulting is similarly responding to increased demand for their respective offerings” said Mr Toll.

Andrew Hillbeck, the lead partner for Risk Advisory Services (RAS) in WA, noted “the rapid pace of change and the continually shifting landscape being faced by all industry players, is requiring organisations to identify, assess and address emerging risks without losing sight of their existing business and control environment.”

“We are looking forward to welcoming Pippa, and her wealth of experience, insights and knowledge to the RAS team” adds Andrew. 

This appointment aligns with the overall growth strategy of BDO in Western Australia and brings the total number of partners in the Perth office to 25.
