The Advocate Group is delighted to announce Tim Kelly as their new Chairman, further establishing the company’s wide range of senior management expertise.

Chris Dickenson Company Director said, “By having such well-established senior figures within the company, advising on strategy and sharing their in-depth industry knowledge, allows us to partner even better with our clients. We already have industry specific consultants who have worked with the sectors for which they now recruit, so we are continuing to add to our industry astuteness. We look forward to a long relationship with Tim”
