Effective immediately, Simon Yoo has taken to BDO as a risk advisory services partner, while Mark Beaumont has been appointed as business services partner. The former joins BDO’s Sydney office with the latter joining its Melbourne office.

Mr Yoo joins BDO from EY Sydney where he was executive director, Oceania leader of ASEAN, India and Korea business group. Prior to this, he held the title of managing partner of advisory services in EY Korea.


Mr Yoo brings almost three decades worth of experience to his new role, having worked with a broad range of organisations to improve their operations by assessing internal processes, risk management, and compliance with internal and external policies, and legislation throughout his career.

“We are pleased to welcome Simon Yoo to BDO’s Sydney office as a Risk Advisory partner focussing on Financial Services,” said BDO Sydney office managing partner, Grant Saxon, off the back of Mr Yoo’s appointment.

“With a long history working with banks, insurance companies and other financial institutions, in Australia and across Asia, Simon adds further credentials and scale to BDO’s growing Financial Services team.

“Simon also broadens BDO’s connections with Asian business networks – particularly through his involvement as a Director of the Australia-Korea Business Council and other Asian business groups.”

Meanwhile, Mr Beaumont, who joins BDO from Deloitte, brings over 13 years’ experience working with privately owned businesses and their owners to deliver complex advisory, finance function support, core tax and accounting compliance services.

According to a statement provided by the firm, Mr Beaumont has a keen interest in working with leading consumer product, retailers and wholesalers. He also has deep experience advising clients in the professional services, renewable energy and property sectors.

“Mark brings an impressive track record of providing first-rate accounting, taxation and advisory services to privately owned businesses and family groups,” added David Garvey, BDO Melbourne managing partner.

“Our business services offering provides exceptional personal service, however large or small the organisation happens to be. With clients ranging from start-ups to businesses exceeding $500 million, Mark’s network and skillsets perfectly complements our strategic focus. We are thrilled to have him join us.”
