Business growth consultant Rebecca Jenkins has been appointed as a non-executive officer at law firm Gregg Latchams, in support of its ambitious growth plans.
Ms Jenkins, who is a sales and marketing specialist, will work with the Bristol-based firm to expand the offering of its legal services for SMEs, private individuals and business owners across the UK and overseas.
The forward-thinking business provides legal counsel tailored to the needs of the modern customer, with accessibility, proactivity and flexibility prioritised across the board of client service delivery.
Through a varied calendar of events, seminars, webinars and articles on relevant issues, Gregg Latchams seeks to enable companies and individuals to benefit from the expertise of its staff outside of the scope of a contractual relationship.
Ms Jenkins is well poised to support this strategic phase for the firm, with her extensive experience seeing her grow a business as managing director to £55m before it was acquired by a multinational plc, where she was subsequently appointed as sales director.
Commenting on her role, Ms Jenkins said: “I have experience of growth in both a large corporate environment and in an SME, and so enjoy combining both sets of knowledge to support other businesses to create and implement growth strategies.
“It’s great to be working with a law firm which is undertaking such pioneering work to create more intuitive ways for businesses, business owners and individuals to access legal advice in a new way – without the fear of unexpected legal fees.”
Richard Hill, managing director at Gregg Latchams, said: “We are really pleased to welcome Rebecca to our growing team.
“Using her extensive sales and marketing experience and proven track record in successfully growing businesses, she will help us develop a more effective sales and marketing strategy that supports our commercial ambitions at this exciting stage for the firm.”
