Andrea Bishop to lead BDO's charge in the south-west

A NEW lead partner has been chosen to take charge of BDO’s 160-strong team in Bristol.

Andrea Bishop, who has served the firm in audit for the past ten years, takes charge of the south-west division of BDO following three years under the leadership of Graham Randall.

Bishop spent ten years at EY before working with then CBI director-general Sir Digby Jones. During her career she has gained experience in working with large corporates and international businesses, as well as fast-growth firms in the technology sector.

“I am delighted to take over the leadership of our full service office in Bristol,” said Bishop. “We have a highly experienced team and are already seeing the benefits of this investment with a large number of new clients and prospects.”

The BDO Bristol office has seen great change under Randall’s tenure. In 2012 the firm moved to Bridgewater House, while the merger of BDO and PKF also saw integration work to serve clients across the south west and south Wales. He will now focus on growing the firm’s insolvency and restructuring practice.

Going forward, the firm is looking to increase staff numbers by 20% and is in the process of taking an additional 6,000 sq ft of space at Bridgwater House.
