BDO's East Coast Partnership, which includes the Sydney and Melbourne offices, has appointed SMSF specialist Mark Wilkinson to head up its superannuation service offering.
This latest move from BDO is a reaction to market demands for wealth management and retirement planning advice, according to BDO Sydney managing partner Grant Saxon.
"Creating the new position and bringing Mark on board is a very deliberate move which is in line with the broader BDO strategy," said Mr Saxon.
"Our clients need hands-on expertise to guide them through the complexities of superannuation requirements in Australia.
"This is becoming a highly regulated industry and clients are looking for expertise as well as practical, hands-on advice.
"Mark comes to BDO with decades of experience and has been providing superannuation and retirement planning advice for over 20 years."
