This is an exciting time to be joining Seneca Partners and a brilliant opportunity for me to work in an experienced team in a dynamic and progressive business. I know the team well, having spent over 7 years with Seneca in another part of the business but this was a logical move for me. The time was right to take on a new challenge and I’m excited to get going.”
