The Bristol office of accountancy and business advisory firm BDO LLP has strengthened its Corporate Finance division with three new appointments.

James Thomas has joined BDO as Director after 13 years at ICON Corporate Finance in Bristol.

His appointment bolsters the firm’s expertise in the South West to facilitate deals in the broader cleantech and renewable energy markets.

Following three years at KPMG in Bristol, Sean Ward has joined BDO’s Corporate Finance team as Manager.

In his new role, Sean will concentrate on business development and seeking out opportunities in the mid market area with a particular focus on owner managed businesses across the South West and South Wales.

He will work closely with partner Laura Shaw, who heads up the South West team.

BDO is also now providing a dedicated Transactional Services offering from its Bristol office with the addition of Oliver Burton as Director.

Laura Shaw comments: “We have ambitious plans to continue our rapid growth of the Bristol office over the last few years and are delighted to welcome James, Oliver and Sean to the team.
