Outgoing BDO chief considers public sector move

Outgoing BDO global chief Jeremy Newman might look to the public sector for his next role

JEREMY NEWMAN, outgoing global head of BDO, might turn his hand to public sector work or underperforming businesses when he formally steps down at the end of this month.

Known for his outspoken criticism of Big Four market ‘domination’, Newman told Accountancy Age he “wants to do something completely different” and will move away from professional services altogether.

“I want to get back to the coalface”, he said, revealing his desire for a “more real and hands-on role”.

“There’s something that seems slightly more worthwhile about some public sector roles”, he mused, hinting that a managerial role in a large local authority would be appealing.

A more in-depth interview with Newman is to follow.
