Change management specialist BDO Greenlight, part of one of the largest professional service firms in the Channel Islands, has added three new consultants to its growing team.
Kushal Chheda, Dawn Barkhuizen and Kate Gosson bring with them expertise in a number of fields, including accounting, data protection, banking technology and change management.
Dawn, a qualified chartered accountant by trade, is an example of how the BDO Group, can offer its people the opportunity to transition between the core services of audit and assurance, tax, advisory, business services and outsourcing, technology services and change management. Dawn joins BDO Greenlight from the risk advisory practice where she has been working on internal audit and data regulation engagements.
“I am delighted to be able to join the BDO Greenlight change practice. I had already been working with the team on various engagements relating to the new GDPR and I hope to use my analytical skills and accountancy knowledge to supplement our team’s wealth of knowledge and expertise,” Dawn said.
Kate brings with her 15 years of change management experience working with organisations in Europe and her native Australia, where she ran her own consultancy firm. Kate has proficiency with using both Lean and Agile methodologies in a wide variety of industries.
“I pride myself on building strong relationships with key stakeholders and anticipating demands by listening and understanding client needs. I put strong emphasis on working collaboratively and delivering successful outcomes through careful management of people, risk and the appropriate level of governance,” Kate said.
Kushal is a business analyst and project manager with eight years’ experience in both Jersey and India developing, delivering and supporting applications and projects within the banking, wealth management and trust administration sectors.
“As a systems analyst I have honed my analytical, developer and reporting skills and have hands-on experience with business intelligence platforms and banking applications. I enjoy the discipline of applying scientific and technical knowledge to the design, analysis and construction of a solution that meet a client’s needs,” he said.
Allam Zia, Director, BDO Greenlight, said: “We have expanded rapidly in 2018 and are well placed to support business growth in an increasingly consolidated market place. We aim to support our clients across divisions and across the globe and being part of an integrated and international professional services network further enables this.
“Each of these new appointments adds a further dimension to the value that BDO Greenlight offer as a collective team. Kate, Kushal and Dawn are all experienced individuals but are already benefitting from further investment in their own learning and development. I am delighted to see them already helping our clients.”
