Leading legal firm Forbes Solicitors has reacted to the growth and success of the business by appointing Mike Bentham as its new Finance Director.
Mike brings more than 18 years of finance experience with him, and has spent time working across every function that exists in a modern day finance department.
His career has seen him operate across a multitude of industries ranging from logistics and warehousing solutions to media, financial services and retail before culminating in Law.
Those roles included working for Talksport owners UTV Radio (now Wireless Group) and Cash Generator, where he helped change the way the company analysed its business as it went through a large growth plan.
Mike, who is from Skelmersdale, said: “The opportunity arose to join a forward-thinking business that is investing in both its people and its ambition of becoming a standout law firm.
“Once I knew what the current and future plans of the firm were, I just wanted to be part of that journey and I am delighted to be joining an exceptional team.”
Forbes CEO Oliver Burton said: ““Mike is bringing a wealth of experience from across a wide range of sectors, which will be of immense benefit to the business at what is a very exciting time of growth and success. We are delighted to have him on board.”
