Commenting on his appointment, Graeme said: 

“Life sciences & pharma is an exciting sector both within the UK and internationally, with significant growth opportunities in the mid-market. I am looking forward to working with businesses to support them throughout their growth journey and help them to achieve their long-term goals alongside the ambitious and dynamic team at BDO.” 

Paul Eagland, Managing Partner at BDO added:    

“Businesses within the life sciences and pharma sector and beyond are operating in an increasingly complex regulatory environment, yet we continue to see businesses in the mid-market demonstrate their innovative spirit, often through scientific and technological advances.
