BDO International has appointed Semaan, Gholam & Co as its new member firm in Lebanon.
Former Lebanese member Fiduciaire du Moyen Orient has left the network following an ‘amicable agreement’, according to BDO International.
Semaan, Gholam & Co has 90 staff members and partners based in Beirut.
BDO International chief executive Jeremy Newman said the firm specialises in audit, which “accounts for the large majority of the firm’s income.”
Newman also said the firm has seen substantial growth in the past three years with more than a 10% increase in fee income.
BDO Lebanon’s international liaison partner Antoine Gholam said the firm is looking to “enhance our service offering through collaboration with BDO firms both across the Middle East region and further afield.”
