Scott Cacurak, an assurance partner at BDO, has been appointed to national director of the firm's transaction advisory services.
Cacurak, who joined the firm in 2005 and works out of the firm's Los Angeles office, will work with regional TAS leaders to develop go-to-market strategies for the practice.
Cacurak will coordinate with the firm's private equity practice and various industry teams to ensure clients receive technical resources and industry support for those considering an acquisition or preparing for sale.†
Transaction related services are critical to BDOís middle market client base of strategic acquirers, private equity firms and lenders.
To assist with Cacurak's efforts the firm tapped Fred Campos, who is based in South Florida, and Tony Enlow from the Dallas office, as directors and regional leaders in the national TAS practice.
"Private equity lives and dies by getting deal flow, and the TAS practice is close to the action with regard to transactions, so the relationship between the two areas is critical," said Lee Duran, National Director of the Private Equity Practice of BDO USA. "Scott's experience with transaction advisory services and within the private equity industry make him an ideal person to orchestrate our strong TAS team to serve clients."
Cacurak was a founding member of the BDO National Private Equity Industry Task Force and serves as BDOís West Region Hedge Fund, Venture Capital and Private Equity audit practice leader. He is one of the firmís experts on technical matters related to private investment partnerships. Cacurak's industry expertise includes hedge funds, private equity/venture capital, technology (software) and financial services clients ranging from venture capital-backed emerging growth enterprises to global Fortune 1000 publicly held companies.
