Legal Director

Excited to have joined the Vimto family.

When I heard about the Legal Director role with Nichols plc, I just knew that I had to apply for it. I live with the biggest Vimto fan ever - he put his Vimto cordial centenary bottle on my desk to bring me good luck in the application process! I feel very lucky for having secured the role and I am excited about the opportunities for both the business and my own personal development.

My vision for Nichols’s future

I am looking forward to continuing to develop Nichols’ legal strategy. Supporting the business to do the right things, in the right way will be central to that strategy.

What has been your experience working as part of Nichols?

I joined the business in February 2021 and I received such a warm welcome from colleagues. Already I can see that this is a business where its people truly do live its values.

Spending time with my family and friends is important to me. I enjoy being outdoors walking and running in the hills. I relax by doing pilates and going to the gym. Over the past few years, I have been refining my gardening and baking skills – and I look forward to trying out some of the new products from the Vimto baking range!

Life before Nichols:

My legal career started in private practice with a national law firm at its Manchester offices. I made the move in-house three years after qualifying as a solicitor. This is my fourth, and definitely the most exciting, in-house role!
