Irving goes to BDO as unit director

Leading legal IT consultant John Irving is joining BDO Stoy Hayward as director of the professional practices unit.

Irving, who has been running his own consultancy for over a year since leaving Robson Rhodes, says: "I am delighted with the development."

The move will enable him to undertake larger projects which he says he had to turn down. Also, he says his existing client base, largely out of London, and that of BDO Stoy Hayward will complement each other.

The unit numbers about eight people and includes specialist consultants and technicians.
