Black Country law firm George Green has expanded its management team with the appointment of David Stevenson as chief executive.
Mr Stevenson, a solicitor, has spent his entire working life in the legal industry and has been a partner at both Eversheds and Pinsent Masons.
He comes to George Green from Shakespeares, where he was head of commercial services and a main board member.
Paul Bennett, George Green’s senior partner, said: “David has been at the cutting edge of highly regarded client service delivery and talent management in law firms for many years and, as such, this appointment is a real coup for us, our staff and, vitally, our clients.”
Mr Stevenson added: “Put simply, success in this job is about providing great client service and a great place to work - neither of which come about by accident.
“I am seriously excited about the opportunity here to make a real difference in what we do for our clients and how we attract and retain the best people.”
George Green has offices in Cradley Heath and Wolverhampton.
