Accountancy and business advisory firm BDO has strengthened its financial services team in Scotland with the appointment of a new partner.
Chris Meyrick joins BDO’s Scottish team as a partner focusing on the financial services (FS) sector and audit.
He has spent more than 20 years in the industry, with experience supporting a wide range of businesses ranging from large multinationals to smaller, owner managed businesses. He will be based across Glasgow and Edinburgh.
Meyrick said: “Financial services firms have demonstrated considerable resilience over the last two years despite the unprecedented uncertainty brought on by the pandemic and Brexit. The sector makes a significant contribution to the local market and will play a key role in the economic recovery of Scotland post-pandemic.
“I look forward to using my knowledge and experience working with both new and existing clients as they recover from the disruption of the last two years and look ahead to future growth and innovation. This is a really exciting time to be joining BDO, and I am looking forward to getting stuck into recruiting to grow our team and further develop our financial services practice in Scotland.”
Neil Fung-On, head of financial services at BDO, added: “Chris’ appointment reflects an exciting period of growth for BDO across the UK and in Scotland. Having a dedicated financial services partner with Chris’ experience demonstrates our commitment to the sector, its importance to the local Scottish economy and the increasingly complex needs of our FS clients. It is a pleasure to be able to welcome Chris to the team.”
