Fahim Khondaker

Partner, Consulting



Fahim leads BDO’s Data Analytics & Insights service offering in Brisbane. Our Data Analytics & Insights team provides genuine value to our clients through various strategic and corporate advisory engagements.  We understand that even the most impressive mathematical algorithm or data visualisation is of little value to our clients if it does not achieve the outcome sought.

Fahim joined BDO as a graduate in 2009 and also has experience in working in many other divisions within BDO including Consulting, Corporate Finance, Private Clients and Audit. This breadth of experience allows him to develop holistic solutions to the wide range of issues that our clients face.

In recent years, Fahim has established himself as a sought after thought leader in the Australian Data Analytics industry. He is a regular guest lecturer for the University of Queensland’s MBA Program, and has presented at a range of high profile national conferences including CPA Australia’s annual Congress in Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane. Some of Fahim’s work has also been published in the CIO Outlook (a coveted international technology magazine based in California, USA).

Outside of work, Fahim is the co-founder of an App development start-up and is involved with a number of charities and community organisations which promote social cohesion and understanding.
