BDO Poaches Someone From Deloitte and Issues a Press Release, Parts III and IV

BDO of the Australian variety recently snagged a couple of partners from the Green Dot.

John Bresolin

First, former BDO audit partner John Bresolin got his old job back following a two-year stint as a partner at Deloitte in Sydney.

BDO Sydney Managing Partner Grant Saxon said Bresolin started his career with BDO as a cadet in 1987 when the firm was then known as PKF. He called it “disappointing for us” when Bresolin left for greener pastures at Deloitte Private in 2018 but added he is “delighted that John has now come back to the fold, which is a fantastic recognition of BDO’s strong position in the mid-market, our unique culture and approach to client service, as well as the quality of our work.”

Saxon said Bresolin’s areas of expertise are retail, automotive, wholesale and distribution, technology and media, and not-for-profit organizations.

“He brings extensive audit skills and experience dealing with audit committees in the mid-market. His expertise will help both existing and new clients tackle what lies ahead in a challenging business environment.”

Matthew O’Byrne

The other partner Bravo Delta Oscar lured away from Deloitte is Matthew O’Byrne, who will be a partner in the Melbourne tax practice.

O’Byrne “has a proven track record building a strong network of high-net-worth clients and advising some of Australia’s wealthiest families and their businesses,” said BDO Melbourne Managing Partner David Garvey, who added that O’Byrne’s expertise is in the real estate and retail sectors.
