BDO Appoints New National Head for Business Services and Advisory

08 October 2015

Lionel Higgo has been appointed as the new National Head for Business Services and Advisory for audit, advisory and tax firm, BDO South Africa.

Higgo, who has 22 years of experience in the industry, is currently a partner with BDO South Africa and has now been promoted to this new position, which will see him driving the growth and development of the Business Services division of BDO – enabling the firm to offer its clients additional value-added services in innovative ways.

Prior to joining BDO, Higgo was a Financial Manager for PSG Investment Services and PSG Konsult. Higgo then joined Higgo Chartered Accountants in 2004, which merged with CAP Chartered Accountants in 2011. In 2014 CAP Chartered Accountants merged with BDO South Africa.

"I am very excited about my new role," says Higgo. "Specifically, I am looking forward to the roll-out of our new service called BDO InTouch, which I believe will see BDO becoming the leader in the Business Services and Advisory market as we will be delivering exceptional client service in new and innovative ways. Not only that, but we are also aiming to assist SME's to become sustainable."

"Through BDO InTouch we will place up-to-date business performance information at our clients' fingertips, available on any device, anywhere. Coupled with expert advice we will assist our clients to make more informed business decisions and work through the challenges their business may face. The BDO Business Services and Advisory division aims to become an integral part of our clients' businesses, helping them to understand their enterprise in ways that could not be delivered in an affordable way before," concludes Higgo.
