Newcastle-based Winn Solicitors, which specialises in road traffic accident and personal injury claims, has expanded its team with new appointments to its finance and marketing teams.
Amy Thompson, 26, from Wallsend, has joined as digital marketing manager and Jenny Turner of Chester-le-Street has taken the role of financial controller as the firm looks to implement ambitious growth plans over the coming year.
Having spent almost six years as head of digital with a Newcastle creative agency, Amy will be responsible for driving forward the online marketing strategy for Winn Solicitors as it looks to expand its geographic reach beyond its North East heartland and develop the range of services it offers to target specific road-users such as cyclists.
Jenny will play a key role in driving forward the business’s growth plans as well as implementing improvements to current systems and procedures.
Bringing to her new position almost 20 years’ financial experience gained with leading industry names from the region, Jenny said: “These are exciting times at Winn Solicitors; it is a very ambitious firm which has an established platform for growth and a dynamic management team keen to further develop our presence both in the North East and nationwide through targeted acquisitions and expansion of our services.”
Amy Thompson added: “Winn Solicitors is highly regarded and is widely recognised as a market leader nationwide. Since being established in 2002, the firm has been instrumental in challenging the perception of the sector and at the forefront of pioneering a new approach when it comes to personal injury and road traffic accident claims.
“I am looking forward to the challenge of steering forward an innovative digital strategy which will embrace not only the practical and financial support for people who find themselves victims of road traffic accidents but the holistic approach that is taken to ensure that they receive high-quality, expert-led support across the medical and rehabilitation care that they need to move forward with their lives.”
Jeff Winn, managing director at Winn Solicitors, said: “As a firm, we have very big plans for the future and to achieve our goals we need a team of talented individuals to support our objectives. Amy and Jenny have significant knowledge and expertise which will have a major impact on what we are looking to accomplish and I am delighted to welcome them on board.”
