The swoop included remaining PKF Perth partners Craig Melville, John Murray, Marc Loftus, Joe Evangelista and managing partner Mark Pollock. The BDO swoop followed a Deloitte raid last month on the firmâ€™s audit partners.All five tax specialists will be made partners at BDO Perth and take their teams with them. The raid will take BDOâ€™s nationwide staff to 1300 and partners to 170.It is understood that PKFâ€™s Perth chairman Brian Aitken is also likely to move to BDO, but remaining Perth partner Agnes Vacca has left and joined one of the big four firms, believed to be KPMG."This may be an opportunity for CPA to go and knock on PKA's door!!!
