A NEW business development team is in place at a York firm of solicitors as it looks to break into the Uk’s top 100 law firms.

The quartet will enhance Langleys’ CRM, digital marketing, events and PR capabilities and will report into recently-appointed business development director Dave Clarkson.

Rachel Franks has joined the team as events co-ordinator from event management roles with Hotel du Vin York and the University of York.

Kate Went joins as digital marketing executive and Chris Pegg has been recruited to develop Langleys’ CRM systems. The team is completed by PR co-ordinator Sarah Derby Need.

Mr Clarkson said: “These appointments mark the start of an exciting new chapter for Langleys.

“We now have a full team in place who possess the skills to drive Langleys forward.”
