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.
