BDO has announced the appointment of Brad Reid as a partner in the Melbourne office of its business services division.


Mr Reid joins BDO from PwC’s private client division, bringing with him over 26 years’ experience in chartered accounting and expertise that covers all areas of taxation and superannuation, specialising in capital gains tax and corporate restructuring.

He was also a former partner at MGI Melbourne, prior to its acquisition by PwC, and was an auditor at the ATO before that.

BDO office managing partner in Melbourne David Garvey said Mr Reid’s appointment comes as the firm looks to grow its business services division.

“Brad is joining BDO at a crucial time as we see increased demand for our business services offering. Our clients want advisers with in-depth knowledge and experience who understand their business needs and simultaneously their family and personal wealth needs,” Mr Garvey said.

“We’re delighted to enhance our offering to clients with the addition of Brad’s specialist knowledge across a range of sectors.

“Brad is highly regarded in the market and has an impressive network of contacts, and we’re excited to have him join our growing business services team in Melbourne.”
