25th July 2019, 10:29 am
Accountancy and business advisory firm, BDO LLP, has appointed Rob McCann as a partner in its North West M&A team as the business continues to strengthen its practice across the region. Rob joins from Lloyds Bank where he was a director.
With over 18 years’ experience, Rob has extensive corporate finance expertise working within the mid-market. At BDO, Rob will work with the M&A team across the North, leading the team in Manchester and building on his experience in the local and national private equity market to help businesses achieve their strategic investment and exit ambitions.
Ed Dwan, Partner and Head of the North West at BDO, said: “At BDO, we are committed to attracting and retaining the very best talent across the North West. The firm has had a stellar 12 months in the region and nationally which has enabled us to continue to invest in our people. Rob will be a welcome addition to the team and will further strengthen our M&A practice.”
Rob McCann added: “BDO is leading its markets in the region and beyond, from private equity and AIM to privately-owned businesses. The opportunity to work with entrepreneurial and ambitious fast-growth companies really attracted me to this role and I look forward to building upon the team’s already strong reputation.”
Since announcing its merger with Moore Stephens LLP at the beginning of the year, making it the UK’s number one accountancy and advisory firm focused on entrepreneurially-spirited mid-sized businesses, BDO has appointed 12 new partners since January spanning the business’ national offices including the recent hire of tax partner Liam O’Doherty to BDO’s Manchester office.
