Napthens is ready to welcome new CEO Alexandra Hatchman, as the law firm heads for a record year to exceed revenue of £17 million.
Alex brings experience from sectors such as retail and management consultancy, and has previously held senior roles at Marks & Spencer, Tesco and Accenture, and worked internationally.
In 2016 after time abroad, she joined Fletchers Solicitors as a non-executive director before taking over as chief strategy and operations officer. There she became CEO and enjoyed a record financial performance, seeing its revenue rocket by 40% to more than £44.7m and pre-tax profit also soaring by 39% to almost £5.5m.
She was also recognised by the Law Society in 2018 when she won the Excellence in Practice Management award.
Alex will utilise her management consultancy and legal experience to support Napthens as the firm continues its growth journey.
She joins the north west firm that is ahead of target and on track to exceed £17m revenue in 2022.
The firm will also expand its footprint in Liverpool and build on the recent success of its corporate team, which in 2021 advised on over £600m value of deals, most notably the sale of Protec Fire and Security Group Ltd on to Bosch Building Technologies.
Alex added: “Napthens has huge potential, an incredible pool of talent, clear growth ambitions and a well-established client base which has been nurtured over many years.
“In the coming months I look forward to getting to know the people that make the business what it is, understanding what they wish to see in Napthens future, and combining this insight with my own experience to collectively drive the business forwards.”
