Banks Sadler in boardroom reshuffle

London agency Banks Sadler has announced a restructure at board level. Current managing director Leigh Jagger becomes chief executive officer, finance director Lawrie Meechan becomes chief financial officer and a new post of chief operating officer (COO) has been created. The company are currently recruiting for the COO position, and David Campbell, who continues as chairman of Banks Sadler said: “The incoming COO is crucial to our development. They will need to manage a complex operation, across multiple sites, whilst fitting into our culture. This is a role where they will build on the very firm foundations we have built and help take the business to the next level.” According to a statement from Banks Sadler, the restructure means that Jagger “will be able to focus more of her time on existing clients and strategic projects, whilst the COO will take over the day-to-day operations of the business”. Jagger commented: “In the seven years that I’ve been in the position I’m proud of how everyone involved has developed the business, winning new clients improving processes and opening offices in York and Warsaw, with France and Germany following over the next few months. In order to cement these developments we need to ensure our clients receive the best possible service. The restructure means I can look at our resources, staff and systems, ensuring they are 100% focused on our clients’ needs and enabling the COO free to deal with the daily management and operation of the business.”
