Accountancy and business advisory firm BDO has bolstered its audit practice with the appointment of Rida Rahmani as a new partner in its London office.
Rahmani joins the firm’s international audit team from EY, having built up more than 15 years’ experience as an auditor, most recently working primarily with commodities trading clients.
In her new role at BDO, Rahmani will work closely with large multinationals as they navigate the statutory audit services for their global subsidiaries.
Rahmani said: “Clients are facing a myriad of challenges at the moment, including the complex regulatory requirements of trading internationally, global supply-chain disruption and geo-political uncertainty.
“I am thrilled to be able to add value to BDO’s clients with my international audit expertise. I’m also looking forward to getting to know the team, including coaching and mentoring colleagues who are looking to develop themselves and their careers within the firm.”
Paul Eagland, managing partner at BDO, added: “This appointment is a key part of our ongoing investment in our audit capabilities and resources. As the profession continues to go through a historic period of reform, we remain committed to providing the highest level of quality audits for both UK and global businesses.
“Rida’s experience of working with clients but also her desire to support the development and wellbeing of the people in her team makes her a fantastic fit with BDO’s culture.”
Since the start of this year, BDO has appointed 13 new external partners. The firm also recently announced that Anna Draper and Kaley Crossthwaite will join BDO’s leadership team on 1 July.
