Leeds and York accountancy, advisory and audit firm Garbutt and Elliott has appointed Daisy Marsden as senior manager to its audit team.
Marsden’s appointment comes to support the team’s growth enabling Garbutt and Elliott to “continue to support our clients during these exceptional times”.
She joins the firm from KPMG where she worked for ten years in the Leeds and Birmingham offices managing audits for AIM listed plc’s, large private businesses as well as working with charities and pension schemes.
Over the past 18 months Garbutt and Elliott’s Audit team has been strengthened with a combination of external recruitment and internal promotions. Audit partner Chris Butt joined in April 2019, followed up by Laura Masheder’s promotion to partner and a series of promotions within the team, plus the recruitment of 7 qualified and part qualified staff in the past 12 months.
The team has a further five graduate trainees to start in September which makes the team one of the largest independent firm audit teams in the region with 45 staff members and six partners and directors.
Chris Butt, partner at Garbutt and Elliott said: “Daisy is a great addition to the team, with an impressive background working with some well-known blue chip brands. Her appointment demonstrates our commitment to invest in our people and to support our clients with fantastic service during these challenging times.

Marsden added: “I am thrilled to be joining such an ambitious and growing firm. The last few months have been extremely challenging for everyone, but we have seen the strength and quality of many Yorkshire businesses and I am looking forward to sharing my expertise to help build and support our clients during this uncertain period.”
