Accountancy and business advisory firm, BDO has added its Midlands Regional Managing Partner, Kyla Bellingall, to its new national Leadership Team.

The appointment follows the election of Mark Shaw as the firm’s new Managing Partner with both appointments effective from 1st October 2024. Kyla’s leadership team role will focus on regions, markets and sectors and she will continue as Regional Managing Partner in the Midlands.

Kyla has more than 25 years’ experience having joined the profession as a school leaver apprentice. She joined BDO as an Audit Partner in 2015 with a focus on developing a not-for-profit sector group in the Midlands. Prior to her appointment as Regional Managing Partner, Kyla was Head of Audit for the Midlands for two years, navigating the challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic and driving revenue growth of 75%.

Since taking on the position of Regional Managing Partner in July 2022, BDO’s Midlands practice has experienced strong growth including nine new partners and revenue growth of over 40%, with a team of over 500 people now working across its Birmingham and Nottingham city centre offices.

Commenting on her appointment, Kyla said:

“After a wonderful two years of leading BDO’s Midlands team I am delighted to be taking on this additional role, ensuring we continue to champion our regional offices at the most senior level within the firm. I have ambitious plans for BDO’s Midlands practice with further investment planned for later in the year.

“The growth of our Midlands practice is a reflection of BDO’s growth as a firm overall. Our core market of mid-sized, ambitious and entrepreneurial businesses has demonstrated strength and resilience during a challenging economic period.

“I look forward to working with Mark and the new Leadership Team at an exciting time for BDO as we continue to support businesses across the UK, building on our heritage and looking to our future.”
