BDO bolsters tax and audit practice with trio of appointments

The appointments come as the firm said clients are facing ‘increasingly complex’ requirements and issues amid rising costs, staff shortages and economic uncertainty

BDO has announced the appointment of three new partners across its tax and audit practices in a bid to continue its “investment in people”, and all three new partners will be based in London. 

David Ellis joins as a tax partner in the firm’s global employer services team. In his new role, Ellis will specialise in advising clients on strategic reward, with a particular focus on technology driven organisations, having spent the last 18 months running his own reward consultancy business. 

Meanwhile, Louise Cupples joins from Deloitte and her new role at BDO as a tax partner will focus on advising medium-sized and larger professional service clients on international and UK tax matters. In particular, she will focus on the legal, consultancy and property advisory sectors. 

Additionally, Hannah Pop joins as a partner in BDO’s audit practice. As part of the consumer markets team, she will focus on working across the hospitality, leisure and retail sectors.

Pop’s previous experience includes working with larger FTSE listed firms, private equity backed businesses as well as mid-market and privately owned businesses.

Paul Eagland, managing partner at BDO, said: “Businesses are facing a myriad of pressures including rising costs, staff shortages and economic uncertainty. Consequently, our clients are coming to us with increasingly complex and ever-changing requirements and issues. 

“Our investment in talented and high-performing individuals supports our commitment to helping our clients navigate this challenging period.”
