BDO HAS PROMOTED six new partners to be evenly split between its tax and audit departments.
There are three promotions in the audit department: Ian Clayden who joined in 1995 and specialises in the consumer market sector; Ed Goodworth who started in 2000 as a trainee and became an audit director in 2011; and Anna Draper who was recruited in 2007 as a senior manager, specialising in AIM and FTSE markets.
In tax, the three new partners are: Andy Goodman who began as a senior associate in 2003 with particular expertise in on employee pay and incentives; Richard Montague who joined in 2000 as a tax senior and is responsible for BDO’s Iberian and Scandinavian private client desk; and Mark Pickard who joined as director in 2008 responsible for developing the firm’s regional customs duty.
Simon Michaels, (pictured) managing partner at BDO, said: “I’m delighted that these six individuals have achieved partner status and can continue to act as senior leaders within our tax and audit business.”
