National accountancy firm Saffery Champness has appointed corporate audit and accounts specialist Jonathan Davis to help lead the expansion of its Harrogate office.
Davis joins from RSM Tenon where he was an associate director in the audit and accounts team, based at Leeds and Harrogate, and worked throughout Yorkshire with some of the region’s leading owner managed businesses, large corporates and international organisations.
He previously worked for KPMG for nine years where he first met Martin Holden, head of office at Saffery Champness.

Jonathan said he was pleased to be joining the firm at a pivotal time in its development.
Saffery Champness is poised for significant expansion in Harrogate and is set to become a dominant force in this vibrant economic region.
I see this as an excellent opportunity to assist with business development throughout North and West Yorkshire where there is a great deal of corporate activity and a lot of exciting business going on.
Martin Holden said:
Jonathan’s experience as part of the senior management team at RSM Tenon working with some of North Yorkshire’s most prominent businesses will be invaluable to us as we roll out our growth plans over the coming months.
As well as bringing valuable audit and accounts expertise to the practice Jonathan’s role will be a strategic one and he will assist us in the growth of our business portfolio and our private wealth, rural business and corporate tax divisions.
