BDO Germany restructures executive board

Holger Otte has been appointed as chair of BDO Germany’s executive board.

Otte is a long standing member of BDO’s executive board and an internationally experienced auditor.

His responsibility as chair will be to strengthen BDO’s position in Germany through differentiating it as a convincing alternative to the dominating Anglo-American audit groups.

Otte’s focus will be for BDO to target the larger mid-market companies, especially owner-managed businesses.

Werner Jacob will join Otte on the executive board as vice chairman.

International leadership role

In addition to his new role as chairman, Otte will become chair of the BDO International policy board, the central governing body of the worldwide Network, as of 1 January 2011.

Otte’s appointment to the policy board will allow him to continue to develop the life work of his father, Hans-Heinrich Otte, who co-founded the international BDO network.

External Relations

Christian Dyckerhoff, who has been spokesperson for the BDO Germany executive board for 13 years, will assume the newly created board position for external relations.

Dyckerhoff’s responsibility will be to maintain and develop national and international relations between BDO and public institutions, associations and professional bodies.
