Crowther Accountants strengthens management team with recruit from HSBC


"Ive always been impressed with the way Crowther do things. The team is extremely proactive, on-the-ball and quick to spot opportunities for clients."
David Busfield



A former HSBC senior commercial banking manager has been appointed by Huddersfield-based Crowther Accountants as its new business development manager.

David Busfield joins the firm’s 20-strong team with over 40 years’ experience in the banking industry. His role will see him generating new opportunities, working with existing relationships and managing sales activities.

Starting his career with Midland Bank in 1976 — more latterly HSBC Group — he initially worked in the retail banking sector before moving into the commercial and corporate environment over 20 years ago. His career has seen him work in various roles, before being appointed to the senior commercial role five years ago. Throughout this time, he’s supported a wide variety of SME’s and corporate clients, covering both West and South Yorkshire.

Whilst this is a new role created within the firm for David, he’s been an associate of Crowther Accountants for many years. He said: “In the past we’ve shared some of the same customers and I’ve always been impressed with the way Crowther do things. The team is extremely proactive, on-the-ball and quick to spot opportunities for clients. 

“So when this new role became available and I saw their plans for growth, I decided that I wanted to be part of it. I’m excited to be joining such a great team.”

And David’s diary is already filling up with opportunities for the Crowther team –  among both new and existing clients. Next month, the firm is hosting a social event at Huddersfield Tennis Club for Crowther Accountants’ clients, partners and contacts, as well as some of David’s own business and professional connections.

Michelle Crowther, the firm’s business development director, added: “We’ve always had a fantastic working relationship with David — it’s been built on mutual integrity and trust over a number of years. He’s a very well respected member of the Leeds and Huddersfield business community and we know that he’ll be a great ambassador for the firm.

“We’re delighted that he has joined us and, in fact, he’s already proved to be a brilliant addition to our team! His experience of dealing with small and medium enterprises across the region will only add to our reputation of delivering a first-class service to our clients.”

Crowther Chartered Accountants provides accountancy, taxation and bookkeeping support to over 600 clients across Yorkshire and the rest of the UK. 

The firm is also set to further expand its team and is currently looking to recruit an accounts manager and has recently filled various trainee positions within the firm.
