BDO International Adds Additional Member Firms in China
The BDO International network, the world's fifth largest accounting and consulting organization, this week announced the addition of two China based firms to the BDO International network. The BDO network now has five member firms in China. The new member firms, BDO Shenzhen Dahua Tiancheng, based in Shenzen and Guangzhou, and BDO Wuhan ZhongHuan, based in Wuhan, will augment BDO's existing China presence in Shanghai (BDO Shanghai Zhonghua), Beijing (BDO Reanda) and Hong Kong SAR (BDO McCabe Lo).
"With these new additions, BDO International now has a strong presence in the six major metropolitan areas -- Shanghai, Beijing, Hong Kong, Shenzhen, Wuhan and Guangzhou -- in China," said Paul Neubelt, Director of International Services at BDO Seidman LLP. "Given the growth potential of China's burgeoning economy, we fully expect to add more member firms in order to service this vast market."
BDO Shenzhen Dahua Tiancheng was established in 1987, and has 2 offices: one in Shenzhen, the other in Guangzhou. The firm's 11 partners and 83 total staff serve clients, including listed companies and financial institutions, in a variety of industries. BDO Wuhan ZhongHuan, in Wuhan, was also founded in 1987. The firm's 23 partners and 264 staff offer audit and accounting services to a broad spectrum of clients with special emphasis in heavy industry, retail, technology and financial services.
Voice of the Editor
Which isn’t completely true. I mean, occasionally I drop by when I manage to sneak out of the nonstop frat party over at Going Concern, but I’m mostly a wallflower over there. I’m happy to say that I’ve been given express permission (or explicit orders, if you like) to wander over here to AccountingWEB more often.
Why is that, you might ask? My job is to replace the irreplaceable Gail Perry as Editor-in-Chief. What does that mean? I don’t really know! I think it’ll be fun getting a feel for things, throwing in my own thoughts here and there, and listening to the discussions you’re having about the accounting profession.
