With previous experience of working within the permanent credit risk recruitment for UK banks, lenders and consultancies, Steven Harrison has joined the company to focus on the credit risk and analytics market both across Yorkshire and the UK.
Steven said: “I’m really excited to get involved in planning and hosting events for analytics professionals. This isn’t something I have had the opportunity to do in my previous role, so it gives me a new string to add to my bow.
“The team I am working with and the wider business have already been extremely welcoming, and I am surrounded by people that are high performing which gives me the chance to work in a progressive organisation and to push forward with my career.”
Richard Hampshire, LHL Group

His construction industry experience has covered a diverse range of projects working in the residential, agricultural, industrial, and commercial sectors.
He said: “It is an honour to follow in the footsteps of people of the calibre of my predecessors.
“Having worked in many different roles in all the LHL Group offices, I have made contact with lots of fellow professionals and gained a valuable insight into how different aspects of the property industry operate…
“I will take the best of this to continue to develop LHL Group and our talented staff.”
