BDO appoints seven new partners

All seven new partners, except one, are current employees of BDO. The appointments will take effect from 1 July 2000.

BDO Stoy Hayward’s managing partner, Simon Bevan said: ‘The firm’s particular expertise in advising growing businesses continues to attract new clients. These appointments, many of which are internal, demonstrate our ability to develop and reward our own people for their excellence in advising entrepreneurs.’

Jon Breach and Andrew Ware will become partners in firm’s corporate finance division. Diane Campbell and John Le Poidevin will be appointed as new audit partners, with Campbell specialising in multinational clients.

Stuart Gerber has been appointed as partner in the tax investigations group and Wendy Walton becomes partner in the tax consultancy group, specialising in international tax. Andrew Pepper, previously of PricewaterhouseCoopers, will become a partner in the business recovery services.

Business recovery services team that comprises over 200 partners and staff across the UK, also gets a new national head, Tony Supperstone. Supperstone was former president of the Insolvency Practitioners’ Association and a former council member of Association of Business Recovery Professionals.

Four out of top five companies were clients of BDO and the firm has more clients in the top 50 than any other accountancy organisation, according to The Sunday Times’ Profit Track 100, a league table of the UK’s fastest growing unquoted companies in the past three years.
