BDO South Africa is pleased to announce Buhle Hanise as the Head of Business Restructuring Services in BDO Advisory, following a well-considered and seamless succession plan. With a wealth of experience in business restructuring and turnaround management, Hanise brings a dynamic vision and strategic leadership to this pivotal role.

As BDO South Africa continues to expand its suite of services and enhance its capabilities to meet the evolving needs of clients, the appointment of Hanise underscores the firm’s commitment to excellence and innovation in addressing complex business challenges.

As a seasoned professional with extensive experience in guiding businesses through periods of transformation and growth, Hanise has navigated the intricacies of business restructuring. She has consistently demonstrated a keen ability to identify opportunities for improvement and implement strategic initiatives to drive sustainable results.

“I am thrilled to lead the Business Restructuring Services division,” says Hanise. “In today’s business landscape there is an increasing need for leaders who are resilient, think out of the box, are agile and innovative while still being conscious and empathetic. When women become leaders, we provide a different set of skills. These, combined with my practical understanding of how companies work from the ground up, will bring a fresh perspective to growing the division, and the business, as a whole.”

Hanise’s vision for the role is centred around a client-centric approach, focused on understanding each client’s unique needs and developing customised strategies to help them navigate periods of transition and uncertainty.

Hanise feels strongly that businesses must be open to the idea of restructuring, when to engage it and how it will amplify growth. This, since the role of a business restructuring partner is evolving – and at a rapid rate. She explains: “In a challenging economy, every business needs transformative support – optimising internal restructuring and leveraging growth. In an uncertain economic landscape, businesses will be impacted. Having a trusted advisor partnering with you into the future around fundamental decisions could mean the difference between standing still or moving forward.

Hanise is a qualified Chartered Accountant and currently serves as the Non-Executive Director for multiple organisations. She also holds memberships at The South African Institute of Chartered Accountants (SAICA), the Institute of Directors in Southern Africa (IoDSA), and South African Restructuring and Insolvency Practitioners (SARIPA).

As BDO South Africa looks ahead to the future, the firm remains steadfast in its commitment to delivering innovative solutions and exceptional service to clients across industries. “Buhle Hanise’s appointment reflects our continued investment in talent, and in particular strong female talent, and our dedication to providing best-in-class services to our clients,” said Thuto Masasa, National Head of Advisory Services at BDO. “Her proven leadership and deep expertise in business restructuring positions her well to lead our Business Restructuring Services team. We are confident that under her guidance, we will further strengthen our capabilities to accelerate our growth exponentially and deliver even more value for our clients.”
