A NEW managing partner has been appointed at Top 20 firm Kingston Smith.

Julie Walsh (pictured), who has served as a partner at the south east firm since 1987, takes on the role from Sir Michael Snyder – who will continue as senior partner.

Her appointment takes the number of female managing partners in the Top 100 firms to five. She has been closely involved with the firm’s management, including heading up its professional services client sector, which she will continue to do.

Other partners have been appointed to the firm’s executive board: Martin Muirhead, Maureen Penfold, Tim Stovold, Jon Sutcliffe and Graham Tyler.

Sir Michael said: “It is with great pleasure that I hand over the role of managing partner to Julie, who has for many years played an invaluable part in the management of the firm. I am also pleased to welcome the new members of the executive board, who will help build on the firm’s success and lead it forward.”

“I am delighted to take on this exciting role as managing partner,” said Walsh. “Working with Michael and the other members of the executive board, I look forward to leading the firm to further success in this challenging and dynamic business environment.”
