BDO has expanded its Latin American presence
by recruiting the first Costa Rican firm to the network.

Marín Méndez Consultores will rebrand as BDO
Costa Rica. The firm has four partners, 40 staff and annual revenue
of €690,000 ($870,000).

BDO chief executive Jeremy Newman said BDO
aims to increase its performance and success in Latin America.

“BDO’s Latin America region continued to
perform well in the difficult economic year – the region’s combined
fee income increased by 10% in 2009,” Newman said.

“Because client proximity is fundamental to
the success of our network, the addition of another well respected
firm can only fuel that success.”
