Accountancy and business advisory firm BDO has announced the appointment of Carol Hindle as the firm’s new M&A partner in a bid to strengthen its tax advisory team based in London.
In her new role at BDO, Hindle will work with private equity firms and support a range of corporates with the delivery of commercially focused tax strategies across the entire investment cycle.
Hindle joins after having spent over 30 years in the accounting and finance industry. She has spent the last 20 years of her career working with advising private equity (PE) backed businesses with transactions and portfolio arrangements.
Additionally, over the last nine months, Hindle has worked with a leading mid-market PE House, providing transactional tax support to their portfolio, and was previously at Deloitte.
Since January, BDO has appointed 22 external and 46 internal individuals as partner.
Hindle said: “I am delighted to be joining BDO as a partner as the firm continues to grow. Despite the uncertainty and disruption brought on by the pandemic, the M&A market has proved incredibly resilient, bouncing back to pre-pandemic levels relatively quickly in terms of deal volume and making demand for M&A advisors particularly strong.
“BDO is a market leader in advising ambitious, private equity backed businesses and I hope to continue to utilise my knowledge to support the firm’s expert tax and advisory teams.”
Paul Eagland, managing partner at BDO, said: “I am thrilled to be able to welcome Carol to the firm today. This appointment along with our other newly appointed and promoted partners, demonstrates our commitment to investing in our people and the future of the business.
“The wealth of experience Carol offers will be a huge asset to BDO and help us support the increasingly complex needs and requirements of our clients.”
