Sasha said: “I’m looking forward to supporting the further growth and positive impact of the firm on the wider communities in which we work.

“As an employer we need to attract, support and retain talent and it’s crucial that we continue to provide opportunities to a wide and varied group of people by offering alternative training schemes to the conventional routes.”

TLT managing partner John Wood added: “Sasha will continue to drive many of the fantastic projects that Andrew has led on, to make TLT a successful and sustainable business for our people and our clients.

“The firm has delivered a new progressive approach to working alongside an ambitious strategy in recent years and, despite the economic uncertainty in the UK, TLT has grown at pace; winning new clients, recruiting fantastic talent and leading the way in terms of wellbeing, environmental and social initiatives.”

TLT, which employs round 1,200 people across six offices, including Bristol, reported a record 2021/2022 financial year with turnover up 30% to £144m – exceeding the £140m target the firm initially set for 2025.
