Paul Eagland, managing partner at BDO, said: “Just one month after announcing two new partners, I am thrilled to be announcing another three partners are joining the firm.
“We are only two months in to 2019 and our recent merger with Moore Stephens LLP has set the tone for a great year ahead as we continue to attract the best and brightest talent across all levels. The experience that Simon, Leighton and Matt bring to their respective teams will be a fantastic addition to BDO.”
