A private client senior manager in BDO’s Yorkshire team has been included in the prestigious 2020 eprivateclient Top 35 Under 35.
Tax senior manager, Aniella Bodnar, was chosen alongside BDO London colleague, Alex Fish, a senior manager in Private Client Tax, in the annual list of leading young private client practitioners in the UK and UK Crown Dependencies.
With over 540 nominations, the definitive list was decided by an independent judging panel and is made up of 70 young professionals from across the UK. The Top 35 Under 35 is designed to identify, recognise, introduce and promote the rising stars of the private wealth advisory sector.
Vanessa Lee, partner and head of private client services across the North of England, said: “This is a great endorsement for Aniella and Alex’s achievements, particularly in the current climate.
“Aniella joined the team in May and has quickly transitioned into an integral member of the team during the COVID-19 lockdown, supporting clients with an array of issues whilst passionately helping junior colleagues to understand “what great looks like” and how to get there.
“Equally, Alex joined Moore Stephens LLP in December 2018 during which time the firm was merging with BDO. Through this, Alex demonstrated his adaptability and capabilities in a time of great change both for himself personally and for the firm. Their inclusion in the prestigious list is not only testament to their abilities in Private Client Services, but it also strongly reflects on the whole team and the service we provide.”
Aniella manages the firm’s Leeds Private Client Services team and has 12 years’ experience, with particular interest in succession planning and inheritance tax. She is a Chartered Tax Adviser and a member of the Association of Taxation Technicians.
Alex is dual qualified, ACA and CTA, which allows him to advise his clients on commercial aspects, as well as on their tax issues. In the 18 months Alex has been with BDO, he has showcased his skills and knowledge through successfully working with many clients with complex issues.
