Guy jojned BDO recently after a career with PwC and loves the wholistic approach to dealmaking within BDO. Nick started his career with KPMG. Both Nick and Guy love the personal approach at BDO, which implies being involved in all aspects of dealmaking. From valuation, due diligence to the making of the deal. The current economic and political uncertainty in South Africa fuels deal activity according to Guy and Nick.
