BDO appoints new advisory partner

Accountancy and business advisory firm, BDO has appointed a new partner to its advisory practice.

Carly Bleathman joins the firm’s business services and outsourcing (BSO) team to lead its finance function advisory offering.  

Carly has held several finance roles both in practice and in industry including working as Group Financial Controller for an AIM listed business, a Project Accountant focusing on pre-IPO work and listing, and as Finance Director of a high growth private equity backed business. Carly has a number of years of experience dealing with IPO readiness, fundraising, investor reporting, digital transformation and international expansion out from the UK.

Carly will be working with high growth, mid-market businesses, driving forward several projects including BDO’s finance function of the future offering and the ongoing development of a broader CFO services proposition. She will be based in London.

Commenting on her appointment, Carly said:

“Ambitious, entrepreneurially-spirited businesses are the driving force behind the UK economy and the client heartland of BDO’s BSO practice. I’m looking forward to working with the high-performing team and these businesses to support them throughout their growth journey and help them achieve their long-term goals.”

Paul Eagland, Managing Partner at BDO added: “We are navigating a challenging economic period, but continue to see businesses demonstrating their resilience and ambition, often through new innovation and technology, international growth or M&A activity.

“Appointing talented individuals like Carly is crucial to BDO as we continue to grow our advisory practice. I have no doubt that Carly’s knowledge and experience will see her offer both new and existing BSO clients the valuable advice they require to help them succeed.”
