BDO strengthens wealth management team
Top ten firm BDO Stoy Hayward has bolstered its wealth management division in the Midlands with the addition of a senior three-man team from Baker Tilly.
The team includes two directors and a pensions manager, formerly from HLB Kidsons, now part of Baker Tilly, following the merger of the firms earlier this year.
The three are Simon Preston, an investment specialist, pension specialist Andy McGowan and John Pottinger, who had worked for BDO before joining Kidsons in 1999.
BDO senior partner in the Midlands Pat Moore said the team would bring additional and complimentary skills to the firm, while lead partner for the region Martin Palmer said the expansion was part of a drive to expand wealth management operations.
