We’re delighted to announce that Laura Masheder has joined the firm as Partner.

Laura boasts two decades of experience in audit and advisory services and has specialised in charity audits for more than ten years.

Laura was previously Head of Charity and Not for Profit at a medium-sized regional accountancy firm, where she spent almost 20 years progressing through the ranks to Partner after joining as a trainee.

As well as utilising her extensive charity sector experience to support BHP’s Charities team, Laura will employ her broader corporate audit expertise and work closely alongside York office Partner Daniel Sowden and the York team to continue to grow the wider client base in the area.

Laura said: “I’m so pleased to be joining BHP as Partner at such an exciting time for the firm. BHP has an exceptional reputation for its work with charities across the Yorkshire region and for having strong links with the local areas it serves.

“They already have a fantastic client base and I’m really looking forward to adding value to the York team and helping to expand that base even further.

“I’m incredibly passionate about the charity sector and excited about the many opportunities that BHP presents for professional development and building relationships with clients. Following conversations with my new colleagues, I know that there’s a special culture embedded within the firm; they support one another and care about their clients.

“BHP delivers the whole breadth of service lines, but with a very personal approach, which is rare among large accountancy firms. They’re continuing to expand throughout Yorkshire, and I’m delighted to be part of that growth.”

Jane Marshall, Partner and Head of Charities at BHP, said: “We’re thrilled to welcome Laura to BHP. Laura’s appointment clearly acknowledges our strong commitment to our charity clients, and her knowledge and experience will be a great asset to our team.

“We’re excited to start working with Laura to build on the strong reputation that we’ve already developed within the sector.”

BHP Partner Daniel Sowden said: “I’m delighted to welcome Laura to the York team and we’re looking forward to benefiting from the expertise that she will bring to our clients.

“We’ve grown significantly over recent years and continue to do so, so it’s the perfect time for Laura to join us. I’m keen to work with her to develop and grow our offering in the region.”
