I am excited to succeed Sara and continue the same drive and ambition for growth and success of the firm for the benefit of our clients and people.”

The firm has gone from strength to strength and I am excited to see Andrea move into this role. She has been a vital part of the firm’s management committee as well as an exceptional department head. Andrea brings great expertise to this role, and I know that the firm is in excellent hands.”
