A law firm has elected a local councillor to be its senior partner – and hired a new chief executive to lead its strategy.
Warners Solicitors, which has offices in Sevenoaks and Tonbridge, selected Cllr Mark Davis to take control of the firm, following the retirement of Mark Rosser.
Cllr Davis has represented the Cage Green ward on Tonbridge and Malling Borough Council since 2007.
He is also a trustee of Tonbridge and Malling Leisure Trust and a governor of Tonbridge Grammar School.
Cllr Davis trained at Warners in the early 1980s and returned to the firm as a partner in 1988 after a brief stint working for firms in East Grinstead and London
He said: “Having been brought up in Tonbridge and associated with Warners for most of my professional life, I am very pleased to take on the role of senior partner.
“Warners has gone from strength to strength under Mark Rosser’s dedicated leadership, and demand for its services, for both businesses and private individuals, continues to grow.”
Warners Solicitors chairman David Wilson described Cllr Davis as “an excellent choice” thanks to his “extensive knowledge of the local area”.
The firm also appointed Jeremy Ward as chief executive to look after overall operations and strategic direction, stepping up from his position as finance director.
Mr Ward said: “I am delighted to take on this new role within the firm at such an exciting time.”
