Sean Williams (pictured) has been appointed head of the Yorkshire & North East region for Leonard Curtis which includes offices in Leeds, Gateshead, and Barlborough.

The move is part of a new management structure that has been put in place to accelerate and promote a focus on growth.

Sean’s appointment is instrumental in the delivery of strategic direction for the Group - which recently announced its plans to double in size in the next three years.

Reporting to the executive board, Sean will be joined by three other regionally-based colleagues looking after restructuring and insolvency across four UK territories and two divisional heads looking after funding and legal services.

Sean commented: “After 15 years with Leonard Curtis, I’m delighted to be offered this new role. It’s an exciting time for the business and our region in particular. We have a great team who have demonstrated organic growth over a sustained period of time. The services we offer have never been more in demand, and I look forward to working with our team over a period of continued growth for the coming years. The financial backing of our investors also makes it an exciting time as we seek out acquisitions for all aspects of our business.“

Confirming the new structure CEO Dan Booth said: “I am delighted to be working with such an experienced leadership team and looking forward to seeing what we can all achieve. We are confident we can significantly scale this business and now we have clarity - by region and division - on how we will achieve it. Our plans for growth and development will be delivered by applying our key principles of confidence, commitment, and consistency.”
