BDO wins first place from the judges for managing to deliver a straight forward but vital service in a way that has added real value and reduced risk for global clients.

The judges were impressed that BDO successfully motivated their offices around the world to adopt a centralised service offer using a combination of technology and local delivery capability.

The result has been a service which appears well managed for quality and efficiency but preserves cultural sensitivities and adaptability to local requirements.

Having achieved this for one major client, the firm has repeated the success formula for other global clients and built a highly successful business line around this approach.

Winner's quote: "We’re delighted to have won two awards. We pride ourselves on the exceptional levels of service we deliver and it’s great to be recognised as such by the wider professional services industry".

Simon Michaels, Managing Partner, BDO LLP
