BDO appoints new audit partner

Rida Rahmani joins BDO as a partner in its international audit team, having built up more than 15 years’ experience as an auditor, most recently working primarily with commodities trading clients. Her role at BDO will see Rida working closely with large multinationals as they navigate the statutory audit services for their global subsidiaries. She joins from EY and will be based in London.

Commenting on her appointment, Rida 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. As a result, it has never been more important for businesses to be able to access high quality expertise to support them.

“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 recently announced that Anna Draper and Kaley Crossthwaite will join BDO’s leadership team as of 1st July.
