Excerpts from award presentation remarks:
“Thiru has spent over 20 years with BDO and as the India Desk leader, he has tirelessly acted as a liaison for colleagues and clients. Fluent in the business culture of India, Thiru maintains close relationships … and is regularly involved in winning international business between the U.S. and India. He has been elected to the board of Indo-U.S. Chamber of Commerce and is dedicated to helping foster cross-cultural ties and enhancing local business exposure to India. Thiru is being awarded the BDO Medal in recognition of his role in facilitating cross-border engagements between our U.S. and Indian firms.”

“It’s a great honor to be recognized among the prominent BDO Medal winners from across the globe. My role as the India Desk leader works because of the great team effort with BDO in India. They’ve grown exponentially over the last three years in a continuously disruptive market, providing increased opportunities to BDO. As the BDO global dream states, ‘It’s time for BDO to lead,’ and I’m greatly appreciative of the award and opportunity to be part of our global dream.”  — Thiru Govender

Brian Miller (R) accepts the award from BDO Global professional Werner Schiesser

Excerpts from award presentation remarks:
“Brian is a key partner in developing thought leadership and delivering new innovations and technologies across our global organization. Over the last year, he has been a strategic powerhouse — all the while leading day-to-day activities that are dedicated to driving new approaches and modernizing how we deliver services to our clients. These include sponsoring the BDO Portal and BDO Advantage projects and supporting the BDO Centre for the Audit of Tomorrow initiative. Brian is being awarded the BDO Medal in recognition of his contribution to global projects, his dedication to innovation and his boundless energy.”

“It is very humbling to receive the BDO Medal and be included among such luminaries in our firm’s distinguished history. Over the last year, I’ve come to see that our commitment to exceptional client service and to being leaders in our markets and across countries and service lines and industries is a shared BDO aspiration. To have played a small part in delivering technology drivers like the BDO Portal to the network in a way that begins to make that aspiration real has been profoundly gratifying.“ — Brian Miller
