BDO makes 97 Midlands promotions, including three partners
BDO, an accountancy and advisory firm with offices across the country, has made 97 promotions in its Midlands team, three of which are to partner.
Vinny Patel (featured above, centre right), who joined the firm as a trainee in 2003, has been promoted to partner in the transaction services team. He is experienced in providing due diligence on acquisition and vendors for corporate/trade acquirers, private equity and bank investments, as well as public market transactions.
Meanwhile, Claire Hudson (centre left) has been promoted to partner in the business tax team, having joined BDO ten years ago. She provides UK and international tax advice to a number of large and sophisticated groups, on matters including tax structuring, due diligence and reorganisations, along with leading on compliance engagements.
Joining Claire and Vinny is Sannan Khan (furthest left), from the Forensic Accounting and Valuation Services (FAVS) team, who has been with BDO since 2017. Sannan is experienced in complex forensic investigations (of both the accounting and non-accounting variety) and risk management matters in economic crime in the private and public sectors.
Kyla Bellingall (furthest right), Midlands Managing Partner, said: “The Midlands tax team has ambitious plans in the next four years which, coupled with impending and far-reaching audit reforms, provides vast potential for growth moving forwards – ambitions which Claire will play a key role in helping to deliver.
“Equally, Vinny and Sannan are an important part of two core areas of the business that have significant scope for further growth as we look to expand the regional offering in the next five to 10 years. Claire, Vinny and Sannan should be incredibly proud of their achievements.
“Every promotion and appointment represent BDO’s commitment to investing in our people and the future of our business in the region and nationwide, and we’re delighted to reward those people who have demonstrated true commitment, dedication, and passion in their chosen specialisms.
“The raft of promotions we have made across the region is highly indicative of our continued desire to invest in our business while, at the same time, placing us in a much stronger position to support our clients as they attempt to navigate through the current economic climate and significant financial headwinds.”
