Law firm Brethertons has welcomed a new Chief Finance Officer.

Val Suley will oversee the finance and accounts functions of the firm and also sit on the management team, which manages Brethertons’ strategic operations.

Val complements the recent appointment of Sally Jones as Chief Operating Officer earlier this month.

With more than 20 years’ commercial finance experience gained across a diverse range of industry sectors, Val has previously led the finance operations at a number of multi-national enterprises including Curver UK, Invesys Controls Ltd and Kalmar Ltd. A qualified Chartered Accountant, Val joins the Midlands-based firm after relocating from Cornwall.

Val said: “Brethertons is nationally recognised for a number of different legal practice areas and has a presence right across the country. Being based in Cornwall, I didn’t hesitate at the chance to relocate to join the firm, which has an incredible reputation for growth and success, as well as an innovative and award-winning approach to customer service.

“A firm expanding at the rate of 28 per cent year-on-year needs a robust financial framework upon which to grow, and I’m looking forward to the challenge of leading Brethertons into the next phase of its development.”

Shaun Jardine, Chief Executive Officer at Brethertons, said: “We knew straight away that Val had what we were looking for. Her broad and proven experience really showed through when she produced a sample five-year financial strategy for the firm at her first interview! We’re thrilled to have her on board and look forward to supporting her in her new role.”
