BHP Corporate Finance appoints partner to expand due diligence offering

8th August 2019

BHP Corporate Finance has appointed a new partner to focus on further developing the firm's due diligence offering.

Experienced corporate financier Martin Athey, who has worked in the Yorkshire accountancy market for more than 20 years, will be the fifth partner to join the 20 strong Corporate Finance team. Martin, who most recently led the regional Financial Due Diligence team for RSM, will be leading the development and expansion of the specialist due diligence service line at BHP Corporate Finance. Further additions to the team are anticipated in due course. Martin said: -I'm delighted to be joining BHP - a firm which stood out to me for a variety of reasons but particularly the quality of its people and its great culture, as evidenced by it being recognised by the Sunday Times in their 100 Best Companies to Work For list. -BHP's strategy is to develop a specialist Financial Due Diligence service line which will have all of the benefits of being part of a large accountancy firm environment, but also be able to operate with the flexibility and agility of a boutique offering. -The opportunity for me to develop the Due Diligence team is a fantastic one this is an exciting time for me as I'm convinced that we're ideally placed to provide high-quality and value for money advice to our clients and contacts across the region and beyond. With more than 350 staff, including 33 partners, over the last 10 years BHP has increased turnover from £8m to over £22m. BHP is in the top 35 accountancy firms in the UK and was also recently recognised with the Community Award at the Yorkshire Dealmakers Awards. For more information about BHP visit
