Leonard Bagayao has been an auditor at BG Private since 2018 and was made Assistant Manager in 2023. Prior to that he worked as an accountant and external auditor at several small- and medium-sized firms in both the Philippines and Singapore.

As a dedicated and detail-oriented auditor, he has been meeting the audit needs of companies and other entities in Asia and Australia for many years.

Leonard Bagayao specialises in compliance and technical assurance procedures and finding ways for clients to improve their accounting systems and controls.

Throughout his career, he has focussed on developing his communication skills, translating highly technical audit matters into easy-to-understand terms. This helps his clients feel confident and comfortable that their case is in hand.

He is knowledgeable in the areas of financial analysis and computational tasks. He is a whizz with Excel formulas, and clients know they can turn to him to set up the most efficient and effective spreadsheets for their record keeping and reporting.

He supervises the work of some of our more junior auditors and is always willing to lend a hand to help all members of the team progress in their careers.

He loves playing basketball and barbequing with friends, as well as reading.
