Three new appointments have strengthened accountancy and business advisory firm BDO LLP’s Midlands team.

Joining the Digital & Risk Advisory Service (DRAS) team as managers are Martin Hodgkins and Adam Gaunt, who will focus particularly on supply chain and logistics working alongside Fraser Paget, who was appointed as Head of Supply Chain and Logistics in July last year.

Adam, who has recently relocated from the UAE, joins from MMI, part of The Emirates Group, where he has spent the last eight years managing complex supply chains responsible for import/export logistics.

Martin, who joins from Molson Coors Beverage Company, brings 20 years’ experience within supply chain, procurement and logistics business functions. He also has project management experience within retail and manufacturing supply chains along with warehousing and e-commerce fulfilment.

Fraser Paget said: “Strengthening our management team with the appointment of two highly experienced industry specialists, in Martin and Adam, will ensure we have the very best talent and experience to build our advisory service proposition over the long-term.”

Joining them is Paul Hope, appointed as a Director in the Forensic and Valuations Services (FAVS) team. Paul specialises in insurance matters, disputes and deals, with a focus on increasing, protecting and recovering value for clients, as well as developing and advising them on the strategies needed to achieve such aims. He joins BDO following a 10-month career break.

Paul’s arrival follows the appointment of John Rouse as Partner in the FAVs team and the promotion of Sannan Khan to the same role at the end of 2022.

Kyla Bellingall, Regional Managing Partner at BDO in the Midlands, commented: “We’re delighted to welcome Paul, Martin and Adam to the Midlands team. They bolster areas of client businesses that are rapidly expanding and showing significant growth potential, both regionally and nationally.”
