Yorkshire-based accountancy and advisory firm Garbutt and Elliot has announced the appointment of Laura Masheder as partner.
Masheder has worked at the firm for over 16 years playing an “instrumental role” in its audit and advisory team. However, in recent years her work has also focused more on the charity and not-for-profit sector, after Garbutt and Elliot acquired specialist charity audit firm Ian Pick Up and Co in 2015.
In her new role Masheder will focus on further growing the firm’s charities team and its Yorkshire client base.
Mashender’s appointment takes the number of partners to 13. The independent firm now has offices in Leeds and TYork, which includes over 183 employees.
Masheder said she is “delighted” to be welcomed as a partner, and added: “I want to build on the success we have recently achieved and establish Garbutt and Elliott as the go to firm for the region’s charities. I am passionate about the sector and enjoy its challenges and diversity.
“By working closely with our clients, we help them to meet their legal and regulatory obligations, offering practical and pragmatic advice. I am looking forward to contributing to the future success of the firm.”
Russell Turner, managing partner said: “Laura is a great addition to our team of partners and her promotion is well deserved.
“Laura and the charities team have worked hard to build and establish a strong reputation within the Yorkshire region as charity specialists, and as a result we now work with many high-profile charities and not for profit organisations.”
He added: “Laura’s appointment underlines our strong commitment to building a first class charities team, as well as our continued investment in the development of our people and recognising their success.”
