This week BDO has made two partner appointments in response to an increase in demand for business transformation services, especially around human capital and complex tax advisory and consulting.
Cristian Ulloa, who has more than 20 years’ experience working with both public and private sector organisations, has been recruited as partner, human capital to BDO’s consulting service line, from 12 December 2016.
Mr Ulloa specialises in strategic leadership development, HR strategy formulation, HR measurement and workforce planning. He has held senior roles with Mercer and his own consultancy firm.
“Disruption is transforming the business landscape for many of our clients. Cristian will lead our human capital service offering at a time when organisational transformation needs careful and strategic management,” said Karina Collins, BDO consulting national lead partner.
“He will provide strategic HR services to government and private sector clients as well as not-for-profits, and will work alongside our existing consulting services lines – strategy, operations and technology.”
Shannon Rowe, who has worked at BDO for five years, has been promoted from associate director to partner, private clients, starting 1 January 2017.
Mr Rowe has more than 17 years’ experience working across complex compliance matters, and will draw upon this in his new position to support BDO’s large and complex family enterprise clients with complex compliance requirements and challenges.
“Shannon’s promotion to the position of partner is well earned and will augment our private clients offering at a time when demand for our taxation and advisory services to this segment of the market, especially those operating across multiple global jurisdictions, is increasing exponentially,” said Rolf Larsen, BDO private clients partner.
“BDO’s local experts have direct access to our global network, providing a cross-border model that is well placed to service clients who operate across international boundaries, and Shannon’s expertise in financial analytics, profit maximisation and problem solving will add significant value to our complex client needs.”
