The mid-tier has appointed nine new partners as of 1 July this year, four of whom have been internal promotions.
Of its five external appointments, three were hires from big four rivals, including forensic services partner Stan Gallo from KPMG, audit and assurance partner James Dixon from PwC and tax partner James Trainor from KPMG.
The firm also confirmed that 18 new associate directors and directors were appointed over the last 12 months.
BDO national chair Helen Argiris said the appointments signalled continued growth during difficult economic conditions.
“During this challenging time, these appointments reflect our current growth and strong market position as we continue to focus on the immediate needs of our clients and the quality of our people we attract and retain,” Ms Argiris said.
“Of the nine appointments over the last financial year, four are internal promotions, which demonstrates our strong pipeline of future leaders within the firm and our commitment to the development of our people.
“While 2020 is proving a challenging year for all industries, we have sustained good growth this year, and with projected revenues to hit $325 million in 2020, attracting high-calibre people is paramount in order to achieve our growth goals.”
