Leeds-based chartered accountancy and business advisory firm Sagars, an AAB Group company, is enhancing its leadership team with four key appointments. James Hunt, Joel Topham, Helen Daniels and Gunhild Dam have been promoted to the newly created Director position, effective from 01 January, 2022.  


James, Joel and Helen provide audit, accountancy, taxation and business advisory services and Gunhild is a private client specialist.  


James is experienced in leading audits for a variety of different businesses, ranging from law firms and manufacturing companies to larger international groups.

Joel is dedicated to supporting professional practices and owner-managed businesses, assisting with forecasting, improving the production of management information and providing solutions to a range of practice management issues. 


Helen has significant experience working closely with charities and not-for-profit organisations. She supports them in preparing monthly management accounts and cashflow forecasts, and assists clients with a range of business management issues.

Focussing on wealth preservation and managing the main taxes, Gunhild is particularly experienced in the taxation of family and owner-managed businesses. 


Chris Jones, Managing Partner at Sagars, commented: “These appointments are richly deserved, recognising not only the skill and expertise of each individual, but the contributions they have made to their respective teams.  


“One of the driving factors behind our recent merger with AAB was to provide great opportunities for our team. The introduction of the Director role is one of the first steps in ensuring that we can deliver on this commitment, while also aligning our approach with that of the wider AAB group.  


“Going forward, our strong and diverse leadership team will not only support the growth aspirations of our business, but also strengthen our ability to deliver the very best client service across a changing market in the UK and globally.” 


Sagars and AAB announced they had merged in November 2021 with a clear growth strategy in place to deliver £70 million revenue in 2026, fuelled by recent investment from August Equity.
