Fox Rodney Search makes two new senior leadership appointments
Fox Rodney Search has appointed Siobhán Lewington as head of London and Jonathan Fort as director in charge of the London partner team. Both appointments are effective immediately.
Lewington is appointed as head of London to integrate and oversee the firm’s partner, associate and in-house teams in London. Joining the firm in 2006, Lewington has been instrumental in driving the firm’s private practice growth in London, acting for UK, US, International and boutique firms. In her new role, she will continue to oversee and develop key client and candidate relationships.
Stephen Rodney, CEO, said, “Siobhán has been a board member for a number of years, making a key strategic input into the growth of Fox Rodney Search. We have had a head of international, Adrian Fox, for some time and with the ambitious growth plans we have for our London office in the next 3 years, now is the right time for us to create this new, strategic role for Siobhan. We are determined to consolidate and build further our position as a leading adviser to the game changers in the law firm and in-house markets. As we approach our twentieth anniversary next year, we want to be a step ahead of our competitors in helping our clients to grow their businesses and their strong pipeline of future talent, which we are also supporting through our recently launched ‘Developing Diversity’ network.”
Fort becomes director in charge of the London partner team and will work with Lewington and other leaders in the business to further build the partner offering in London. Jonathan will remain a full time fee earner. He joined the firm as a director in 2017 and has over ten years’ experience recruiting partners in London and continental Europe.
Rodney commented, “Since joining us, Jonathan has quickly established himself as a pivotal leader in our partner business and his appointment will allow us to provide greater coverage to clients in the London partner recruitment market, building on our existing strong track record of delivering talent to law firms.”
